italki teacher since Jul 29, 2020
Hi! I'm Helene and I'm a native Danish person fluent in English. I have taught Danish on iTalki for one year thus far. I'm really excited to help you learn! I'm very interested in teaching and meeting people from around the world. I have a master's in social anthropology, and I hope to one day go around the world doing human rights activism.
Me as a Teacher
I am a laid back, patient and informal tutor who really wants to support your language learning journey in the best way possible. There won't be any strict teacher vibes here! I believe that positive encouragement is the best tool to help you learn and improve.
I do not teach complete beginners, but please check back with me when you have been learning Danish for at least 6 months. Then I'm happy to help!
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are conversation based so I focus on having natural, everyday conversations. I am happy to bring teaching materials to provide ideas and support for our conversations, such as example sentences on a given topic or pictures with vocabulary sets. If you prefer, we can also just talk freely about the topics you want to practice.
I know my way around grammar, but in my experience it is best learned in relation to real conversations. Therefore, I don't do grammar exercises but I am happy to explain grammatical rules if it comes up in our conversations.
All in all, I do conversation practice in an informal but effective manner.
