FVU Start

For who?

FVU stands for Forberedende Voksenundervisning (Preparatory Adult Education). FVU is a free supplement to Danish Education for 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. You must be able to talk and understand Danish, in order to participate in the course.

What is FVU Start?

At FVU Start, we will train you in oral Danish to help you become better at speaking and understanding Danish, and we will teach you to write and read short messages, such as e-mails.
The course will also prepare you for FVU Reading, Level 1.
