Danish Language and Culture is highly recommended for all students studying at DIS Copenhagen. DIS offers regular 3-credit courses taught at levels I (fall and spring) and II (spring), and intensive 6-credit courses taught at levels I-II (fall and spring) and III-IV (spring). More advanced courses are offered for individual students.
As for the language instruction, the emphasis is on everyday spoken Danish. The goal is to enable you to have small conversations in Danish with your Danish host families, Danish roommates, or friends at the 'kollegium.' A successful learning process depends on active participation -- not only in class but also outside the classroom. During your stay, you will have unique opportunities to use your Danish and to observe and reflect on different cultural issues. All of which you are encouraged to bring into the classroom discussions.
