Intensive Danish Language courses for everyone at the Family Summer School

Intensive language courses

Family Summer School is not a “summer camp” but a school where educated Danish teachers set academic goals for their class. Children are introduced to Danish teaching methods, where group work and collaboration are keywords. The daily program is structured so it quickly gives everyone a comfortable and pleasant routine.

Activities and spare time

When the daytime lessons are done, attendees may participate in a variety of activities and tours designed for the entire family. The intent of these activities is to provide an opportunity for each family to share experiences in which the Danish language and the culture of Denmark are front and center. 

So many things made the stay at the Family Summer School truly special. Most of all the teacher’s and instructor’s incredible engagement, passion, patience, flexibility, energi, humor and positivity

Intensive Danish language courses divided into three different levels at the Family Summer School

The Danish language courses

During the event, children will receive between 28 and 35 Danish lessons with a playfull and fun approach. This forms a versatile and creative teaching. It’s supposed to be fun for everyone to learn Danish.
The lessons for children are offered at three levels (beginner, basic, and school level). Our teachers are professional and experienced teachers who have developed innovative instructional approaches geared to the participants.

Additionally, both children and adults get language tools that they can use after and in their everyday life.
