Classes

DE SMÅ

This class is for the earlier school years. Teaching them Danish mainly via a play based entry point. The class also welcomes older children who will still benefit learning Danish in this form. The teacher attempts to speak Danish but acknowledges that repetition in English is often needed for the children. Via games, drawing, reading, writing and singing we hope to keep your young children's attention for our Sunday class. When the child has enough level of Danish to progress to the Mellem Class they will be moved up.

(The class is taught by Anne Derriman who has children in the school.)

MELLEM

This class is aimed at kids that have basic Danish vocabulary, typically kids attending first few years of primary school. The focus is on practising oral Danish and discussing Danish culture and events. We aim to cover the most common words and sentences through verbal interactions and singing. The objective is for the kids to enhance their Danish in a fun playful environment.

(The class is taught by Jette Aagaard Doherty. She has two kids attending the school.)

DANISH IN ENGLISH

Danish for beginners is for non-Danish speaking children from the age of 7 years and up.

The class is taught in English with a special focus on introducing a basic Danish vocabulary and develop an understanding of the Danish culture.

Danish conversations, basic writing and reading out loud exercises, as well as playing games and occasionally watching small movies, all supported by conversations in English between teacher and student, and student and student, creates a fun and engaging environment for the child to learn and advance to “De Store” or “Mellem” klasse.

(The class is taught by Maria Christensen who has children in the school.)

DE STORE

The “De Store” follows on from “Mellem Klasse” and is aimed at older kids with a basic Danish vocabulary. Again the focus is on practising oral Danish and discussing Danish culture and events. The aim is to build on the kids vocabulary through reading Danish texts and discussing the contents.

(The class is taught by Pia Rasmussen, mother of Uffe.)

DANISH FOR ADULTS

DSDU has a mixed level adult class. Prior knowledge of some level of Danish is needed. The aim for this group is to build up on existing Danish skills to a level where a conversation can be comfortably had. The focus of the class is conversational but the teacher will also include work sheets in the lessons. The school provides all material.

(This class is run by Sava Bjerring.)
