Learn Danish with IDA

Study Danish together with peers in classes tailored to your industry and worklife.

IDA, The Danish Engineering Society, will continue to offer Danish classes to its international members in cooperation with Copenhagen Language Center. We are now expanding with more levels and an online option to accommodate the needs of more practiced Danish learners and members living outside Greater Copenhagen.

You will receive qualified instruction adapted to your industry and job functions. The courses are suited for busy professionals. We use a blended learning method with only one weekly class combined with online material for flexible self-study.

We will offer three courses in the fall:

The level indicators (A1-C2) refer to the common European language levels (CEFR). Please choose the relevant course based on your current level of Danish. Find the definition of each level.
