Most people who learn Danish agree that the sounds of the Danish language are impossible! Danes do not articulate even half of the words as they are written, and many of the sounds are swallowed in the process. And Danes stare at you in bewilderment if you slightly mispronounce even a single vowel. Therefore, it can really pay off to devote extra energy to cracking the code of Danish pronunciation.
Our course in Danish pronunciation covers all skill levels and can help you wrap your head around Danish pronunciation. We follow a fixed program of eight classroom sessions, each of which features a specific theme that has stumped many.
Often you cannot hear when you are making mistakes in pronunciation, or understand why it is so difficult to produce the right sounds. Our pronunciation course teachers can give you individual feedback on what you need to work on, and how. Even though the themes are set in advance, we work with words and phrases based on your everyday life.
You only receive two lessons at a time in a pronunciation course, as practicing pronunciation is demanding for the mind and your vocal muscles. We make sure that you get a thorough review of the main challenges, but in a tempo that you can keep up with.
You will have the opportunity to practice with others facing the same problems – in a safe room where we can laugh together about the hopeless Danish sounds, but without laughing at each other.
The pronunciation course is for students that have at least a A1.2 level, as the challenges of pronunciation are similar regardless of whether you have recently started learning Danish or have spoken Danish well for many years.
This is a supplementary course that focuses exclusively on pronunciation. If you are a beginner or in the starting stages of learning Danish, we recommend that you take one of our standard courses alongside this course.
A pronunciation course can be part of an extended process of learning Danish:
