are earmarked for Danish families, living outside Denmark, who may need financial support for signing their children up to online Danish language instruction.
Danes Worldwide – a nonprofit support association for Danes living abroad – offers Danish language instruction at the school level (grades 0 to 9) for students aged 6-17 who live outside Denmark. The instructional program is flexible and fits easily into the students’ day to day attendance at school where they live.
For the 2016/2017 program, we have received sponsorships from foundations and private sources to enable six students to attend the program at no charge. The details are provided in the attached PDF file.
Online Danish language instruction is designed for families wanting their children to speak and write Danish at a level equivalent to that of children in Denmark of the same age. Designed in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, the instructional program is the only one of its kind. At the end of the grade 9 program, students may sit for the in-person exam (at Summer School) to earn the graduation certificate, Danish language.
