Danish online is
a convenient way of learning Danish from the comfort of your home, your office or wherever you are when having access to an Internet connection.
As of your preference we meet via the platform Zoom, Skype or have our Danish lessons via phone.
Daily focus on learning Danish for at least 8 minutes will lead to success with understanding and using the Danish language, when interacting with
• your danish spouse and his or her family
• your children
• your colleagues
• your neighbours
• danish media etc.
Let me help you reach the level, where you can express yourself in the way you want to.
Being able to use (simple) common phrases can be a gateway for what you want in many nuances. Being willing and able to speak plus understand (some) Danish gives you an important advantage, when you want to live, cope and succeed in Denmark.
Begin with the basic – or, continue your learn-Danish-journey by – becomming more and more confident while you increase your ability to speak Danish – and – pick up new words and phrases
How do we meet?
We meet online via Skype, phone or Zoom for structured lessons lasting approx. 40 or 60 minutes.
For appointments send me an email.
What’s in it for you?
What do you get?
By choosing online Danish with me, Birgit Månestråle, you get
- Customized focus on your needs and preferences
- Guidance as to how you can improve your Danish skills on your own
- Feedback and tools to improve your pronunciation
- Affirmations about what, as in my opinion, you are actually being good at
- Opportunity to choose the topics of your need or interest by which you will improve your Danish skills. Can fx be: Company guidelines, official documents, learn-Danish-books, instructions, Danish literature, texts about your hobby, texts written by you…
- Bite-sized (challenging) homework. We aim for the moon, and celebrate the stars and paths that you actually reach or discover.
Are the Danish online lessons structured?
It might, though, not be the way, that you perceive or have as a reference for structure.
When I – originally – was learning to read, I was first introduced to the letters. Thereafter I learned to put the letters together into words, whereafter I learned about grammar and word order, in order to make sentences.
As you have passed this basic level, we will work, as if we are on a main road, where we want to go from A to B, but where we’ll stop at all sights of our interest.
So: Yes your Danish lessons will have a structure and you will be challenged by leaving the structure/ the plan in every lesson, by fx getting questions not related to the subject, but relevant for the “here and now” where you and I have our learn-Danish-exchange.
How much homework?
You decide. The more you are able to focus and study the faster you may reach your goal.
AND, that said (or actually written above) my approach is, that learning Danish should happen ‘with ease’.
Ease isn’t necessarily easy – but, when you manage to learn with ease, as if learning Danish is your passion, then your eagerness increases. It becomes fun to recognize Danish words and phrases. You smile. You get the feeling of victory: “Yes, I can do it.” “Yes I’m doing it.” Small progress, large progress. Any focus counts.
Some days you only sense a sound or a word. When getting into a good study habit, then 5 minutes a day some days easily becomes 6, 7, 8 and maybe 20 minutes. When having excess time, focusing an hour or an hour and half will give you the good feeling of having accomplished what you wanted to accomplish.
I will encourage you to keep track of your successes with Danish by creating and using a Personal Dictionary and a book in which you note your success with Danish in general.
Make your Personal Dictionary in a notebook with an alphabet index or create an Excel sheet/ spreadsheet.
Let your Book of succes with Danish be a real old fashioned notebook. Write any progress and happy moments and experiences of having succes using the Danish language, coping or succeeding ‘in Danish’.
Writing down words and phrases important to you emphazises / amplifies the effect of your learning. Same thing with your successes as focusing on actual progress and success, experienced by you, will fuel your next steps and level.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience working with Birgit Månestråle. Her style is unique, flexible, creative, encouraging and above all FUN! Danish is considered a difficult language to learn but Birgit tailored each meeting with interesting and relevant content and I was always inspired by our discussions which were pitched at just the right level. Her commitment and enthusiasm was amazing – she was responsive between meetings reviewing written material and always ready with additional support and direction. Birgit enjoys teaching and she was always excited and happy to be there. My confidence with Danish improved immeasurably during the time we worked together. I absolutely recommend Birgit for learning Danish.
