Expectations for the parents

It is expected that the children will understand some Danish as the teaching takes place in a mixture of Danish and English. We strive to teach in Danish as much as possible.

In addition, it is expected that parents actively support the children with homework and help in the classes sometimes.

Purpose

The purpose of Danish for Children is to give children with relation to Denmark the opportunity to learn, maintain and develop the Danish language both orally and in writing. Throughout the course, the children will also learn about Danish culture, history, geography and Danish traditions.

In order to optimize the benefits of the teaching, the students will get homework from time to time.

Where and when

The school year begins in February and ends in December. There are 10 classes each month (except July and January). Teaching takes place on the second Sunday of each month from 10:45am-1:30pm at the Danish Church, 33-35 Hillcrest Road, Pennant Hills.

New students are welcome any time.

Price

The price for an entire school year is $200 for the first child and $180 for subsequent siblings. This is payable in advance.

While we wait

Most parents choose to stay in the field while teaching. They hygge with talks and  coffee in the garden.

It is also possible to borrow Danish children’s books and films from the library of the Danish Church in the basement.

In any case, Danish for Children is also an opportunity for parents to meet and make new acquaintances.
