About Ahlburg Sprog
The idea of great teaching
Back in 2019 Mikkel founded” Ahlburg Sprog”.
Based on his long experience teaching international groups abroad as well as in Denmark, he wanted to offer people from abroad who wanted to live in Denmark a new teaching method.
“Until Ahlburg Sprog was founded the students could either choose to attend the public language schools and have lessons in big classes containing all kinds of different levels with different teachers or they could choose to pay a fortune to have a private company teaching them, – the educators often being students with no or a minimum of teaching experience.”
The idea of Ahlburg Sprog is very simple. Mikkel Ahlburg wants to adapt each lesson to the needs of the individual student. At the same time, he is very focused on the student’s motivation to learn. By adapting the content of each lesson to the individual student, he makes sure that the motivation will be maintained.
“From my education and long experience in teaching I know that every person learns in his/her own way. Therefore, I also know that it can be difficult to learn a new language by sitting in a class with twenty other students. Based on that I want to offer each person the best possible way to learn Danish. And the best results will be achieved when the lessons are adapted to the level, needs and goals of each student. When the students are motivated and when the lessons are flexible, the students have time for their full time job, family and hobbies.”

The way of teaching
The best way of improving a new language is by using it. At Ahlburg Sprog we focus a lot on motivating of the students, so they improve their confidence in using the Danish language.
We compose each class, so they fit into the everyday life of the individual student. During the classes we adjust the lessons, so they match the motivation, needs and goal for each person.
So, would you like:
- Improving your small talk skills?
- Be ready for the Danish job market?
- Talk to persons in stores or in your children’s school?
Let Alhburg Sprog help you!
In the classes the students and I use the material called “Trin For Trin”.
The material is meant for internationals, who want to learn the Danish language. It contains a lot of exercises in reading, listening and talking.
Furthermore, the textbooks meet the standards of the requirements of the different exams at the Danish language schools.
Ahlburg Sprog select a material, so you benefit as much as possible from the lessons.
DP1, DP2, DP3 and Studieprøven
It can be required that you at some point pass one or more of the exams meant for internationals living in Denmark. Maybe you want to join an higher education in Denmark, your work situation requires one of the exams or you want to have family reunification.
Passing one of the exams shows, that you are able to understand, read, write and talk Danish at a certain level. Furthermore, passing the exams shows, that you know how the Danish society works.
Ahlburg Sprog gets a lot of inquiries from persons, who want help to improve their skills and be ready for one of the exams. Together we make a plan depending on the scheduled exam, and then we focus on the different parts of the exam. Our experience is, that it makes great results, because the teaching will be one to one, and in that way, we can focus on the needs of the individual person and make sure, that he or her feels ready to join the exam.
