Katrine Amtkjær Nielsen, a teacher with ten years of experience, is offering mother language teaching to Danish children in Guangzhou.
She has recently moved to this southern Chinese city from Shanghai, where she had been an integral part of the team behind “Den Danske Skole”, that offers mother-language teaching to students from the age from 6 to 16.

The location for the classes depend on where the majority of Danish children, who want to participate, are living. Katrine Amkjær Nielsen is flexible as to what daytime hours, the classes have to take place, depending on the children’s school schedules and other extracurricular activities.
The school-materials are all approved by the Danish Ministry of Education.
Teaching 1st to 4th graders is primarily based on “Stavevejen” and “Skrivevejen” plus a focus on spelling-rules, reading tempo and understanding. Classes for 5th to 9th graders are based on particular texts on the same subjects as the younger grades, while adding analysis of literature and interpretation.
Continuous tests on different aspects will be an important part of classes for all ages.
The fee depends on the number of students participating. One student is 225 rmb per hour, but the price drops depending on the number of students in the class.
