Hello! My name is Nora and I am born and raised in Sweden and have lived most of my life within Sweden. I love cats and my interests are... reading books, swimming and travelling. I have a bachelor in social work and have worked in both Swedish and English speaking environments. For instance as a school counselor in an English speaking high school and as an English teacher in Cape Town in South Africa for kids. I am studying Spanish myself at the moment and I know how hard it can be in the beginning with a new language. I also know how much fun it can be when you start to actually be able to communicate in your new language. I believe every new language you learn is going to expand your way of thinking and make you grow! I can offer both teaching for absolute beginners in Swedish, but also if you want to develop the language skills you already have. I offer a free trial lesson. If you want to know more about me or the learning process, feel free to contact me! Have a nice day! /Nora Read more
Interested in learning something useful and fun? Let's do it together! I'm an enthusiastic learner and teacher, always in search of... challenges and intellectual adventures! I recently finished a PhD in Nordic cultural studies, spent a lot of time abroad and foreign languages are something I'm particularly keen on. I believe that not only are they entertaining and fascinating, but they also open portals into the marvelous world of cultural diversity. In my classes I focus mainly on the communicative aspects of the language, in daily practical contexts, but grammar is also a must. We'll deal with both understanding and producing, according to your needs and rhythm, but always in a pleasant and relaxed manner. I'll also provide learning materials. Looking forward to meeting you! :) Read more
Very experienced teacher!
Hi everyone! Hola a todos! Hej allihopa! Привет всем! My classes focus on developing communication skills in English, Spanish,... Swedish or Russian for travelers or immigrants/expats. You are going to be able to use the language from the first class. In our first class we get to know each other as a learner and as a teacher. It's very important for you to share your expectations about how you see our language classes and what language outcomes you are looking to achieve. After that I will give you my suggestions that will help you to accomplish your learning goals according to your specific needs and situation as no learner is the same. I work with all levels of English and Russian, beginner-intermediate Spanish and beginner Swedish. As an experienced expat who has lived and worked in USA, Sweden, Russia, China and Spain, I am a strong believer that language is a vehicle for communication, and just like driving any vehicle is a SKILL that has to be learned by "using" that vehicle, the same goes for language learning: merely studying about the language has never helped anyone to actually speak that language. The more you USE the language, the more things you do in it, the more you will get used to it, and that language will become less foreign to you. I am convinced that the way you think about that foreign language you are learning conditions your progress in it. Attitude is everything, so start from it. If you need help with setting a right attitude and mindset towards language learning, I will be more than happy to help. Or drop me a message for a chat to practice speaking English, Russian, Spanish or Swedish in a friendly nonjudgmental atmosphere. Read more
