Any language level is welcome in this class for teens. Register by e-mail to Annette.h.lauridsen@nullgmail.com

Adult: Intermediate/beginner’ Danish language lessons will start Thursday, March 30, 2017 and end April 27.

The cost is $50 for the five lessons, payable on the first day of your class. A cheque made out to Danish House Society is preferred.

Here is a little information about teachers:

Beginner’s Class and Teens Class Danish Teacher Mai Rosthof

Mai has a masters degree in Media and Film Arts and a bachelor in Danish (Language & Literature) from Copenhagen University 2013. Before coming to Vancouver she was working for LEGO as marketing associate launching elementary and preschool products for LEGO Education. Mai wishes to create a relaxed and fun atmosphere in her classroom, where everyone can grow their language skills together and perhaps also get to know the culture of the small country a little better. Mai grew up in Vejle, Denmark. She came to Vancouver December 2016 with her boyfriend Villads and Bowie the labrador. This is her first time in Canada, and she thinks Vancouver is incredible. She is looking forward to explore the surrounding nature even more and so is her dog.


Beginner’s Class Danish Teacher

Frederik is 19 years old and moved to Vancouver in September 2016. He finished high school in June 2016 and after that he moved to Canada where he is going to stay for almost a year before he will begin studying again back in Denmark. In high school Frederik was studying English at the highest level and he has a wide knowledge about the connections and differences that Danish and English appear to have. He has been living in Aarhus, Denmark his entire life but he has family in both ends of the country and he can because of that give an excellent insight in the cultural differences that Denmark has as well. Furthermore Frederik will also be able to provide you with great assistance on how to speak Danish and make sure that your Danish gets improved a lot. He is very excited about seeing you for the next coming sessions.
