Brandbjerg Højskole is a Danish folk high school with an international, global touch. You will attend the school with mainly Danish-speaking students but on all semesters we also aim to have international students and students with refugee background. This means that the main language on the school is a mix of Danish and English. We like the diversity and the joys and challenges connected with running a school with many different cultures and several languages!
We all make an effort into smoothing the double language situation (we have appointed Danish students and teachers with a specific responsibility in the language field) but please note that not everything will be translated and that you would also have to make an effort yourself to have a student or a teacher translate or switch to English. For instance if you join a group of Danish speaking students in the living room.
Please also note that not all classes are available in English (i.e. the main subject Kompas (a focus on self development. Please note that you on elective subject level can choose something Kompas-like) and i.e. the elective subject “Vejledning” (wayfinding) and “Jagttegn” (hunting license).
The 3 other main subjects (Eventlab, Soundhouse and Outdoor) are available for English speaking students and most other elective subjects too. You’re always welcome to ask us for a list of elective subjects and the language offered at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re not Danish speaking it is a requirement that you speak and understand English at a reasonable level.
If you speak some Danish, you can attend our Danish class, but if you have no knowledge of Danish before you come, you should not expect to learn Danish during your stay.
