Five quick facts about learning Danish for free in Denmark

Do I have the right to free Danish lessons? How do I start language school? And can I learn Danish in the same Danish class with my friends? It is quite a jungle to figure out the rules about the right to free Danish lessons - we have tried to make it simple for you with these five facts: 

  1. YOU CAN HAVE FREE LESSONS. If you have come to Denmark to study, you have a right to learn Danish at a language school (sprogskole or sprogcenter in Danish) - or eg Danish lessons at the university campus or online. It is called the right to The certified Danish Language Education (Danskuddannelsen).
  2. YOU NEED A REFERRAL. The Danish lessons are free provided you have a referral from your local municipality (kommune). If you have not received a referral in your e-Boks, you can contact the kommune to get it.
  3. WE NEED TO PLACE YOU ON A SUITABLE LEVEL. The law about The certified Danish Language Education (Danskuddannelsen) describes, that we as a language center are obliged to initially carry out an assessment test to ensure that you enroll at the right level. This means that we cannot automatically guarantee, that you will be in the same class as your friend, as it depends on your level of education from your home country and on your language skills documented in our assessment test. 
  4. YOU HAVE TO PAY A DEPOSIT. To ensure a commitment from internationals in Denmark to learning Danish and to make an effort in class, the Danish government has decided, that before starting at the language center, you must pay a deposit of 2000 DKK to the language center. The language center will provide you with further information about how to get your deposit refunded. You can pay here. 
  5. WANT TO JOIN? WE WILL GUIDE YOU. To start Danish classes, simply fill out the form above or call us at 30 85 23 62 and we will guide you through the process. And within a few days, you will be ready to start classes.
