Learn Danish in Copenhagen
At Speak we teach students from all around the globe. We offer Danish courses for expats at all levels, so if you are looking to learn Danish, why not swing by one of our departments in and around Copenhagen? No matter your skills or background, we have a suitable Danish course for you. Our courses vary from online options to intensive classroom courses and tailored programs for professionals and students.
Is it hard to learn Danish?
Learning Danish is neither hard nor easy. But if you want to learn Danish, you should know that it won’t cut without lots of practice. No one expects you to pick up a new language overnight or have a perfect pronunciation on the first go. Danish is infamously known for some strange words and phrases, like “rødgrød med fløde”, but it is not necessarily harder or weirder than other languages. It might just be more or less similar to your own language. Therefore, you should be patient with yourself, if you want to learn Danish—don’t give up, if it feels like you are moving too slow.
How can I learn Danish fast?
We strongly encourage all our students to practice their Danish skills outside the classroom, and living in Copenhagen or elsewhere in Denmark is a very good starting point, if you want to learn Danish fast. You should not be afraid to talk to the cashier in the grocery store or chat with the person next to you on the bus or at the café. By keeping the conversation going, you will learn new words, have a better chance of remembering the ones you learned at class and just generally get the language under your skin faster. Insist on your local friends to speak Danish to you. Mistakes are not defeats, they will only make you better. Another good advice is to follow the news in Danish. Buy today’s newspaper, watch the local TV station and listen to the radio. This will not only help you learning Danish faster—it also makes the process more fun and enjoyable.
