    Teaching Approach

    There are three major aspects of language learning: Vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation . Danish grammar is actually relatively simple when compared to other languages. The nemesis of Danish for most English or American English speakers is the highly gutteral pronunciation . Over many years, I have mastered a number of tricks and techniques for teaching this. In person is best, but over the phone is possible.

    I also use a specific text for my beginning and intermediate students which I have found highly effective in quickly grasping grammatical concepts while at the same time building vocabulary in a fun environment of stories, dialog and exercises which I ask the students to complete prior to each lesson. This allows me to assess strengths and weaknesses on a lesson by lesson basis and work with them.

    I am also a nationally recognized public speaker, educator and trainer in my industry, which is financial services related, so I understand the importance of making learning fun and entertaining. I also have lived and worked in Denmark and understand the business environment there.
