My name is Bergur and I am here to teach Faroese
italki teacher since Aug 27, 2021
Hello! My name is Bergur and I am here to teach Faroese. My day job is at a rehab facility as a registered nurse, but I also love truck driving. In my spare time, I like going to the gym with my wife and reading novels based on real history.

Me as a Teacher
I have finally found the courage to dive into the world of italki and now I am looking forward to trying something new. Online teaching is new to me, but it can't be that hard... right? Jokes aside, it's important for me that my students have good learning experiences in my lessons - that makes me very happy!
My lessons & teaching style
My focus is to adjust each lesson to an appropriate level for each individual student. I will try to assess your current level and disposition and I will be mindful of your goals. As long as you remember that I am not yet a professional, I will do my best to become one.
From what I have been told, I am a very good teacher when it comes to pronunciation, so if you are already learning Faroese but just want to sharpen your skills, I might be able to help you with that as well.

Bergur gave a very interesting introduction into the political parties and the coming election. I really enjoyed listening, he is a very entertaining and at the same time knowledgeable narrator.

How often is it the case that your teacher can reference a saga that has anything even slightly to do with one's jobs. (In this case, seals, or rather kópakonan, a saga about a seal woman). As a fan of legends and sagas I was very happy for this turn of events. Bergur is so flexible in his teaching that I'm positive he can turn absolutely anything into a learning opportunity!

Bergur is a great teacher.
Extremely patient, possitive and professional. Also flexible and open-minded. He knows the principles of effective learning. He quickly realised what we should focus on.

Awesome first lesson, Bergur! Went straight into practice sentences to learn both basic and more complex sounds + translations. Trying to use my background in Icelandic & Norwegian to my advantage and override some of those pronunciation tendencies. Looking forward to delving into the grammar further and having confidence in speaking about basic topics once I make it to Tórshavn in a couple months, stóra tøkk!

Very helpful lesson today working with antonyms! I’m happy to dive into the homework and try to augment what I learned from Bergur today.
