Danish language education

If you are new to Denmark, you are eligible for Danish language education. At Give-Grindsted Uddannelsescenter, we make sure you are offered the right education programme to match your needs – whether it is DU1, DU2, or DU3.

Target groups

Adult foreigners who have just arrived in Denmark, are staying here permanently, and have a residence permit are eligible for Danish language education. If this does not apply to you, please contact us for information on other options.

Get a good start

Before you start learning Danish at GGUC, we invite you in for a short interview to establish which of the three Danish language education programmes is right for you and on which module you should start. Immediately after this interview, you can start attending classes. GGUC provides you with all relevant information and guidance regarding your Danish language education programme, including time frames for the various modules, module testing, exams, etc.

Where and when?

You can learn Danish at GGUC’s premises in either Billund, Give, or Grindsted, and we offer morning, afternoon and evening classes. Please contact one of our schools for further information.

User fees, deposit, and voucher system for self-supporting participants

If you are a self-supporting citizen, you will be charged a user fee of DKK 2,000 pr. module, though your municipality still covers the main part of the module fee. Refugees and other citizens covered by the Danish Integration Act are still entitled to free Danish language education under the Danish Education Act. The payment covers one module in one of the three state-authorised Danish language education programmes including module testing or examination at a level related to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Furthermore, a deposit of DKK 1,250 must be paid before you start attending classes. The full amount of the deposit will be returned to you when you complete your module or Danish language education programme.

Self-supporting citizens are allocated a number of vouchers corresponding to the number of modules of the Danish education programme they are following. The vouchers are subject to the below time frames:

Time frames

Module/voucher 1: 4 months

Module/voucher 2: 5 months

Module/voucher 3: 7 months

Module/voucher 4: 8 months

Module/voucher 5: 9 months

Module/voucher 6: 9 months

 

Online Danish

Would you like to learn Danish from home?

If you wish to learn Danish, but cannot attend traditional classes, you can sign up for a self-study course. We will send you exercises, give you online feedback, and once a month give you the opportunity to meet your teacher. The course includes listening, reading, writing, speaking and grammar.

We expect you to be:

  •  motivated
  •  able to work independently for at least 3 hours a week
  • able to work with a computer.

”Udtalen på dansk er udfordrende. At lære dansk er svært, men nødvendigt. Det giver selvtillid når man kan snakke dansk. Undervisningen er tilpasset til alle, så alle kan være med. Sprogskolen er et sted hvor der skabes venskaber.”

”Vi har det meget sjovt i timerne. Vi lærer meget om dansk kultur og det dansk arbejdsmarked. Lærerne er dejlige og hjælpsomme. Vi lærer at snakke, skrive, lytte og læse på dansk – det er meget vigtig i forhold til vores fremtid.”

”Vi har et godt samarbejde imellem kammerater og lærere. Det er sjovt, når vi fejrer en der har fødselsdag. Vi synger, spiser kage og får gratis kaffe eller chokolade. Her skabes gode venskaber. Man lærer meget mere end sproget fx kultur, og det hjælper at integrere dig.”

”Vi får mange spændende oplysninger om Danmark og danske traditioner. Vi har dejlige lærere. Skolen har en vidunderlig atmosfære, ikke mindst når der undervises.”
