If you are a citizen from another EU/EEA country, the Faroe Islands or Greenland living in Denmark you can sign up your children for mother-tongue education. In Vejle, Polish and Portuguese classes are currently offered.
The purpose of participating in mother-tongue education is to maintain and develop the children’s familiarity with their mother-tongue and to learn more about their home country. The children have the opportunity to understand their background and to master the language.
Mother-tongue education is offered to pupils in grades 0-9. The education is voluntarily and it is free of charge for children living in Vejle Municipality to participate. If you live outside Vejle Municipality, please refer to the municipality you live in.
Mother-tongue education takes place outside normal school hours. Classes are held if at least 12 students wishing to learn the same language are interested and if it is possible to find a qualified teacher. Classes take place at one of the schools in Vejle on either a weekday or Saturday.
If fewer than 12 pupils sign up, it is possible to take the mother-tongue education in another municipality that offers the required language.
The deadline for signing up is in early May. Børn&Unge Afdelingen (The Children & Youth Administration) form classes for the following school year at the end of May.
