By combining the flexibility of online language training with the support and learning intensity of classroom instruction, your Danish language skills will develop rapidly.

You will be put in a class with students on the same level and be given mandatory readings and assignments suited your language development.

You should expect to spend approx. one hour a day on your online Danish language course. You can always supplement your online training with our other available services - study workshops, study and career services, social dinners etc.

With a Danish CPR number, you can learn Danish free of charge at Copenhagen Language Center. New students enrolling in Danish courses will be charged a refundable deposit of DKK 1,250.

Online Danish is for you...

...that do not want to attend a language school several times a week. You may not have the time or have irregular working hours that make it difficult to follow traditional classroom teaching.

To study online at Copenhagen Language Center, you must fulfill our requirements for online Danish. For example, you must be eligible for Danish course 3, be a resident of Denmark and have a sufficient command of the English language as well as adequate computer skills to enable you to follow the course.

Intensive blended learning

online and in-person learning experience

Our online programme consists of 5 intensive online Danish courses of 12 weeks duration.

Each 12 week course entails:

  • one weekly video conference session
  • one monthly class in traditional classroom setting (attendance is mandatory)
  • 7 to 10 hours self-study every week
  • a weekly optional chat / Q&A session

Every 12 week course concludes with a test. The final course concludes with the Danish language exam (PD3).

It’s quite natural for me to study online and it suits my lifestyle. Everyone with a busy life full of ever-changing working hours knows how hard it can be to attend school two or three times a week.

I love learning Danish online because I can choose when to do my homework and assignments.


Entry requirements - free online Danish course

You must be eligible for Danish course 3 and entitled to free Danish classes as part of the Danish Language Training Programme (the three-year study period). If you have exceeded your free study period, you must pay for the course yourself.

Online Danish with Copenhagen Language Center is free of charge for students, who are still entitled to free Danish classes as part of the Danish Language Training Programme (the three-year study period) and do not attend classes at another Danish language school.

If you are no longer entitled to free Danish classes, you must pay for the course yourself.
