This Danish Summer Course is an intensive course for beginners who want to start using Danish as quickly as possible. We help you take the first steps towards learning Danish, with an emphasis on spoken Danish and the importance of pronunciation. Our paramount aim is to help you quickly begin using Danish in your daily life, which will help you get off to a good start in Denmark.
The course instruction is interwoven with everything great about Copenhagen in the summertime, including a number of fun and educational excursions based on the theme “Summer in Copenhagen”. We’ll track down the authentic Copenhagen and explore its three largest boroughs: Nørrebro, Vesterbro and Frederiksberg.
I loved the summer school course! It has been perfect for us newcomers to Denmark – a good chance to meet new people and socialize. It has been really helpful to have lots of opportunities to speak Danish! I also think the resources are excellent – the book and the website. And the teachers have been really patient and friendly. This has given me something fun, social and productive to do while I look for a job and really helped me to settle in Copenhagen.
We have plenty of time in the classroom, but you will still learn a lot in a very short time. We practice all aspects of the language, with a special emphasis on pronunciation and spoken Danish. You will have the opportunity to speak, and the opportunity to listen. Your teacher will support and help you to quickly build your vocabulary, improve your comprehension and begin actively speaking Danish.
We utilize a wide range of materials and teaching methods, including:
Every one of our Danish teachers has many years of experience, so your teacher will be familiar with all of the challenges in your process of learning Danish as a second language. We are fully dedicated to supporting your efforts to develop your language skills. As you progress through the course, you will receive ongoing feedback from your teacher and good advice on how you can overcome the specific challenges you face.
I enjoyed everything we did at the summer school in order to learn Danish. The best part was going to the museum when we learned colors in a different way. And workshop days were good because on those days we actually implemented all the things which we learned during class and that's the most important thing.
When you learn Danish for beginners at our Summer Course, you’ll get thorough and individually tailored instruction focusing on the key language skills: listening, speaking, writing and comprehension. We emphasize speaking and pronunciation so that you can quickly start speaking Danish – which we know is the key to getting off to a good start with life in Denmark.
With this course, you get:
We build your language skills to a level corresponding to A1 in CEFR. In other words, we have a defined framework of learning goals – even as we adapt topics and teaching methods to your individual needs. This approach ensures that your learning is both relevant and useful. After the course, you’ll receive an A1 level certificate of completion.
Our learning goals are visible, enabling you to track the goals of the instruction and the results you can expect. Your teacher can give you feedback at any time about your progress in relation to these learning goals.
Our intensive Danish Summer Course is designed to maximize personal guidance through classroom instruction. The course only has limited homework and the majority of teaching takes place in the classroom, where your teacher provides feedback and support to ensure a productive and enjoyable learning experience!
If you want to speed up your progress even more, you’ll have access to our online universe of exercises and materials for flexible self-study whenever it suits your schedule. In our online universe, you’ll find:
This online portal enables you to adjust the intensity of your studies. 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.
We also recommend that you do everything in your power to use Danish in your everyday life! You will learn much faster if you put the language to use in the real world.
To enroll in our intensive Summer School course, you must meet a number of requirements. You must have at least 12 years of schooling and a good command of English. We also expect that you:
If you have a busy everyday life with your job and/or family, we recommend that you choose one of our less intensive courses instead. For example, consider Danish Course Standard, where you’ll spend less time in the classroom but have considerably more homework and self-study.
There are no words that can describe my love for the experience. I personally believe that being in the summer school was a crucial and formative month for me because I was surrounded by new friends and supportive teachers.
