I have been teaching Norwegian since 2015. I started teaching at a summer school in Alver municipality where I am from, and found that I really liked it. I have been teaching for Cactus since 2019 in London.
I first moved to Manchester in 2012 and from there to London later that year. I had a three-year-long break in Norway from 2016-2019 and moved back to my beloved London in February of 2019.
Currently, I work freelance as a writer/copywriter, with texts and words on various projects and degrees. Though my background and degree is in the music industry. I have a BA in Singing and a BA in Music Industry Management, primarily Copyright and IP-law. Languages have always fascinated me and I have worked as a Norwegian teacher on and off since 2015 along with both creative and factual writing.
I was born in Bergen, Norway. It is an incredibly beautiful city. In my humble opinion and without being biased, of course. The city is surrounded by seven mountains, though apparently, I was just made aware of the fact that they are too low to be called mountains. Fair to say that this shocked me to my very core and I chose to leave it in the past. Bergen is just by the sea and is called the gateway to the fjords. It has close ties with the UK through trade traditions, fish and oil. The city is also known for its incredible music scene which has seen the rise of artists like AURORA, Kygo, Sigrid’s band and management, and overall it is just a very creative artistic place with beautiful nature.
Norwegian and English. Speaking Norwegian I can also understand 99% of Swedish and 90% of Danish. And some Icelandic and German. The languages are just so similar!
Speak as much as you can! Put it in practice straight away, whether it is through having your phone in Norwegian, speaking with classmates, going to Scandi Kitchen and say “hei” to the staff. Use it practically as much and as often as you can.
Jeg håper å møte deg på et av Cactus sine norskkurs 🙂
Ha det bra!
