Are you planning to take the official PD3 exam in May/June 2024? And would you like to enhance your chances of doing well? Then this intense preparatory exam workshop is most likely just what you need.

Language consultant, Jo Ebert Håkonsson at International Staff Mobility and former Danish language teacher, examiner and censor at Prøve in Dansk 3 will walk you through each step of the PD3 exam. The interactive workshop consists of three sessions – each with individual focus on the disciplines reading, writing and speaking that are all part of the final exam. During the workshop we will practice all disciplines step-by-step using past versions of PD3 exams in a small group setting.
