Below is an overview of our various Danish language courses.

Danish courses for your child

Danes Worldwide offers online Danish courses for children and adolescents living abroad.

The courses are designed for children ages 6 to 18 and are divided into three levels: Beginner Danish, Basic Danish and School Danish. We can also open Learning Centers in cities with enough students to establish local classroom instructions.

Beginner Danish is offered for two age groups: ages 6 to 12 and ages 12 to 18. These two online learnings courses are fun yet serious and specially designed for children and adolescents learning Danish for the first time. Read more here.

Basic Danish is for childre who are able to use Danish in their daily lives, but who do not speak or write Danish at a level corresponding with their age. We are currently working on finalizing our teaching materials for this group so that courses can begin in autumn 2017.

School Danish offers Danish Courses from grades K to 9, with the opportunity to conclude studies by taking Denmark's official national test in Danish for 9th grade students.

Learning Centers are found in cities where it is possible to gather enough students for classroom instruction with a local Danish teacher. Learn more about Learning Centers and current locations here.

The Summer School programs help your child build strong ties with Denmark

The Summer School program has existed for more than 30 years, offering courses in Danish language, culture and history. The program gives children strong Danish roots and a greater understanding of everyday life and culture in Denmark.

Each year, three boarding schools in Denmark house 500 happy children ages 9 to 17, who spend nearly three weeks of their summer vacation learning about Danish language, culture and history at the Danish Summer School.

Mini Summer School: The Summer School program's little sister, is a one-week course in Denmark in July for children ages 6 to 9 and one or two of their parents and/or grandparents.

The Mini Summer School program focuses on Danish language and culture through field trips, and activities outside of the classroom. It allows families the opportunity to have fun and spend time together while giving participants a boost to their Danish skills and cultural knowledge. Read more here.
