This course is aimed at non-Danes who wish to focus primarily on Danish pronunciation, improving how well they are understood at work and in everyday life in Denmark.
We begin by listening carefully to the students and identifying their pronunciation problems. There may be problems with the pronunciation of specific vowels or sounds that do not exist in the student’s mother tongue. Alternatively, a strong national accent may be overpowering their Danish pronunciation. Our teachers have the skills and experience necessary to help students overcome all these problems. The students will work intensely with their teacher to improve their particular pronunciation, focusing on the rhythm and melody of Danish, intonation and glottal stops and individual Danish sounds. We use the language laboratory, CDs and an online pronunciation programme that the student can work with at home.
By the end of the course, the students will be able to communicate more clearly and be easily understood when they speak in Danish.
A pronunciation course is typically made up of between 20-30 lessons. We recommend 2-3 lessons once a week to give the student time to practise at home.
