Danish Language Classes

Dear future students of the Danish language class.

Mai, the new teacher, will have the beginners and Elisabeth will have the intermediates. Both classes will be at the Scandinavian Center and both will start at 6:30 and end at 8:30. Time can be flexible if needed by students. Both of the teachers look forward to include you in the planning of the classes and thereby incorporate your expectations to the course.
