Hi everyone! / Hej allihopa! My name is Sara, I'm 31 years old and I live in Istanbul, Turkey. In Sweden we grow up surrounded by English so I've learnt that from an early age. I've also taken German lessons in school, but moreover I lived in Tanzania for nearly one year and studied Swahili. The past seven years I've been learning Persian/Farsi and now that I've moved to Turkey I'm trying to learn Turkish. So as you can tell, culture and language is a big interest of mine, and I love to connect with people from all over the world. Other interests I have is hiking, reading, boardgames and sipping drinks from a rooftop bar.

Always a pleasure! I’ve studied with Sara for 3 months now and she has helped me improve my Swedish a lot. Sara knows how to create a relaxed environment, so I feel confident to speak and lessons are entirely in Swedish. We use the textbook Rivstart (B1+B2) as support material. Sara writes new words and sentences in a Google Doc document, so I can review my lessons any time on my smartphone. Sara enjoys teaching and it’s always fun to learn Swedish with her. Tusen tack Sara!

Sara is an outstanding teacher. She matches our conversations around the topics I'm interested in and want to learn about. Each discussion is upbeat and constructive; if I make a mistake, Sara corrects me supportively, and after a few great lessons I'm already speaking in full sentences and feeling ready for more knowledge! Every lesson is enjoyable, developmental and precise, and my Swedish has improved so rapidly. Thank you Sara!

Sara is a great teacher, very personable and easy to chat with. Strikes a nice balance between unstructured conversation in Swedish and the use of formal reading material and exercises. We started working together after I’d been learning Swedish for two weeks and already after only four meetings or so we were speaking primarily extemporaneous Swedish for the first 15-30 minutes of our lessons, so if you put in the work you will be rewarded! She is very tolerant of my somewhat slow Swedish and has helped me make the transition from speaking a lot of Swenglish to primarily just Swedish when we speak extemporaneously.
