School Level Danish

Next team start: April 8, 2024

An investment in the future

Even though your child may hear and speak Danish at home, he or she may not be capable of developing his or her vocabulary and written language skills to match the requirements of Denmark’s public school system. Should your family return to Denmark, a deficiency in Danish language skills could become a serious educational problem for your child.


How do the online courses work?

Students uses our online learning portal, where our teachers provide personalized feedback to each student.

Every Monday for 40 weeks, new assignments open up for our students to complete when it suits their schedule.

Time spent?

You should expect 1½ to 2½ hours of work per week, depending on grade level and Danish proficiency.

However, older students can expect up to three hours of work per week at times.

Which grade should you choose?

We work with the Danish language just like in the primary school, so all texts and materials are in Danish. There are no English translations or subtitles, so your child must have approximately age-appropriate spoken and written Danish to get the full benefit of the lessons.

All students are offered an online test, which we use to recommend an appropriate grade level.

Educational films about Denmark

Every school year, we produce a series of films for use in our teaching. In the films, our teachers present different aspects of Danish culture in a broad sense. For example, it could be H.C. Andersen, cycling culture, the Vikings or homelessness.

We are deeply impressed by your online school. The professional level is really high, feedback on assignments is always qualified and useful, and the digital form of teaching works fantastically well.
