Start a Danish A1 beginner course – and use work-related Danish right from the word go.
The course is specially designed for staff at the University of Copenhagen, which means that participants learn work-related Danish right from the very beginning. In addition to topics relevant to working at the university, the course also focuses on key everyday language that can be used both at work and outside work. Course participants learn to use simple but idiomatic phrases for both writing and speaking Danish, i.e. the basic structures for interacting successfully in Danish.
The emphasis is on participants learning Danish in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, and the teaching is flexibly organized, so there is no problem if participants need to, for example, attend a conference during the course.
The course also equips participants to continue learning Danish on the Beginner A2 course.
- A work-related Danish course tailored to employees at the university

Get ready for PD3 – and pass your Prøve i Dansk 3 !

Based on the requirements and language goals set for the exam, participants work with the different types of assignments in the exam: reading, writing and speaking. The pace of the course is fairly fast, and participants are expected to do individual exercises during the teaching-free weeks and attend all sessions in class.

CIP's tailor-made language courses are aimed at both administrative and academic staff. The courses are arranged for closed groups, for example for a small group of people working within the same research or administrative area in one particular section, department or faculty. The courses are tailor-made to suit the professional requirements, language abilities and needs of the participants, as well as their teaching, publication and work situation in general.
If you and your colleagues are interested in a tailor-made course, CIP can arrange a meeting with your department to discuss how to best suit your needs and wishes.
All our tailor-made courses are based on preliminary needs analyses in order to establish precise participant needs, goals and proficiency level.
