In Expat Feedback

Expat feedback – Maria from Greece


One of my fellow students, Maria, whom I go to school with, kindly accepted to share her valuable feedback.
I sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading this post, where she shares her personal experience of learning Danish.

Thank you Maria!

About you
I am Maria from Greece and I have been living in Denmark for a year and a half.

Your school
I am going to Studieskolen, since module 2.2

How did you find each module so far?
2.2 was very useful for me, one of the most from the most helpful modules, because I learnt about the structure of sentences. Vocabulary, you can always learn with time, but syntax is something else.
3.1 in my opinion, started giving information about life in Denmark, for example, types of houses, and some important grammar as well.
As for 3.2 and 4.1, I would not say that I learnt something very important, but my speech got more flow, as we started speaking more in the classroom. My writing started to improve as well, also the ability to understand Danes. It felt like a revision of everything I have learnt before, with emphasis on where I had problems.

Day classes vs evening classes?
I would say morning classes by far. In my opinion, it is crucial when someone starts learning Danish, to set a good basis. And that you can mainly do, with morning classes, which are twice the hours of evening classes. Also more emphasis on the pronunciation, again, according to my opinion.

Do you have any tips about how to improve your Danish while studying and being in Denmark

Read books and choose some words you would like to know. Find a Dane and ask him to talk in Danish. Ask him to correct you, so that you can realize the mistakes you make while talking.
