Sign up for Danish Lessons here

The Saturday School is a language school for children from 4 years and upwards. Every other Saturday from September till May from 2-4pm children come for classes at the Church. We assemble in church, sing a few songs together and after the children join one of the classes. Parents are welcome to stay in church hall or even take up Danish classes themselves read more. Children are divided into groups according to age and Danish language ability.

The teachers are for the most part experienced volunteers. The emphasis is on teaching the children to speak, read and write Danish in order to get by in an everyday situation in Denmark. We prepare the students socially and culturally to integrate with their family and friends in Denmark and form Danish friendships in London, in order to experience the benefits of having a Danish and an English or other background.

As the classes are held every other Saturday, it is essential that the family speak Danish at home to support the education by watching Danish films, books, apps and papers to develop the language. The school offers materials to parents to support Danish language skills at home.

In order to attend the Saturday School your child must be covered by a family membership of the Danish Church to be insured while attending, but the classes are non-devotional. You can sign up for a membership here. The tuition fee for a full season is £65 per child.

For further information, please contact head of school Helle Bond or call 07871651570.
