Do you wish to learn Danish fast and efficiently? Or maybe you have a colleague who needs to get started learning a good and understable Danish? Then this course is for you!

FAQ

The price of your course depends on how big of a package and how much flexibility you would like to have. The bigger the package you choose, the more money you save per lesson. And if you pick a course with a fixed schedule, you’ll get a further reduction. Check out all my prices here.

It depends totally on your start level and the goal of your course, how much you would like to achieve.

If you are a complete beginner and wish to be able to start speaking Danish at work, it requires more lessons and takes longer than if you “only” wish to get by with the most basic in Danish.

To complete a CEF level, it often requires 30-40 lessons.

But again, it depends. Send me a message where you describe your start level and where you would like to be after your course, what you wish to achieve, and I would be happy to give you an estimate of how fast and how many lessons it would take.

I cannot do official tests such as PD3, DU3 module tests or StudieprĂžven.

But if you would like to be testet, for example at the end of your course to see if you actually learned what you needed to, I would be happy to make you a test. Some people also like to do a test at the end as a way of staying motivated to do the work along the way.

First of all, one lesson is 45 minutes. However, we always hold a minimum of two lessons (90 minutes) per session. If you wish a faster progression, you are free to choose to hold more lessons at the time, eg. three or four lessons.

Typically, I start a lesson by going through the homework, giving feedback and, if relevant, doing some kind of post-performance exercise to make sure you get the most out of what-ever topic we have been training.

From there, we move on to the topic of the day’s lesson, like for example presentation of yourself, your name(s), where you come from and what you do. Or maybe the lesson is about being able to talk in a simple Danish about your plans for the near future or what you did yesterday.

We start by covering the necessary grammar and pronunciation points, so that you, step by step, will be equipped to end the lesson with a more free dialogue, like a roleplay or a small presentation about the topic of the day.

Before we finish the lesson, we make a recap on what you have learned in today’s lesson and you’ll be assigned homework for the next lesson. Homework is a very important aspect of learning Danish. By working on your own between lessons, you’ll get the chance to work more into depth with what you’ve learned and consolidate new language, grammar and expressions.

As you see, we work always having a clear lesson goal, so that there is no doubt what exactly you are going to learn in the lessons and also so that you, when you leave the classroom, have a clear idea of what you have gotten out of today’s lesson – something relevant that you can go out and apply directly in your daily life.

On the lower levels, including beginner’s Danish, we typically use a text-/workbook covering language like grammar, reading exercises, listening, speaking and writing exercises that will give you a solid foundation you need to get a good start.

On beginner’s level, it is not ideal to tailor the material too much, as there are some basic stuff that needs to be covered. But if you have special needs or wishes, like if you wish to start using Danish in some specific situations of your everyday life, it is not a problem to add some extra exercises to the beginners’ material to help you in those situations where you would like to be able to get by in a basic Danish.

The lessons can take place at your workplace, at your private home or any other suitable location.

I teach in the whole Copenhagen and suburb area. Inside the borders of Copenhagen, my transport to and from the lessons is free of charge. While there might be an extra transport fee for lessons taking place outside Copenhagen.

Send me a message with a few words on where you wish your lessons to take place and I’ll give you more specific information.

Mondays I teach only in the afternoon. Tuesdays to Fridays I teach from morning to late afternoon.

Saturdays and Sundays I am not working.

Send me a message or call me to hear how my availability is right this moment and in the near future.

As soon as you have ordered your course, I’ll send you an invoice that you can pay either through a bank transfer or via MobilePay.

I take payment in one or two installments. See next FAQ for more info 🙂

Yep. I accept payment either the full amount at once or in two installments.

You can choose to pay everything at once before course start, or in two installments: one installment before course start and the second midways – so that the lessons are always paid in advance.

My cancelation policy is very flexible as I know that you probably have a busy (work) life and important meetings can suddenly come up. If you are unable to attend lessons one day, you are free to cancel or reschedule up to 24 hours in advance.

If you cancel with less than 24 hours in advance, the lessons will be lost.

Note! This cancelation policy only applies to courses with a flexible schedule.

If you cancel your course 14 days or more before course start, you’ll get a full refund.

If you cancel 13 days to 1 day before course start, you’ll get 75 % of the paid course price if you have paid the full amount. If you have paid the first of two installments (50 % of the full course amount), you’ll get a refund of 50 % of the first installment (25 % of the full amount).

If you cancel after course start, you’ll get a 50 % refund of the remaining, paid lessons.

The course can be canceled any time by the instructor. The money for the remaining paid lessons will be refunded to the client.

Testimonials

Hear what some of my happy students say about my lessons:

I previously tried lessons at a school, but it was 2.5 hours twice a week, and with all the homework on top it took up too much of my time. I often missed classes when I had other arrangements or work and it was hard to catch up.
I wanted to continue making progress in learning Danish without having to attend a school.
It’s quite an expensive way to learn, with a private tutor. But with an initial trial lesson it helped me realise that it was worth signing up for some lessons.
Sigga is a kind, patient and attentive teacher and I really like how much the lessons feel like they fit my pace of learning.
I recommend Sigga if you are looking for professionalism and flexibility.
