Students at Aalborg University. Learn danish while studying in Denmark.

Danish at the university
Learn Danish at your educational institution

Learn Danish while attending an academic or professional educational institution where IA Sprog provides language lessons for students and staff. The lessons take place at the institution you attend and at times that suit your schedule; the goal is to help you incorporate Danish language lessons into your overall academic activities and your work, if you are employed.

Classes are held once a week, and you are also welcome to participate in workshops on campus. In addition, you will have access to the largest online learning platform in Denmark.

The lessons programme adheres to the goals and structure of Labour Market Oriented Danish course and Danish Language Course 3. You start by taking a 250-hour course (Labour Market Oriented Danish) over a 3-6 month period. Then you may continue on to Danish Language Course 3 culminating in the Danish Language Exam 3.

The weekly class focuses on verbal communication, pronunciation and grammar. You will quickly acquire basic Danish language skills to navigate at university and at work. Using brief, authentic texts, you will learn about Danish society and culture, including workplace culture. In addition, you will learn how to read and write brief emails.

If you continue on to Danish Language Course 3, you will receive in-depth lessons in Danish language and society that will allow you to participate in discussions about current events both in person and in writing.
