The Scandinavian School offers Danish courses at several different skill levels. Each course costs $350 and consists of 8 weekly, hour and a half lessons. Students must also purchase course materials, which will cost approximately $40 for the beginner courses and $70 for the intermediate courses. The materials can be used for multiple courses.

All sales are final. Students can be transferred between different levels if needed, but refunds are not offered.

Each year we offer four sessions of courses: two in the spring and two in the fall. You may only sign up for one course per semester (8 classes) at a time.

Unsure which course is right for you? Contact Cultural Director Pia Persson at ppersson@scandinavianschool.org with questions. 

The Classes

Classes are small (typically around 8 students) which gives us lots of time for individual attention. Different courses use different textbooks, and we create a fun and engaging curriculum by including materials such as newspaper and magazine articles, music and song texts, picture collages, as well as video and audio clips.
