During the summer we offer different short courses at International People’s College. We typically run two different three week long language courses (Danish or English language) with a focus on language classes, but also getting insights into the Danish Culture and Society – i.e. by lectures, cultural events and excursions in Denmark. We have offered language courses at International People’s College for more than 35 years, and the students especially empathise that the atmosphere at International People’s College, combined with the various methods used in classes, and the mixture of students from different countries, are reasons for their great success.
