Our native speaker qualified Danish language teachers can train you and your colleagues at your office or home at a time to suit you. Classes can be any day of the week (even weekends) in the morning, afternoon or evening. In certain circumstances, if your home or office is not suitable, you can take your classes at the trainer's office. Lesson books are provided.
These lessons in Danish are wider-ranging in their nature, and are driven towards students who have a variety of differing needs. All beginner students will expect to study enough survival Danish to get them through a short visit to the country, those staying on with the lesson can progress differently, depending on their individual requests and requirements. Whether you are buying property in a foreign country, married to a foreign national, planning a round-the-world trip, interested in Danish history and culture, or if you simply want to attain a particular level of Danish, this is the choice for you.
Danish lessons of this type are aimed towards those that need to learn Danish to aid them with their employment. For those just starting out, it is integral to learn basic greetings and business etiquette; and reading and writing can be adopted once the simple precepts are out of the way. Success has come from students who are involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, those seeking jobs in multinational companies, and those working with foreign colleagues, academia and bureaucracy. Just our most basic beginners lesson will have the student finishing the lesson with basic telephone/e-mail skills in Danish, as well as survival Danish should a short stay in the country be needed.
Those wishing to learn Danish in groups of 2 or more together (Two-to-One Danish Lessons or Small Group In-Company Danish Lessons) can sign up for our group classes. All students must be at nearly the same level of Danish proficiency, must have the same needs from the language, and must be able to study at the same time and place as the others. Bookings must be made for all students simultaneously. Listen & Learn do not propose group sizes or more than 6-8 people, but In-Company Taster Danish Lessons can occur with up to 12 people.
The Old Norse language is responsible for most Danish vocabulary, and words can be compounded by combining other words together. German, French and English also lend their fair share of vocabulary
Danish used to use a Runic alphabet, but nowadays is written in the standard Latin alphabet, with the addition of three other letters: æ, ø, and å
Unusually, Danish does not have particularly noticeable multiple dialects
