Danish Language Schools

There are lots of Danish Language schools including several online ones and even some great home study courses.  Up til 2018, Danish classes were free to expats, yet the government stopped that program since it was too costly. The program has now been reintroduced in 2020, yet with some restrictions.  Students that qualify, will have to pay a refundable 2000kr deposit to take a course. In order to get their money back, they have to finish the course in a certain time, keep absentism to a minimun and pass the test. Depending on how well they comply with those rules will reflect how much of their deposit they get back. 

Which school or course you choose will depend on several factors. Not all schools will offer the free course option, yet most are trying to compete with reasonable prices. 

You should first talk with your kommune about getting the free course, since so many of them either have their own Danish language schools or work with etablished schools. If you do not have that option or can afford the deposit, you can take the next option and contact a local language school known as a "sprogcenter" or "sprogskole".

How to find the right Language School!

 In order to get the right Danish language schools for you, check out their websites and also look for personal reviews.You can check out trustpilot.dk and see if there have been complaints and accolades.   Here are some simple questions you can ask to narrow down your choices.

  1. Does the cost of the course include everything I need to succeed? Are books extra? Handouts? Do I have to pay extra for online access or programs?  Dictionaries?  Find out all extra costs that may apply.
  2. Does the school test you before assigning you a class, so that your experience fits into the best curriculum and level.   Myabe you can read Danish, but speaking is harder. Maybe you got a great ear for languages, but spelling is harder.
  3. What experience do your teachers have? Some schools hiring temps, out of work teachers, sometime people brand new to teaching, while others have years of experience in teaching languages.
  4. What type of testing does the school do? After each level, you and your classmates should have a standard test that shows that everyone is clear to move on. If 1 or 2 people are not ready and they move one with the same class, it can slow down your progress.  The is CEFR test that should be used to control this.
  5. Ask if you can talk to former students about their experience or search on facebook or other social media sites for people who may have taken the course. What was their experience.

Below are some of the best known danish language schools. Do your own research to find out which one works bet for you.  Remember staff and ownership change a lot, so up to date information is the best way to find a good school.

List of Danish Language Schools

Danish Language Schools like LærDansk, have offices all over the country, so look for a location close to you. They often work with kommunes to help expats learn Danish, so I would suggest you contact them first. Same goes with LOF and VUC skoles, which are everywhere.  

And here are those Danish Language schools. In alphabetical order by region. If I miss some and you wish to have it listed, just email me and will update the page.

Midland Jutland Language Schools

You will notice that many of the schools have the same website, since they run Danish language schools in different communities. You only need to apply to the main office and they will help you find which school location is best for you. You may live in one kommune and work in another one and it would be better to attend the school close to work rather than home.
