Sprogcenter Vejle is a municipal language centre that provides adult immigrants with Danish instruction as well as teaching them about cultural and social conditions in Denmark. The centre runs day and evening courses.
The education programme is divided into three Danish courses: Danish course 1 is intended for students with no or a poor educational background, Danish course 2 is intended for students who normally have a short educational background while Danish course 3 is intended for students who normally have a lower or upper secondary or higher educational background. Each Danish course is divided into six modules, and enrolment in the next module presupposes the passing of a test. All three Danish courses can be concluded at the language centre with a state-controlled exam: Danish 1 examination, Danish 2 examination, Danish 3 examination or the higher education examination, Studieprøven. One of these examinations is necessary to obtain a permanent residence permit in Denmark.
The language centre accepts all immigrants once they have been granted a Danish civil registration number, have reached 18 years of age, and have been referred by their municipality of residence.
The courses are free for students.
The teaching is organised so as to be flexible and individual, and planning takes place in close collaboration with each student. Course participants are expected to take considerable responsibility for their own learning, and only three years are allowed in order to pass one of the four Danish examinations.
The language centre also offers customised courses for specific target groups.
