Do you want to learn Danish in the daytime, in the evening, on the weekend – or online, regardless of time or place?

At Denmark’s largest language centre, IA Sprog in Copenhagen, you can attend quality courses in Danish regardless of your background and your needs. The courses are mostly free of charge – your municipality will fund them.
Why learn Danish?
The language is the key to Danish society. Danish is spoken in public everywhere, in the workplace, in education, training and day care facilities. There are many good reasons why you as a foreigner should learn Danish. Here are four major ones:
- It is easier to get by in your everyday life.
- It is easier to get a job.
- It is easier to make friends and lead an even more interesting life.
- It is often a prerequisite for obtaining a long-term residency permit in Denmark.
The best way to learn Danish is by combining a Danish language course with practice outside of school. That is why IA Sprog is the right place to start for you.

Labour Market Oriented Danish is for those recently arrived in Denmark who have never learned any Danish before. The course targets everyday situations – at work, in school, in public and at home.
Once you have completed the Labour Market Oriented Danish course, you can learn more Danish in one of IA Sprog’s courses for continuing students, Danish Language Course 1, 2 or 3:
For people who have only had a few years of schooling and perhaps do not know the Latin alphabet. Classes are taught in small groups and are tailored to suit your specific needs.
For people who have had medium-length schooling or education in their home country. The course will focus on your everyday life, your work – or the education or training you may be enrolled in.
For people who already have a high level of education. The course is tailored to suit your needs, and IT is an essential tool. Danish Language Course 3 is available in many forms with possibilities varying depending on your specific need for flexibility or a speedy approach.
FVU (Preparatory Adult Education) is a free offer to all adults in Denmark who wish to improve their Danish reading and writing skills. Are you taking a Danish language course?
