Danish Mother Tongue Programme
Our Danish Mother Tongue Programme supports the maintenance and development of the Danish language for native speakers, who are part of an international school setting throughout the child’s education starting from 3 up to 18 years. The programme is an integral part of the timetable and there are no additional fees for it.
Kindergarten and Pre-Primary
Danish lessons are run as part of the Midday Programme twice a week from 12.30pm - 3pm.
As of August 2015, Danish is integrated into the school day as an alternative to German foreign language. Students receive nearly 5 hours per week of Danish language and culture fully embedded into the PYP Programme of inquiry.
In the MYP, children can study Danish for 3 hours per week as a third language at native speaker level. The focus is on language and literature, drawing on Danish culture and media.
In the IB Diploma Programme, students can opt for Danish A Language and Literature (native language level) as one of their six mandatory subjects.
