What are my rights to free Danish lessons?
You have the right to take Danish lessons for free 5 years from the date when you were first found eligible. This only apply for citizens in Copenhagen – not the surrounding municipalities.
If you become seriously ill for a long period and need extension
If you are prevented from participating in the Danish language training programme owing to serious illness for a long period, you should immediately apply for an extension of the period of the training programme when you realise that due to the illness you cannot finalise your Danish language training programme within the period.
You can still apply for an extension of your Danish language training programme if you have been prevented from participating due to serious illness throughout a long period.
You must apply when you are prevented owing to serious illness and apply for an extension at the latest when you are no longer prevented from participating in the Danish language training programme, meaning no later than one month after you have been reported fit to return to work. Otherwise, you are not entitled to an extension. You must apply for the extension and document the course of disease with Jobcenter Integration.
If you have started the Danish language training program and are prevented from attending for a period, you should immediately apply for an extension to the 5 years that you have already been granted, in case you need longer to complete the program.
