About Let's Dansk!

Dr. Melissa Lucas has taught Danish to community members in Seattle for 12 years at the Scandinavian Language Institute, and taught Danish to students at the University of Washington for 5 years.  She noticed that the inquiries received from those venues tend to fall into 3 broad categories:

Where can I take Danish lessons if a university course is not an option?
Can you translate these Danish _______
        family letters and documents?

        academic resources/historical records?

        memoirs and (auto)biographies?


How do I get a Danish _____
work/study visa?

residence permit?


Melissa started Let's Dansk to address these inquiries and more.  On this website you can find in-person* and online Danish classes, translation services, and information about Denmark and the Danish Language.
