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….
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. Also, "Norwegian as a second language for teaching adults" from Norway Inland University of Applied Sciences.
I have been teaching Norwegian online for 7 years. I have also many years of experience as a musician, teaching music and musical instruments.
I love to teach my language! That’s why you can find me here as Norwegian Online Teacher!
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.
