Hello, my name is Jesper
I’ve taught various languages (Danish, English and German) to both friends and professionally.
I’m a very pedagogical and patient teacher and I strive to create warm and encouraging environment for my students where learning becomes enjoyable and fun. It’s important to learning that it isn’t just a boring chore, but it’s a fun and engaging activity that the student can play around in and explore the language. The playful and warm environment also welcomes mistakes as it’s the fastest way to learn.
My material focusses on building only the mere basics of vocabulary and grammar before starting to speak and have small conversations. At this point I build on the basics through a mix conversation and teaching with more grammar and vocabulary.
I’m currently learning my 5th foreign language and in my lessons I draw a lot on my own experiences of how to learn foreign languages. I use effective memory techniques like creating creative associations and Flashcards. It’s also very important for me to explain the concepts well instead of encouraging rote memorization. It’s not only a lot more fun and interesting, but also much faster
I’m looking forward to helping you reach your language goals!
