UIC Language Exchange

Free language training

The UIC offers international staff and spouses the opportunity to practise Danish, English, or any other language, provided that a partner can be found.

When you sign up for the UIC Language Exchange, we will match you up with a partner who speaks your target language, and guidelines for a successful partnership, but the rest is up to you! Usually, the exchange sessions are held once a week for one hour, with the time being divided equally between the two languages. The meetings can be held wherever and whenever suits you and your partner and the arrangement may last as long as you want. Obviously, both Danes and internationals are encouraged to participate, since both are essential to creating good partnerships. If you are new to Aarhus and/or Denmark, the UIC Language Exchange Project is a great opportunity for you to meet a new friend with whom to explore the city.

Interested? Then get in touch with Gitte Haahr-Andersen via gha@au.dk to inform us of your name, target language and native language.
