At Børnehuset Skovshoved we have experience and success with accommodating children from e.g. UK, USA, China and Nepal who do not speak Danish (only very few people in the world do!). It takes time to learn a new culture and a new language – these children often speak three languages but this is not an obstacle to making friends!
