Understanding Denmark & the Danes

Course information

If you think that Denmark is an odd country, and the Danes behave strangely, you are not the only one. We will teach you what it means to live in a welfare state like Denmark, and recognize the reasons behind the high taxes, the free health and education systems as well as the general ideal of economic equality. You get insight into etiquette and food culture while exploring the nuances of Danish expressions like hygge, pyt and jantelov. With more knowledge of Danish values and how Danes are shaped culturally, you will be better equipped to thrive in Denmark.
