Norwegian private lessons - native speaking, experienced and professional teacher
My availability changes all the time! Contact me for bookings! I was born in Norway in 1958. Since 1999, I have been living in Madeira,... Portugal.My interests are many; music, photography, art, animals, nature, gardening, healthy food, teaching…. Qualifications & Experience My academic background is in music and pedagogy from the Norwegian State Academy of Music, with some extra from Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA, and Norway Inland University of Applied Sciences. I have many years of experience as a musician, teaching music and musical instruments. Teaching language is closely related to teaching music. I am teaching Norwegian as a Foreign Language online at Folkeuniversitetet Øst, Myngel and LTC language solutions, and have been teaching at Lingu Norge and Learnship as well. I have also been teaching at Berlitz Virtual Classroom (BVC) for a couple of years before I was Lead Instructor – Recruitment and Training at BVC. I love to teach my language! That’s why you can find me here as Norwegian Online Teacher! Teaching approach Maybe you do not speak one word of Norwegian. Maybe you just want to practice speaking, or need grammar corrections. Lessons are customized to fit the student’s need, with the reason why they want to learn Norwegian in mind: For work, daily life etc. My teaching approach is “learning by speaking”. Speaking rather than cramming grammar and vocabulary from a book. We may also need material to work with. Depending on student’s need, this material could be the same as what is being used for immigrants to Norway. Lessons Please have a USB headset with a microphone – or ear pods w/microphone!It gives the best audio experience during the Skype sessions, and it separates the speaker from the microphone. It is important that I can hear your pronunciation clearly. The first time we meet, I will find out on which level your Norwegian is.We will talk about your reasons for learning the language, your learning preferences, the approach to take, and which material to use if any. Before the first lesson, and regardless of which level you are on, I do not expect anything more than a new student eager to learn my language! Read more
Languages: The best way to meet the world around you!
Hey there! My name is Kristian and I am a Greek, who feels rather Norwegian. What I always wanted, was to communicate, to express myself... and to be creative. Therefore, I realized very soon that languages are the best way to meet the world around me. There is no better way to strike up a new relationship than to speak with your peers, share your thoughts and express your feelings. Therefore, the key to master your life is oral communication. And the best way to master oral communication is culture. I have studied Social Sciences and Physical Education on a Bachelor Level, as well as Special Needs Education and Mass Communication Management on a Master's Level. Currently, I am a member of the Executive Research Group of Gothenburg University in European Studies. Learning a language might seem tricky. Yet, all it needs is a little bit of consistency and a lot of creativity. For more information, do not hesitate to push that contact button! Enjoy your day, Kristian Read more
