FVU Reading Level 4

For who?

FVU stands for Forberedende Voksenundervisning (Preparatory Adult Education). FVU is a free supplement to you if you are learning Danish and 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 4?

At FVU Reading Level 4, we will be reading academic texts and specialist literature that will prepare you for a job or an education programme. We will teach you to read specialist literature, and you will be required, among other things, to write a long essay. Level 4 is the highest level in the FVU system.

You will expand your vocabulary by working with the specialist terms that characterise your field of expertise, and we focus on teaching you to spell correctly, including unusual or specialist terms.

You will be asked to read specialist literature that is relevant to your education programme, and you will learn to write texts with specialist contents and to use diagrams and tables in your work. In addition, we will help you to achieve cohesion in the texts that you write.
