What will you get from this course?
In these courses, we focus on linguistically demanding situations from everyday and working life. We explore debates/discussions, grammatical points of focus, presentations and current events. The activities are designed to ensure personal feedback from your teacher many times in the course of a lesson.
All of our Danish courses at the C1 level revolve around themes, and you can choose the course that interests you most. We use a wide variety of materials to explore different types of dialog and spoken language, including radio programs, television and films, music and reading aloud.
With this course, you get:
Our Danish teachers are experienced and specially trained in teaching Danish as a second language. They have personally helped students with all of the challenges you might meet along the way, even at the highest levels of learning.
All of our courses, including Advanced Danish at C1 level, are based on the levels defined in CEFR. At all levels, we have clear learning goals that are directly tied to CEFR. This ensures that you can always keep track of the course goals and the results you can expect.
Your teacher keeps these learning goals in mind at all times, and can give you feedback on how quickly you are learning Danish. You can also get individual feedback on what you can do to get even better, depending on your specific challenges.
After the course, you’ll receive a certificate of completion for the C1 level.
Our Danish courses at the C1 level revolve around certain themes. This is because we know that a genuine interest in the topic can really improve the speed of progress in any form of learning. We have designed these courses to ensure that you’re motivated to talk about a given subject and can incorporate your own views and thoughts into classroom discussions.
Advanced Danish courses are offered with four different general themes:
You can choose the course that interests you most, and we promise that all four courses draw on authentic materials and current issues. Based on the level and learning goals, your teacher will adapt throughout the course to keep you challenged and continue improving your Danish.
We expect that you dedicate at least two hours a week to homework assignments, such as listening exercises and making audio recordings of yourself speaking Danish. These efforts will ensure that you achieve the desired results from the course.
We also give you access to our online universe, where you will find a wealth of exercises and materials for flexible independent studies to practice and refresh everything you learn in the classroom, including:
The independent exercises enable you to adjust the intensity of your learning. When you have extra time on your hands and the motivation to learn, you can always find extra materials for practicing and improving your Danish.
To enroll in an Advanced Danish Course, we require that you have completed at least 12 years of schooling and that you speak Danish at a level of +B2 or higher.
The classroom instruction is almost entirely in Danish, and English will be used to a very limited extent to convey complex instructions and important information.
Advanced Danish is for those who can study independently and effectively. Instruction during classroom sessions is intensive and fast-paced, so it’s important that you’re prepared to take responsibility for your own learning.
We also expect that you attend classes consistently. With just four weeks of instruction, you will miss out on a lot when you are absent. You must also spend at least two hours a week – and preferably more – on homework and independent studies to get the desired results from the course.
