The Summer School program

Each year, three boarding schools in Denmark house 500 happy children aged 10 to 17, who spend nearly three weeks of their summer vacation learning about Danish language, culture and history at the Danish Summer School.

The program gives children strong Danish roots and a greater understanding of everyday life and culture in Denmark – and friendships for life!

More than 70 teachers and activity leaders provide instruction and oversee the many other activities that take place at the Summer School Denmark: theme parties, field trips, a day in Copenhagen with a trip to Tivoli, and much more. But of course, the main emphasis is on learning Danish, with students divided intro three levels.

All students attend 75 Danish lessons during the Summer School program, regardless of level.

Classes and levels

Participants stay at one of three schools during the just short of  three-week session. They are taught Danish at three levels: Danish for Beginners, Basic Level Danish and School Level Danish

Participants who are also enrolled in the online School Level Danish program may take the exam to earn the Graduation Certificate, Danish language (FSA) while they are at Summer School.

Participants aged 14-15 may choose to attend the special preparation course for confirmation during Summer School and then be part of the confirmation ceremony in a nearby church. Participants choosing this special course are taught by a minister and by a teacher specializing in religion and Danish language.
