Danish for beginners 2 (A1) - online
A course for students who cannot come to class or live outside Copenhagen.
There will be two online sessions a week.
This class requires self discipline and motivation!
This course is for you if you have taken our beginner level 1 or a beginners' course somewhere else.
In this course you will continue to strengthen your skills in speaking Danish in everyday situations, f.ex.: when you
- are shopping
- are eating at a restaurant or going to a café
- are speaking to your friends
- are taking the bus, train, or metro
We will talk about leisure time and interests, and you will learn to tell about what you are doing when you are not working or studying. You will also learn to explain what you did before, where you were, and what you will be doing later.
We practise expressing things that have happened in the past.
You will learn to express what you like, and what you don't like.
We will also work with listening and video exercises, so your understanding of spoken Danish keeps improving.
It is critical that you acquire good Danish pronunciation, which is why, every time we meet, we focus on how to pronounce the different sounds unique to Danish, and how the melody of a Danish sentence should sound.

The teaching material Danish to Go is a learning system which is developed by teachers at Studieskolen specifically for Studieskolen's students.

How is the class conducted?
The teaching form is online.
You will work on your computer on listening comprehension, reading and writing exercises. Twice a week there will be online sessions where we practise oral Danish and conversation. We will also work on pronunciation and grammar.
The class is held in Danish, but we use English as a helping language, f.ex. to explain grammar.
This course is for those who already speak some Danish, f.ex if you have already taken the first half of Danish Education 3 module 1, or Studieskolen's Danish for beginners 1.
Danish for beginners 2 is the equivalent of the second half of level A1 in the Common European Framework Reference for Languages.
You must have access to a computer good internet access and a web camera. It is an advantage if you are experienced in using digital tools.
