Danish Courses 2 x a week
Who can apply the courses?
Speak provides intensive Danish language courses at all levels. Choose between daytime and evening time.
Our Danish language courses are for all foreign residents above the age of 18 who have a civil registration number and are entitled to Danish education.
“The teaching is based on us and the language we need in our everyday lives. We don’t just have a fixed curriculum. The teachers ask about the situations, where we need to speak Danish. It is very motivating.”

Learn Danish quickly
At Speak, you will learn to speak Danish quickly to help you do better at work, in your studies and in your day-to-day life. The teaching is based on the language and vocabulary that you need in Denmark. The first few modules focus particularly on teaching you to speak Danish. Later, we will also concentrate on the written language. Teaching you good pronunciation is a key priority in all course modules.
We run many classes at all levels both during the day and in the evening. This means that Speak will always be able to offer you lessons that suit your needs and abilities.
Danish Language 1, 2 and 3
Our courses are divided into three levels: Danish Language 1, Danish Language 2 and Danish Language 3. Each course consists of six modules, and at the end of every module, you may sit a module examination.
Danish language examinations
You can finish any of our Danish Language courses by sitting an official examination. The examination is free of charge if you participate in the final module. Read more on the examinations and what they provide access to here.
