The course is designed for native speakers of Swedish or Norwegian enrolled in university level education who want a Danish language course tailored to their specific needs.

Norwegians and Swedes sometimes face language-related challenges that may create barriers at work or at university. Those barriers are addressed in this course.

In the Danish for Scandinavians course, we focus on pronunciation, conversation and the differences between Danish and Norwegian or Danish and Swedish in the areas of grammar and sound. You will learn how to write Danish, enabling you to compose anything from emails to brief essays on current events.

We pay special attention to verbal communication in the classroom.

Classroom lessons are offered one evening a week. The lessons are geared at a high level in line with your existing linguistic skills, and you will experience rapid progress in your Danish skills.

As a student enrolled at IA Sprog you may supplement your attendance in class by practicing online at any time – even on your phone while commuting. Our online learning platform offers lots of interactive exercises in grammar, pronunciation, reading and listening comprehension. In addition, the online platform enables you to get feedback on your written assignments.

Outside the classroom, you are welcome to use our IT labs. Wi-Fi is free throughout the premises.  

In order to sign up for the course, you must have a Danish government-issued CPR number and reside or work in Denmark. The municipality in which you live must approve your attendance.

From July 1, 2017 new students are required to pay a deposit of DKK1,250 when registering for a Danish course. The deposit must be paid before you can start Danish classes. After completing a module, the amount is automatically – with the student’s permission – transferred to the next module. The amount will be returned, if you stop or take a break from the course at the language school.

IA Sprog offers free Danish language courses for foreigners. Read more about who can attend our free Danish courses.
