About me - English


I’m a teacher at the best SFI-school (Swedish For Foreigners school) in Stockholm: ABF Sveavägen 84 - and love it.

My students would indeed say I’m a good and very engaged and positive teacher - and I also have both a professional and private Google Classroom, where I can hand out any kind of material, mostly made by myself: grammar, classical texts rewritten for easy reading, articles with questions, wordlists and questions about short films, emails to answer, material to listen to - and also free material from different sources. Everything from beginner to advanced learner.

Swedish is my first language and my English is quite okay. I do also understand a bit of German and Italian. My spoken Swedish is more or less flawless, and my vocabulary is without limits - and I don’t speak too fast (even if I can speed up). Grammar and knowledge about modern (and ancient) Swedish, how it changes and how you use certain expressions today - are important. Many books are not updated - but I am.

I have a lot of interests, as movies, series (in many genres), literature from Shakespeare, The Bronte sisters, Dostoyevsky, Selma Lagerlof - to Harry Potter, fantasy/urban fantasy and biographies - as Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover (which was really gripping), art, architecture, environmental issues - and of course: meeting people.


So, hopefully you want to try me out!


PS: From April 24 2020, I sometimes will use google hangouts or Meet instead of Skype - and as we will work with google classroom - it’s better. I’ll send you a link - and you just say yes, if it’s okay. Skype haven’t been working well during corona. It’s lagging and the picture freezes all the time. DS
