Danish in the past – and now

The construction of the Copenhagen Metro continues and so does the work with looking for relics from the exposed soil underneath the old city. A small group of Irish and English archaeologists has been assigned to the excavations and some of them have even used a part of their time above-ground to learn the Danish language!

Three of the archaeologist have come so far with their Danish course that they recently finished it with a Danish Language Level 3-exam! Here they are – Ed, Rachel and John – together with their teachers, Kirsten Toft and Alex Zichau. It was the IA SPROG department IA Business that created contact to the Copenhagen Metro and the Museum of Copenhagen where the archaeologists are affiliated to and where they had their first Danish lessons with teacher Kirsten Toft. Later on the group moved to IA SPROG’s premises at Nørrebro.
