Text: Speak School of Danish
Speak – School of Danish offers intensive Danish language summer courses in July 2020.
No matter if you are new to Denmark or not, the summer courses are an excellent opportunity to boost your Danish skills considerably in only two to three weeks.
What to expect during your course
Teaching is focused around language and vocabulary that you need in Denmark. The first few modules focus primarily on this aspect of the language. Further down the course, we concentrate on written Danish and help you learn proper pronunciation, which is a crucial priority in all course modules.
The summer courses are class-based, and as you meet in class every day, you work extensively with individual challenges and requests that pop up in the class. You’ll be working individually and in smaller groups adjusted to your level of Danish.
The courses are part of the official Danish Language Education System (see graph). This means that you can build on your Danish skills, module by module and conclude your studies with a state-approved examination.
If you participate for three weeks, you will be able to complete module 1 or 2. If you join for two weeks, you will be able to complete half of module 1, 2, 3 or 4.
To complete a module, you have to take the required module exam, and if you pass the module, you can proceed to the next one. If you participate in the first part of a module, you can move to the second part of the module (no test involved). We offer regular language courses at all levels from August in one of our departments in Hellerup, Lyngby Frederiksberg or DTU.
"Language is not a genetic gift, it is a social gift. Learning a new language is becoming a member of the club – the community of speakers of that language." - Frank Smith
The summer courses are more than just classroom teaching. Once a week we arrange an excursion for all summer course participants regardless of their level to different places. We might go to Christiania, visit the canals of Copenhagen, or even an exciting museum. Participation is optional but highly recommended to form social connections with your classmates and see a bit of the city at the same time.
