Danish Language Courses

Denmark has one official language: Danish. However, there are several minority languages spoken throughout the territory, if you include The Faeroe Islands and Greenland.

Danes are taught English from a very young age and 86% of all Danes speak English as a second language. There. it is fairly easy for foreigners to move to Denmark and still be able to communicate with Danes. that being said, it is important to know that Danish is still spoken and used by your colleagues, your neighbours, in the local supermarket and by the Danish authorities. Typically, people wonder if it is possible to take a position at CBS without learning the Danish language.

To help you, we have gathered som information about the use of languages in Denmark.
