Family Summer School: A unique family experience
Family Summer School – is for children with Danish background aged 6-9 – along with up to two relatives such as parents, grandparents, or other close family members. It represents a unique opportunity to acquire knowledge of Denmark and the Danish language and to gain a network with other families living outside Denmark.
Family Summer School focuses on the culture of Denmark and language through Danish class, activities, and excursions. Your family will have a chance to have fun and relax together and at the same time get a cultural and linguistic boost that will strengthen your connection to Denmark. Your family will have an experience to energize body and soul.
How does it work?
Playful approach to Danish class and activities
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.
It is key for us that the 20 Danish language lessons at Family Summer School is with a playful and fun approach. This forms a versatile and creative teaching. It’s supposed to be fun for everyone to learn Danish. Additionally, both children and adults get language tools that they can use after and in their everyday life.
What does the parents say about Family Summer School?
Family Summer School language
The schools’ primary language is Danish. English is however used, to the extent, that it is necessary to make sure all families understand important information and security protocols. We do encourage all attendees to speak Danish though – also in their leisure time.
If your family does not speak Danish in their everyday life you may enroll in one of our online Danish courses – we have courses for kids, adolescent, and adults. Our online courses are flexible, so that they fit into a busy schedule. Read more about them here.
It takes place at a boarding school, so you should expect assigned rooms to be simply furnished. Attendees can choose from rooms with 2 or 3 beds and 1 extra bed. A small number of attendees may ask to make their own arrangements for accommodation and pay a lower fee of DKK 1.000 pr. attendee
