Danish for work – What You’ll Get

Imagine yourself speaking to your colleagues and clients about work – and informal stuff – in a clear and spontaneous Danish…

Whether you are a beginner and starting from scratch or you already have acquired a certain level of Danish – the scenario described above is totally possible!

With the right training, you could start performing your job in Danish – without the constant insecurity and lack of confidence.

Even though the Danes are really good at English and even though your official company language may even be English, it is just really important, as a foreign professional working in Denmark, to know Danish. At least some basics. Whole or parts of meetings take place in Danish, some clients may prefer to communicate in Danish, informal small-talk with your are in Danish, etc.

On this course, tailored just for you, you’ll learn the necessary language, relevant to your daily life at work, so you’ll be able to participate in meetings, hold telephone conversations and talk about vacation plans over lunch with your colleagues – or what-ever might be meaningful to you – in a clear and precise Danish.

After the course, you’ll have developed and improved your skills to both understand Danish but also to participate actively in Danish in typical daily work situations.

FAQ

It depends on how big of a package and how much flexibility you are after. You’ll save money per lesson by choosing a bigger package and also if you book a course with a fixed schedule. Learn more about the prices here.

It depends completely on your level to begin with and your goal with the course.

Many courses are around 30 lessons. If you choose to hold two lessons per session – that’s 90 minutes – it will be 15 sessions in total. With this number of lessons, it is usually possible to see results.

How big or small of a package that would be most suitable for you, depends, as I said, on your what you would like to achieve.

Call or write me and I will give you a qualified assessment of how long I think it would take you to reach your goal and how many lessons it would require.

I cannot give official tests like PD3, DU3 module tests or Studieprøven.

But if you would like to finish the course with a test to see if you have learned what you wanted to, I would be happy to make a test based on what we have covered during the course.

One lesson is 45 minutes and I usually teach two lessons per session (90 minutes). However, you are free to schedule more lessons per session if you wish a more intensive course and a faster progression.

The lessons typically start with going through the homework. You’ll get feedback and a chance to practice the new language one more time.

After that, we move on to the topic of today’s lesson, which could be ordering at the cafe, small-talk over lunch with your colleagues or calling your doctor to make an appointment.

We start by covering the necessary grammar and pronunciation points and then, step by step, through some exercises, we’ll equip you to be able to hold a more free and spontaneous dialogue at the end of the class about today’s topic. That could through small roleplays, presentations, etc.

Before we finish, we’ll do a recap on what you have learned in today’s lesson and you’ll be assigned homework for your next lessons so that you can work more in depth with what you’ve just learned – and really consolidate your newly acquired knowledge.

As you see, the lessons are structured around a clear lesson goal, a goal that is always relevant to your daily life. When you leave from class, you’ll have a clear idea of what exactly you have gotten out of each lesson – and you’ll be able to go directly out of the classroom and use what you’ve learned in real life.

It depends on the course and what exactly you wish to get out of the course.

For a conversation course, we’ll typically use a mix of textbook and other written material as well as audio material (like radio programs or podcasts) and TV programs for improving your listening skills and vocabulary, and we’ll probably also do some selected grammar and pronunciation exercises.

If you wish to improve your speaking skills for work, it would be helpful to use your own material, like brochures from your company, website texts, presentations, reports or other things that we can use to practice the kind of language you want to be able to speak with confidence.

The lessons can take place at your work place or at your house.

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

Yes. I accept payments in two installments: first installment before course start and the second installment halfways – so that lessons are always prepaid.

For courses with a flexible schedule, my cancellation policy is quite flexible as I know that you have a busy (work) life and important meetings can suddenly appear.

If you are unable to attend class, you are free to cancel or reschedule up to 24 hours before lesson start.

If you cancel less than 24 hours before, the lessons will be lost.

Courses with a fixed schedule cannot be cancelled or rescheduled.

If you cancel 7 days or more before course start, you’ll get a full refund.

If you cancel 6 days to 1 day before course start, you’ll get a 75 % refund of the paid course price if you paid full price. If you are paying in installments and have paid the first installment (50 % of the total course price), you’ll get a refund of 50 % of the first installment.

If you cancel after course start, there is no refund.

The course can be cancelled any time by the instructor. The money for any paid the lessons not yet held will be refunded to the client.

Testimonial

Hear what one of my current clients says about my courses:

Before I signed up for my course with Sigga, I was trying to solve some structural gaps in my danish that needed to be fixed in order to go further in the language and feeling more confident in myself when talking danish with other persons and also improve my pronunciation,

Sigga is a very good teacher, commited to helping. She’s calm and with a good analytical view of the needs of the student. She adjusts the exercises and the classes to me.

I recommend Sigga to others because with her I am able to develop my danish language in a faster and consistent way that allows me to talk with my colleagues at work and being able to be understood.
