FVU Reading Level 1

For who?

FVU stands for Forberedende Voksenundervisning (Preparatory Adult Education). FVU is a free supplement to you who would like to become better at reading, writing and spelling. Our FVU courses are developed to help you do better at work, in your studies and in your day-to-day life.

FVU is for everybody above the age of 18 who has a civil registration number and who would like to improve their Danish reading and writing skills.

What is FVU Reading Level 1?

At FVU Reading Level 1, we will train you in oral Danish to help you become better at reading and writing Danish. We will teach you the relationship between sounds and writing, so it will be easier for you to hear how words are spelt.

We will be working with reading techniques, so you will become better at understanding what you are reading.

In writing, we will teach you to write texts that you will need in your everyday life, such as e-mails.

The course will also prepare you for FVU Reading, Level 2.
