Learn Danish your way

We are sorry to inform you that we are unable to continue the free Danish classes at AU in the FVU concept. However, you can still learn Danish at your workplace, at the language school or online - whenever it suits you.

Lærdansk has a focus on everyday language, and you will learn words and phrases that are immediately applicable to your life in Denmark, both at work and in your free time. You can choose between the following courses:
