About AB Danish

The idea of personal teaching – with better results

Back in 2019 Danish tutor Mikkel Ahlburg founded ”AB Danish”.

Based on his long experience teaching international groups abroad as well as in Denmark, he wanted to offer people from abroad a new teaching method.

The method is simple: Personal, engaging teaching – with faster results.

“Until AB Danish was founded the students could either attend the public language schools and have lessons in big classes with varying levels and changing teachers – or they could pay a fortune to a private company, “ Mikkel says.

“In the last case the educators are often students with no or a minimum of teaching experience.”

Individual needs – individual motivation required

The idea of AB Danish was clear:  Mikkel saw a need to adapt each lesson to the needs of the individual student, while at the same time being very focused on the student’s motivation to learn.

By adapting each online Danish lesson to the individual student, he ensures the motivation remains high.

“From my education and long experience in teaching I know that every person learns in his/her own way. Therefore, I know that it is usually very difficult to learn a new language by sitting in a class with twenty other students, “ Mikkel says.

“I want to offer each person the best possible way to learn Danish. And the best results are achieved when the lessons are adapted to the level, needs and goals of each student. When the students are motivated and the lessons are flexible, they have time for their full-time job, family, and hobbies.”

The way of teaching

The easiest way to learn and improve a new language is simply by using it. At AB Sprog we focus a lot on motivating the students to improve their confidence in using the Danish language.

We plan each class to make it fit the everyday life of the individual student. During the classes we adjust the lessons to match the student’s motivation, needs and goals.

The material used for lessons

We use the material “Trin For Trin”, “”Vi taler dansk” & “Bliv klar” for the lessons. The material is created specifically for internationals and has plenty of great exercises for reading, listening, and speaking.

Furthermore, the textbooks meet the requirements for the different exams at the Danish language schools.

The material is carefully selected to make you benefit as much as possible from the lessons.
