Where can I take free Danish classes in Copenhagen?

The City of Copenhagen has an agreement with 7 language schools, which are free of charge and among which you can choose freely.

Employees, students, accompanying spouses, au pairs and other self-supporting adult foreigners have a free choice of language school, both in Copenhagen and in other municipalities.

You need to have a CPR number in order to get free Danish classes. You can find out where you get a CPR number at How do I get a CPR number?

The City of Copenhagen has an agreement with 7 language schools, which you can see below.

There are 2 types of programmes. First you participate in 'labour market-related Danish lessons' (Introdansk), these target beginners planning to join the labour market.

Once you finish this programme, you can participate in the 'Danish language training programme' (Danskuddannelse). Here you can improve your Danish even further during a period of 3 years.

In order to participate in the courses, you need to contact one of the schools, or access their website to read more. You can also read more in the pdf below.

Please note

If you wish to change to another lan­guage school, you are free to do so, when you have completed the active 50 hours Introdansk, or the on-going Danskud­dannelse module and before you begin the next one.
