Sprogcenter Vejle is a public language centre that organizes Danish language course for adult immigrants in Denmark. The centre runs day and evening courses.
The education programme is divided into three Danish courses: Danish course 1 is primarily for students with no or little educational background, Danish course 2 is primarily for students with a short educational background while Danish course 3 is for students with longer than 10 years of educational background. Danish course 3 can be followed by an extra course which allows students entrance to a higher education institution in Denmark.
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.
The passing of one of these exams 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 in a flexible and individual manner, and planning of curriculum 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 Danish examinations.
The language centre also offers customised courses for specific target groups.
