Just ask when the language becomes tricky

Learn the language and meet the Danes

Learn Danish individually

In Denmark we would like our foreign newcomers to learn to speak Danish. All adult foreigners, who move to Denmark, are offered LANGUAGE COURSES in Danish and in Denmark we also provide online Danish courses before moving to Denmark.

ONLINE DANISH is a free online language offer which primarily applies to people who want to learn Danish before moving to Denmark. However, you can also use it when you have moved to Denmark.

Online Danish is divided into three levels: Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced. You can make a login registration  to the page, i.a. to test your starting level.

Other online-offers in Danish lessons are also available. Click HERE or ask the library


Practice makes Perfect

Even though you are attending a Danish course it is important also to use different options to learn and practice the Danish language on your own.

The best way of practising a new language is always to speak it as much as possible with others who master it. Don’t restrain yourself, even though of course it is difficult to speak a new language. You will learn that the Danes are positive and will gladly help you if you try to speak Danish.

The fact that you attend Danish classes and try to speak Danish show that you are interested in the Danes and the Danish culture, and it will help you to become part of the social life more quickly - both in your workplace and in your leisure time in relation to neighbours and others you will meet through association activities.

You will get a good chance of using Danish in your leisure time if you do like most citizens in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality. Like them you just need to be active in your leisure time and sign up in an association with e.g. sports activities. Generally speaking, they can be found in all towns and villages, or find an association offering the hobby or leisure activity to which you are dedicated, so you get in contact with other people with the same interest.

Ioana and Sorin

Romanian Family:

We have been made very welcome

”We love our country, Romania, but we have also grown very fond of Denmark which has become our home,” says 37-year-old Sorin Ungureanu who - together with his wife Ioana and their two children - find themselves so much at home that in the autumn of 2017 they bought the house of their dreams in Borris. Borris is a town with approximately 800 inhabitants in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality – geographically the biggest municipality in Denmark.

“We have been living here since 2011 and our children are fully integrated in the local community and gradually, so are we. We have been made to feel really welcome in this town. People gladly help us and we are very happy about living here,” Sorin says whilst simultaneously smiling at Erling Søndergaard - one of the passionate locals who likes to give a lending hand. Erling has helped the family with the purchase of their house, and as a friend of the family he joins our conversation as to why Sorin and Ioana came to Denmark and what it is like for a foreign family to move to Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality.

”We are also happy having you here. We can tell that you like being here, and you have also done a great deal to become a part of the community,” Erling points out referring to the fact that Sorin among others has been active in leading a father-child gymnastics team and a table tennis team in town.

Charlotte and Ian

Danish/English couple:

Wish of living the good life

”Above all, we just wanted to be together and live the good life. We love being together” says the Danish/English couple Charlotte and Ian Coles who have settled down in an idyllic old farm house at Kloster, halfway between the Ringkøbing Fjord and the Stadil Fjord and close to the town of Ringkøbing.

It is not surprising that the couple had a wish of the good life in peaceful surroundings with lots of nature. Ian was a Major in the British Army, which meant the couple had moved around military bases in England and Germany for years. Ian had also been deployed close to the world’s war zones, leaving Charlotte alone and suffering months of deprivation during their first year in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality.

They bought the old farmhouse overlooking the Stadil Fjord in 2013, and Charlotte moved in full-time, while Ian could only come home as work allowed. But now the good life has really started as Ian retired this summer.

Ian is 48 years old and he has just landed a job with Vestas - the wind turbine manufacturer – as a Project Training Leader.
