About Me
italki teacher since Sep 6, 2022
My name is Katla and I am a native speaker of Danish and German. I also taught myself to speak native-level English, Swedish and Dutch, and I have a degree in comparative linguistics, specialising in north-germanic (ie. scandinavian) languages. So I have a few language learning tricks up my sleeve, I can share with you. Outside of teaching Danish here on italki, I am working towards a post-graduate degree in computer science. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, coding, learning languages, spending time with friends and family as well as being in nature.

I have had a few lessons with Katla now and she is great - patient, kind, easy to talk to and good at explaining things. She has given me a lot more confidence in speaking Danish and is helping me prepare for my upcoming module test and bringing her own materials to help with this. Thank you Katla :)

Katla clearly loves what she does. It shows in myriad ways, many of which were evident in today’s lesson: her proactive willingness to present vocabulary from the lesson in a way that will help keep track and integrate it into my lexicon more easily, her commitment to spending time outside of lessons gathering materials that I would find interesting, and in her active listening skill. She has the uncanny ability to know exactly which words I’m searching for mentally and adjust them into the most natural language possible. Any of these skills and practices would be great on their own, but the fact that she embodies all of them make her an amazing teacher!

After seven lessons with Katla I have found her to be an attentive, positive and hard working teacher. She is great at giving positive reinforcement and encouragement. She will both take into account her students wishes whilst also herself identifying things that need to be worked on. And she frequently checks in to make sure that I am happy and comfortable with the lessons. She provides interesting and engaging lesson materials which are often tailored to my requests and interests. She is also more than capable of improvising and answering unforeseen questions. All in all I think Katla is an excellent teacher and I would recommend her lessons wholeheartedly.

Learning a language from scratch can be challenging and a bit frustrating, but Katla has managed to make our first lessons very fun and productive.
