Danish Second Language

Danish Second Language


Curriculum Overview

At ISIB we offer Danish as a Second Language lessons to pupils who do not speak Danish at Mother Tongue Level. We follow the guidelines set out in the Ministry of Education’s “Fælles Mål” for Danish as a Second Language.

The aim of the programme is to build up Danish speaking and listening skills. Pupils enter the programme at many different ages and levels. After an initial assessment they will join the programme at their Danish speaking and listening level.
