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 Act on Danish Language Courses for adult foreigners and Danish Language Course 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 intermediate/ advanced level, 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.

Street name with a little feather

A Sprog is located on Vibevej in Copenhagen. Some might thing that the street was named after the good vibes here, but actually the ’vibe’ is a specifically Danish bird.
