Your start to building good relations with Danish people
Get a good start with Danish so that you are able to get by in everyday situations where you communicate with Danes. Perhaps you are travelling to Denmark, perhaps you are already here - in either case, being able to speak Danish will be a source of great pleasure.
On all Studieskolen's courses, our focus is on learning to speak the language. After all, the main goal for all who study Danish, and especially beginners, is being able to talk to Danish people.
Right from the start, you get a good vocabulary. Words and phrases that you can put to immediate use when handling a number of everyday situations in Danish, such as when you want to:

  • have a simple conversation

  • order food and drinks at a café or restaurant

  • introduce yourself and your family

  • read and write simple texts

  • say numbers, days, dates and times

  • fill out a basic form

At the same time, you will get an understanding of the basics of Danish language and you will also get an introduction to Danish culture and society.

We have special focus on Danish pronunciation as this is crucial for being understood in - and understanding - Danish. You will practise how to pronounce the different sounds unique to Danish, and gain a familiarity with how the melody of a Danish sentence should sound.

Teaching materials
This course uses the teaching material Danish to Go - a comprehensive approach to learning Danish developed exclusively by Studieskolen.
Danish to Go consists of a textbook, a workbook and an interactive website. Each chapter uses material from all for an integrated and comprehensive learning experience - the best way to learn Danish.
You will use the textbook and workbook in class and the website for further learning and exercises. The website has sound, video, practice exercises and online resources with grammar and vocabulary.

The teaching materials are included in the course price. The teacher will hand out the books in class, and you will also be given access to our online learning platform Moodle where you can communicate with your teacher, check your homework and get up-to-date information.

In the afternoons and evenings, you can participate in lectures on Danish language and culture, as well as a series of field trips, workshops and social events.
You will learn about Danish politics, literature, history and everyday life. Please find the programme here on Studieskolen's website.

Practical information
If you're a complete or almost complete beginner, this class is for you.
Danish for beginners is the equivalent of level A1 in the Common European Framework Reference for Languages. It is for those with no prior knowledge of Danish.
There are 20 45-minute lessons in class per week.
There will be 10-18 students per class.

If at some point we are required to discontinue classroom teaching with physical attendance due to coronavirus, lessons will continue online in Zoom.
Online lessons due to coronavirus are considered regular tuition, regardless of whether the individual participant wishes to make use of this option or not.
If we have to switch to online lessons, compensation in the form of reimbursement or replacement tuition will not apply.
Remember that you can always cancel your registration until one week before your course starts.

Esben recommends:
Do you have a favourite place in Copenhagen?

"Amager. I love the island of Amager. On Amager, there is a little more room to expand, but at the same time, it is still a central part of Copenhagen. The urban parts have people milling about, lots of good cafés and restaurants as well as great cultural experiences and the metro. Aside from city life, Amager also offers wonderful nature such as Amager Fælled and Amager Strandpark, little oases in the middle of Copenhagen. And the locals on Amager – ‘amarkanerne’ – tend to be really nice and straightforward. No fancy airs or graces, they say it like it is." 

Who is your favourite Danish writer?
"My favourite writer is J.P. Jacobsen. Even though he died more than 100 years before I was born, his writing still has something. His pen is razor-sharp and he writes moving and precise personal portraits as well as dream-like, fantasy-filled and mystical poetry. This makes him a writer I often return to. It is no wonder that his body of work is still a regular part of the curriculum at most Danish schools and colleges."
