How long have you been teaching for and how long for Cactus?

I have been teaching for 8 years in general, and I have been teaching for Cactus for 2 years in London.

How long have you been living in the UK?

I have been living in the UK for over 15 years now.

What is your degree and teaching experience?

I have a degree in Hotel & Tourism and a Diploma in French Language. As a native speaker, I have been teaching Swedish as a second language for 8 years in London. I speak 5 languages.

Have you ever worked in another field?

Much like Spiderman, I also have a day job and work in broadcasting.

What cultural custom is the country you were born in famous for?

Fika – This has really started to take off outside of the Swedish borders and it is the concept of taking a break from your day, sit down with family and friends, eat cake, drink coffee and just talk. This happens twice a day in Sweden, 10am and 3pm.

What was your best teaching experience?

My best teaching experience was when I got to help a whole family (English) to reconnect with their mother (Swedish) who had passed away by learning her childhood language.

Do you have any specific language learning tips?

Make it fun and work it into your everyday life.


Hope you will come and join us, have a laugh and hopefully learn some Swedish!
