10 individual Master Basic Danish lessons
Whether you choose Master Basic Danish tailored for you or Master Basic Danish in a group in your first module the focus is on building foundation or assuring that your learn-Danish-foundation is good.
You will be urged to focus on learning Danish at least 8 minutes a day, to take notes AND to use the Danish, you already know.
By focusing (a little) on learning (some) Danish each day you will be reaping the (Danish) fruits in terms of being able to interact with

- Danish authorities, teachers, staff etc.

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.
Using the Danish you know can open doors and hearts.

Are the Danish 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 8 minutes a day some days easily becomes 9, 10 or 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 an oldfashioned notebook with an alphabet index or create an electronic Personal Dictionary in an Excel sheet or similar. You’re welcome to ask me to send you a copy of ‘My Personal learn Danish with Ease Dictionary’ (made in Google Sheets) with your name on it.
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 towards mastering the Danish language.
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.
