Becoming integrated is very important for foreigners living in Denmark.
The time this process takes varies according to each individual's personal circumstances. Embarrassment, age, job and getting to know Danes are some of the most important factors for integration of foreigners.
In Lejre Kommune there is a group of volunteers who befriend newcomers. Both parties benefit; the immigrants learn the Danish language and customs and get help with practical things, while the Danes make new friends and learn about life in other countries.
