Danes Worldwide is offering a family oriented Summer School from July 11 to 19 2020. The venue is Hellebjerg Efterskole nestled in spectacular surroundings near the strait between Jutland and the island of Funen. It is designed for expat children aged 10-13 accompanied by at least one parent, grandparent, or other close relative.
The event is a unique opportunity to strengthen your knowledge of Denmark and the Danish language and to network with other families just like yours. Interaction and speaking Danish are key features.
Family Summer School is a great option for those who …
- Have a Danish child/grandchild living outside Denmark
- Seek out “learning vacations” and desire to learn Danish in a fun and innovative way
- Have interest in the language and culture of Denmark
- Wish to make the acquaintance of other Danish expat families
Nine days of captivating instruction and activities for children and adults
During the event, children will receive 35 Danish lessons while adults have the opportunity to attend Danish language class or participate in various activities (speakers of 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.
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. Additionally, attendees may elect to go golfing or sailing in the local area (at going rates).

At Family Summer School 10-13 years, in collaboration with “Center for Familieudvikling”, we offer an intensive course for children and adults planning to settle in Denmark within a few years. We will prepare the children for a soft landing in Denmark focusing on schooling, friendship, and spare time.
