Detailed Profile in English

About me


I‘m a teacher at the best SFI-school (Swedish For Foreigners school) in Stockholm: ABF Sveavägen 84, and I 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 sistens, 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 peoples.

So, hopefully you want to try me out!
