We are a multicultural Folk High School and we mainly teach in English, the foundation of the Folk High Schools is that it’s for everybody. To our beliefs, you expand your knowledge intellectual, physical, mindfully, musically and creatively, best through diversity. Differences in culture, language, background, and interests. For us to teach you best, we need your engagement, to start at a Folk High School demands interest, participation and that you can communicate in English.

When we work with languages at Højskolen Østersøen, it is with the goal that everyone should be able to talk together.

We have students from all corners of the world who are learning languages with and from each other. All students have very different prerequisites and no matter how much or how little language you know, we strengthen your language together. At all levels – also yours. We work on three different levels (beginner, easily practiced, advanced), and we know that we can give you a positive experience by learning languages. An experience you may not have in the luggage, but we have 20 years of experience giving you.
