FVU Start is a great way to improve your spoken Danish, with an emphasis on conversation and listening. Working with your teacher and fellow students, the interactive classroom instruction will help you build the skills to make your spoken Danish more fluent and understandable.
Reading and writing homework assignments are also used to actively introduce basic grammar and build your vocabulary. In short, you will receive instruction that covers all of the relevant language skills at your level, giving you the vocabulary and grammatical knowledge it takes to begin using Danish in your everyday life.
FVU Start is the right choice for students who plan to continue on to FVU Reading.
The course instruction is thematic and can be adapted to the special needs and interests of students. You’ll get:
You must pass a screening before starting the course. The screening is a short conversation and written test that takes about 90 minutes, where we will determine whether FVU Start is the right course for you.
All of our courses, including FVU Start, are based on the levels defined in CEFR. We have learning goals corresponding to CEFR at all course levels. This gives you a clear understanding of what the course aims to achieve and the results you can expect.
Your teacher maintains an awareness of the learning goals and ensuring that you build the skills needed to make your Danish more fluent and understandable. You will also receive individual feedback on what you can do outside of the classroom to improve even more, depending on the specific challenges you face in your efforts to master Danish.
FVU Start courses are held at Copenhagen Language Center’s building at Valdemarsgade 16. You can attend classes in the morning or evening and once or twice a week, according to what best suits your schedule.

You must already speak Danish at A2 level or higher, and you must be able to read and write Danish at the A1 level or higher. The aim is to prepare you for FVU Reading or another FVU course.
We require students enrolled in FVU Start to be active participants. We expect you to regularly attend classes and to make time for homework every week. This is essential for keeping up with course instruction and achieving the desired learning goals.
