Summer School: Danish Language Course – cancelled

We regret to inform you, that the University of Copenhagen has decided to cancel the pre-semester Danish Language Course taking place from 3 to 25 August in the summer 2020.

Due to the global emergency with Covid19, the University of Copenhagen has decided, that hosting such a large event, taking place over several weeks for hundreds of international students, simply are too dangerous for you and for our teachers.

The decision has been made in line with the Danish government suspension of all major events until the beginning of September 2020.

We are currently monitoring the situation regarding the Danish Language Semester Course in the fall of 2020, and will update our website, as soon as we have news about that.   

We appreciate your understanding in the matter, and we hope that you will apply again in the summer of 2021.

Three weeks of Danish language summer school

The Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics is offering a 3-week intensive Danish language summer course. The courses consist of classes in the morning and an optional cultural activities programme in the afternoon.

The courses in Danish as a Foreign Language for international students at the University of Copenhagen consist of intensive language instruction classes. Danish is studied and taught as a foreign language for communicative as well as academic purposes.

In accordance with a discursive view of language and a primarily cognitive view of language acquisition, the courses integrate theoretical knowledge of lexicon, grammar and phonology in the process of developing communicative competences in modern Danish, spoken and written.
