Participating as a non-Danish speaker
We continuously offer courses held in English, this involves some courses in first aid and antenatal classes/childbirth consultation. You can find these on our website.
Most of our activities are being held in Danish. If you wish to enroll for a course, please contact us. In this way, we make sure that the tutor has the necessary skills to teach the course in English as well as Danish, and to ensure your gain from the course. You will perhaps find it easier to follow an exercise class taught in Danish than a sewing class, thereby, it is always a good idea to contact us.
