Southern Funen

We are a language center with a central location in town, right next to the train station and busses. The school has day and evening courses. It is also possible to learn Danish online - we can always find a flexible solution for you. Our beautiful venue is spacious enough for activities to supplement the Danish language instruction. For example, we have a volunteer café with homework tutoring and conversation partners. We are continually striving to offer more to our course participants.
