The next crash course for beginners is scheduled for March 25 to April 5, all 10 days from 1 to 4 PM at AU International Center. Afternoon/evening classes twice a week at AU campus are scheduled to start around the same time - or as soon as we have enough participants (either at 4.15 or 6.00 PM). Sign up at as soon as possible (for crash course, sign up by March 11). 

Danish Education in the module system at AU Campus

Lærdansk no longer has FVU groups at AU Campus. Instead, we offer Danish classes in the module system (Danskuddannelse 3) at AU campus as well as alternative beginner classes called Ready Steady 1 and 2. 

Price of a beginner course

You can take beginner courses (e.g. the crash course) as Module 1 or as Ready Steady 1. The main difference is that Ready Steady gives you a fixed amount of lessons whereas in Module 1 you can continue on your module until you are ready to pass the module test. Sign up before March 8 to get the Ready Steady course for the current low price of 1200 kr. It will rise to 1500 kr. Danish in the module system costs 2000 kr. per module plus a deposit of 1250 kr. After Ready Steady 1, you will most likely be able to start on module 2 if you want to change to the module system. Or you can proceed with Ready Steady 2. 

Free FVU Danish courses

We have FVU courses at Lærdansk premises at Paludan Müllers Vej at various schedules (mornings, afternoons, evenings, Saturdays) for those who are in the target group for FVU and who are particularly interested in improving their reading and writing skills in Danish. Enrolling in FVU requires an oral proficiency level of at least A2+ (CEFR) and a long-term perspective in Denmark. If you are interested, the first step is an interview and screening at Lærdansk to assess your level and whether you are in the target group for FVU.

New courses 

New courses by Lærdansk include

  1. ”Speaking Danish” at various levels with a focus on everyday spoken language, conversations about work, news, society and other topics that the group finds relevant.
  2. ”Pronunciation course” focusing specifically on Danish pronunciation.
  3. ”Danish for teaching” focusing on the spoken language needed when teaching a class in Danish.

These courses start as soon as we have enough registrations, so please help us by spreading the word.

Lærdansk also offers one-on-one courses, online courses and even pre-arrival courses for staff and partners prior to arrival in Denmark.
