When you choose our Flex Danish course, you only need to come to class once a week, as blended learning creates a natural flow between classroom teaching and online activities.
In the classroom, there will be focus on oral communication with an emphasis on pronunciation. Online, with help from a clear curriculum, you will be able to work with the language both alone and together with others. This you can do when it fits best into your everyday life. You should expect 3-4 hours of preparation time.
The 5 levels of “Flex” correspond to levels A1-B2 according to CEFR, so that after Flex 5, you will be ready to sign up for PD3.
Flex 1 – You learn to present yourself and tell about your life in Copenhagen. There is emphasis on the spoken language, but you also work a little on writing.
Flex 2 – You learn, among other things, to talk about the day’s activities, about food and eating habits, and about learning a new language. You learn to express what you think is good and bad. Moreover, you learn to write a short personal email.
Flex 3 – You learn, among other things, to talk about searching for a job, about volunteer work, as well as about work and study environments. You expand your vocabulary and increase your knowledge of Danish society. You learn to write a longer personal email.
Flex 4 – You learn to talk about climate and ecology, art and culture in Denmark, equality at home and in the workplace, and much more. You learn to create coherence in texts and to argue orally and in writing in Danish. And you learn to write a letter a local newspaper or the like.
Flex 5 – You work mainly with topics about Danish society and the debate in the Danish media. You learn to write a short essay based on some statistical material or some views. You continue to work on creating coherence in texts and argumentation. And you learn to express views, explain reasoning and to discuss, both orally and in writing, for and against an opinion.
To proceed to the next level, you must take a shorter written test (except for Flex 1) and make at least one oral presentation to be approved by the teacher.
