How does the online course work?

You will be part of a small group of participants, where some will participate physically on-site and others will be online. It is thus a kind of hybrid class. You can also choose to be online for some time, and then switch to attend physically later. In that way, it is a very flexible course structure.

You will follow the teaching through a screen placed in the classroom, so you and your teacher can see each other. You will of course be included in the teaching on the same terms as the other course participants.

One week before the course start you will receive a link to the internet portal where we will meet you. You also get access to the course material through our portal, where you can download both booklets and sound files and thereby prepare yourself between each class. The course at the A1 level is held in English until a basic level of Danish is established.

How long does it take to learn Danish?

After the first course you are fully equipped to pass the Test in Danish at A1-level that is needed for family reunification. You can then talk about yourself, your personal data, your family, your objects and their prices, your languages, your job, times and dates and your holiday and weekend plans. When you pass our next course, Direkte dansk 2, you are also able to talk about things such as your home and furniture, shopping, meals and groceries, school, work, leisure and the weather.

When you have finished our A1 course, you can sign up for the next levels, A2-C1. At the end of each course we give you a course certificate.

Our unique methods of teaching ensures a rapid and efficient progression and not least, an understandable pronunciation!

What does it require?

Our courses are for individuals who are eager to work intensively to learn the language. We expect that you have at least 12 years of schooling and you are willing to do 2-4 hours of homework between classes. As we use English as a mutual language platform until we have established your Danish, it is important that you both speak and understand English.


“Great course, taught me a much larger vocabulary than the previous school I have used in Denmark”

Heidi Baltzer Ginsborg

“I love everything about Danskbureauet. From kind people responding quickly all my emails, with questions about the course, to our amazing teacher, book and the structure of the course, its intensity and a fact we were only 8 students at class. I cannot imagine learning so much if we were 20 students in class like they are in other language schools. Also I really appreciated we didn’t play games and we didn’t waste time on “talk to your classmate and give each other feedback” exercises. All the feedback was coming straightly from our teacher, which was great. Time was always flying during our classes, even though they were actually long. I can see a progress and I would love to continue with Danskbureauet if my schedule allows it in the future.”

Veronika Mulasikova

“I highly recommend Danskbureauet for those that are awaiting their eligibility to take government-funded courses or those that are not eligible. The course is well-designed, with material that has you using Danish in many different directions– reading Danish conversations, memorising and performing dialogues, grammar exercises, writing Danish, and conversation practice. A solid foundation in Danish can be achieved in a very short period of time at Danskbureauet.”
