Danish is spoken by 6 million people across Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. The bonus with learning Danish is that you automatically become proficient in Norwegian and Swedish, which are largely mutually intelligible. The primary difference between these languages is pronunciation. If you learn Danish you will have the benefit of being able to understand three languages for the effort of one! Take one of our evening Danish courses and you will be able to speak the language of Europe’s oldest monarchy, understand the original works of Hans Christian Anderson and appreciate modern design. All of these factors are extremely important to the Danes and their sense of national identity.
Over 10 weeks of lessons you will focus on pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar through relevant Danish cultural contexts. There is an emphasis on communication and both pair and group work are encouraged in the classes.
