Learn Danish and Get Work
At Vestegnens Sprog & Kompetencecenter (VSK) our goal is for you to learn Danish as quickly as possible. To put it simply: the quickest way to learn Danish is to use it at work, during your free time and at home.
In many jobs in Denmark, good spoken and written Danish is a prerequisite. At Vestegnens Sprog- & Kompetencecenter we support you in your desire to get a job. We offer you the option of doing an internship in a company as part of your education here. We also organise events, at which you can make direct contact with companies and training courses.
That is one good reason to learn Danish at VSK. We help you acquire the Danish you will use at work, at home and during your free time: in short – Danish you can actually put to use.
Any foreigners, who are resident in Denmark and meet the requirements for Danish education for adult foreigners, are entitled to free Danish lessons. The teaching aims to give you an opportunity to learn the language and improve your chances of participating in Danish society and the Danish labour market.
At VSK we offer Job Market Danish and Danish for Foreigners. We also offer a variety of other courses and FVU (Preparatory Adult Education), which you can find in the Menu.
The course you start with is entirely determined by your personal preconditions.
- Job Market Danish
Job Market Danish is a special provision for anyone new to Denmark. This effective Danish course is for anyone who has come to Denmark to work, study or join his/her spouse, or to be an au pair. You must complete the 250-hour Job Market Danish course within your first 18 months in Denmark. If you complete the course, you can continue with free Danish lessons for up to 3 years on Danish Course 1, 2 or 3.

- Danish Courses 1, 2 & 3
Danish Courses 1, 2 & 3 provide a broad education in the Danish language for foreigners in Denmark. You can start on Danish Course 1, 2 or 3 if you have completed Job Market Danish, or if you are a refugee or come from a country outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland to be reunited with your family. As a rule, you are entitled to free Danish classes within a period of 3 years on Danish Course 1, 2 or 3. However, refugees and people reunited with their families are entitled to free Danish classes within a period of 5 years. Read more about Danish Courses 1, 2 & 3
