At Hellerup Language Centre, we strive to provide you with the most inspiring Danish education. We want you to learn the language as fast as possible, and at the same time, we try to make it a great experience. Pronunciation is part of the backbone of learning Danish. Therefore, we focus on the Danish sounds from the very beginning both in class and in our language labs. We do our best to adapt Danish teaching to every single student and background.

We teach Danish to both beginners and advanced students. Our Danish courses are tailored towards your qualifications. We start with the language you need in your everyday life, for example at work, at school/university and other places that you interact with on a daily basis. If you are looking for a job, we can help with that too.

Before you can start, you need to call us at phone 3946 3050 to book an appointment with one of our language counselors. Together, we will find a Danish course that fits your qualifications and the course content of your choice.

About the courses
You start in one of the 3 Danish Educations (Danskuddannelser). Each Danish Education is divided into modules, which are concluded with a module test. When you have passed a module test, you can proceed to the next module. The last modules are concluded with an official Danish Examination.

Danish Eucation 3 is for students with at least 12 years of school and a solid understanding of English
Danish Education 2 is for students with 8 to 10 years of school
Danish Education 1 is for students who are unfamiliar with the Latin alphabet and have trouble reading and writing in their own language.

You can start your course if you are at least 18 years of age and have a Danish civil registration number (CPR)
If you are an independent student you must pay a tuition fee and a deposit (except for au pairs). Furthermore, you must complete your Danish education under the conditions of the “klippekort” (a time-unit system). The klippekort implies that you have a limited time period to complete your modules and Danish education.

If you are a refugee or have family reunification status, you are not subjected to the tuition fee, deposit and klippekort rules. As a rule, you have to complete your Danish Education within 5 years.
