EVERY SUMMER International People’s College welcome students from all over the world for an intensive three-week course combining Danish language instruction on all levels, workshops, lectures, excursions and lots of fun – it’s all about Denmark!

What is the Danish Course all about?

It is an intensive Danish Course tailored for small groups (8-12 students) at all levels. Daily classes totaling 56 lessons during the three weeks. You will also get an invaluable insight into the specifics of Danish culture and society introduced via lectures, films, literature and local excursions. Lectures will be offered in both Danish and English. Every year an outstanding representative of Danish cultural life, a Danish writer, poet, singer, or actor will offer a lecture for all the students.

During the Language course we offer two full day excursions around the region (both are included in the price). The first one is going to take you on a tour of North Zealand visiting some of the most magnificent spots to see, not to mention one of Europe’s most charming museums for modern art, Louisiana. The second excursion will be a guided tour to the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, with plenty of time to visit all your favorite spots.

You will get opportunity to compose your own timetable for the afternoons and evenings according to your interests and abilities:
a) Lecture series where you can study several subjects in depth, for example Danish art and design, film, politics, and literature.
b) Workshops on Danish grammar, phonetics, pronunciation, syntax, and the historical development of the Danish language.

After completing the requirements of the course a certificate will be issued as to document your new skills in Danish language.

Danish Level

We offer Danish Language on different levels; hence a specific knowledge about Danish language is not required. We would however like to know your level of spoken and written Danish before your enrolment in the course this is to ensure that the final composition of the students at the course is for the overall benefit of each individual student. Learning Danish is difficult so we will do our utmost to make sure that the perfect conditions for learning are available.

We use the Common European Framework Reference (CEF/CEFR) to determine the levels of individual students. If you are unfamiliar with the CEF, please take your time to look through this overview before marking your level of Danish in the application form, please try and be as precise as possible – it’s for your own benefit!

What does International People’s College have to offer?

Apart from an excellent programme we offer a cosy, nice and safe environment in which to learn. You will engage with students from all over the world, make friendships, have fun, learn from one another and share cultural peculiarities. You don’t have to worry about anything. We offer nice accommodation (either in single or double rooms), three daily delicious meals, a decent gym, a wonderfully lush park with a small beautiful lake and a bonfire place where you can spend evenings dreaming around the fireplace.

The school is located close to the sea, so you could head down to the beach for a refreshing swim or go treasure hunting in idyllic downtown Helsingør. If you have the urge for a real shopping spree, then hop on the train to Copenhagen, which is only a 45-min ride away, or board the ferry for a 20-min trip to Helsingborg, Sweden.

We quite simply offer you a place where you have no worries, plenty of friends, possibility to relax watching movies or TV, play pool or fussball.
