Most patient teacher ever!

Anneli is the third Swedish teacher I've worked with and she is by far the best!

She has a very structured/objective based, yet highly adaptable approach to teaching, which has been extremely effective. We work together through a great course, which I have found very useful with respect to building a good vocabulary and understanding of Swedish grammar. However, we often break off from this on focus on specific areas of language learning which may be falling behind. In my case this is generally spoken/conversational Swedish.

She is super patient and has manner of delivery which I have found to be very re-assuring but also challenging when required. I'm not the most confident language learner, she takes this into account and pushes just enough without being overbearing.

I'd say she is capable of teaching Swedish to any level/objective. Whether your aim is basic travel communication or fluency.

Highly recommended!

Friendly, patient, clear, structured, fun instruction in Swedish!!

Anneli is a confident and able teacher who is friendly and fun to learn Swedish with.

Anneli tailors her teaching to my needs as a beginner learning the language for the first time. The lessons progress at a speed that is comfortable for me, allowing me to cement my understanding as I progress.

I like the fact that the content of the lessons is structured and has a clear focus/objective, I can see the progression I making. Furthermore, I am developing an understanding of the mechanics of the language in a context that allows me to apply what I have learned in 'real life' situations.

I am still having lessons with Anneli and cannot recommend her teaching highly enough!

Anneli is an excellent teacher!

Anneli is an excellent teacher! My lessons have followed a structured and comprehensive course presented in a style that is easy to follow and understand.

That coupled with additional information from the internet, Anneli's teaching style and her great sense of humour have made my lessons highly informative and very enjoyable.

Since beginning lessons my understanding of swedish has vastly improved in all areas despite having a relatively small amount of time to devote to study. When i visit family and friends in Sweden i can now be party to a conversation rather than wait for the inevitable 'translation'

Highly recommended!!

Fun, friendly and an excellent teacher!!

Anneli is simply fantastic. She has a natural gift for teaching and can explain what appear to be the most complex things in memorable and easy to digest gems. She is incredibly patient (and needs to be with me!), flexible and makes every lesson fun. In just 15 hours I have progressed from a few words (…"yes", "no" and "beer") to being able to converse with Swedish friends. If you are thinking about learning Swedish, then Anneli is without doubt the best choice you could make.

A five star teacher!!

Anneli is an excellent professional teacher in all respects; she is encouraging but appropriately challenging. She is extremely well prepared, reliable and knowledgeable, her standard of English is superb and she has a mastery of contemporary colloquial English and Swedish. Her gentle and encouraging teaching manner has enabled me to find learning Swedish much less daunting, and her sense of fun and humour has made the learning process fun. Through her help my Swedish contacts have commented on how well I now pronounce Swedish.

She demonstrates a thorough understanding of my learning needs, and is able to adapt easily to whether I need encouragement with conversational Swedish, or help with more formal grammar teaching.

I have found her to be a teacher of the highest standards and could not have wished more from a teacher. Quite simply, I could not recommend her highly enough.

Highly recommended

Anneli gave me phone lessons in conversational Swedish for over 18 months. She created a really relaxed environment, where speaking Swedish doesn't feel scary at all, and is happy to discuss anything and everything!

She knows all the best websites for language learners, and is very big on introducing her students to Swedish culture. If it's Shrove Tuesday, we get an email telling us about semla; as Christmas approaches, she hear about the (slightly bizarre) Lucia celebrations.

An excellent teacher.

Anneli is an excellent teacher!

Anneli is an exceptional teacher of Swedish. She is a native speaker and really knows her formal grammar, but also has a great understanding of the idiomatic and colloquial nuances of the language. I've worked with her for about a year and a half off and on for an hour each week. Her lessons are well-planned and effective plus being quite creative. She not only focuses on the written form of the language, but emphasizes listening to the language, too. She also has pointed me to some great resources online including an online Swedish-English dictionary site that has been invaluable as well as a wonderful Swedish news radio site. I came to her with the goal of writing a letter in Swedish to my cousins in Sweden and through her patient and excellent help, we crafted a letter together successfully. I sent the letter last Christmas and received a reply shortly. I am pleased to say that through my lessons with Anneli, I was able to translate the letter fairly easily. So, I would highly recommend Anneli as a Swedish teacher.

Great teacher, enjoyable lessons, inspiring experience!

Anneli helped me get to grips with the Swedish language, with enjoyable lessons. She helped build my confidence through some of the idiosyncracies of grammar with interactive conversation sessions.

Anneli's well planned lessons meant that I could see the progress I was making :o)
I feel that I have gained a good foundation in the Swedish language which I'm now ready to build on!

I definitely recommend Anneli if you are looking for a superb Swedish teacher!

A natural language teacher - a very rewarding experience overall

Anneli was absolutely great as a teacher and I feel I've benefitted greatly and been given a good grounding in the Swedish language. Not only that, I feel my understanding of the English langauge has also improved as a result of taking these lessons.

She was very patient and thorough in her teaching. This was combined with a good lesson structure and excellent material. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a Swedsish language teacher.

Productive and enjoyable.

In my experience Anneli is a natural language teacher. She is friendly enough that you feel your hesitations about speaking Swedish dissolve. She delivers the material (even boring grammar bits!) in ways that make it very easy to assimilate.
We tended to approach sessions in a rather creative way, and she easily adapted to teaching me exactly what I needed to fill in the gaps in my knowledge.

Having lessons with Anneli was always something I looked forward to!

The Best!

Anneli has an extremely creative style of teaching. She ensured that I enjoyed and educated myself at the same time. The language became easy to learn and I looked forward to the surprises she packed in during the session.
I learnt to speak a lot in a very short time and wish to continue, knowing I have found the best teacher on the net!

Anneli was of great help to me, she is a really nice person who makes you feel very comfortable when learning with her.

Anneli is a great teacher. She has a very relaxed style and made me feel very comfortable. Her explanations were very clear and I started to understand things that books could never explain.
I would recommend Anneli to anyone wishing to improve their Swedish and I hope one day to continue studying with her.
