Learn Danish with IDA

Study Danish together with peers in classes tailored to your industry and worklife.

IDA, The Danish Engineering Society, will continue to offer Danish classes to its international members in cooperation with Copenhagen Language Center. We are now expanding with more levels to accommodate the needs of both beginners and more practiced Danish learners.

You will receive qualified instruction adapted to your industry and job functions. The courses are suited for busy professionals. We use a blended learning method with only one weekly class combined with online material for flexible self-study.

We will offer three courses in the spring

The level indicators (A1-C2) refer to the common European language levels (CEFR). Find the definition of each level here.

  1. Beginner Online Course (A1):
    For members of IDA living outside of the Capital Region, we offer an online course. The online course has the same amount of lessons as the regular course. In addition to the online classes, we provide digital materials for self-study. This course is suitable for you if you are an absolut beginner.
  2. Elementary course (A2)
    The elementary course picks up, where the starter course left off. Thus, the course is suited for those who know very basic Danish and wish to improve their skills. The focus is still primarily on oral skills, but we add some grammar and basic writing.
  3. Intermediate Speaking Course (B1)
    For all who are beyond the elementary level, we have designed a course aimed at improving and maintaining conversation and pronunciation skills to help you make better use of your Danish at work and when socializing.
