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.

Danish summer school programme

The summer programme is an intensive 4 weeks Danish course.

The summer course consists of:

  • 25 weekly lessons (Mon-Friday 8.45am to 1pm)
  • classical classroom teaching combined with more flexible teaching methods
  • digital teaching and learning aids
  • a weekly excursion or field trip.

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

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.
