Reviews Swedish lessons

“Tusen tack Charlotta för hjälpen med att tala svenska.
Det var kul – genom Skype – att prata svenska med dig om många olika ämnen, men också grammatiken och roliga fakta om Sverige och svenska språket. Jag såg fram emot dina lektioner och njöt av dem.”
Sandra, Nederländerna

“Charlotta was Swedish teacher for our 7y old daughter, they had lessons once a week via Skype. This was our daughters first experience with Skype lessons and we were really impressed with Charlottas attitude and personality, thus the results she could achieve.

The first hesitance of our daughter  almost immediately disappeared and our daughter got engaged and involved, not only she had a lot of fun, but she was learning new vocabulary and getting more and more confident in speaking one of her 4 languages – Swedish.

Charlotta managed to use different kind of methods, so the attention of our daughter never slipped away. Charlottas love towards language teaching could be felt even from distance and that made my daughter always look forward to the lessons. Thank you, Charlotta!”

“I had already acquired basic knowledge of the language before I started with Charlotta’s conversation lessons. During my next visit to Sweden (after several months of lessons), I was able to follow simple conversations and understand what people were talking about on the radio and on tv. She helped to set goals and pinpoint the most relevant aspects of Swedish grammar. This made the learning experience feel quite efficient.”

Eric, Haarlem, the Netherlands.  

“I am very happy to have found Charlotta online. I had a bit of background knowledge in Swedish, but not enough to have a conversation. I now find myself thinking in Swedish when we are practising during our lessons. I have finished my first 10 lessons and will definitely continue after summer break.”

“I had got as far as I could using text books and CDs etc. and really needed a way to practise thinking and speaking Swedish ‘on the fly’. The lessons with Charlotta have been exactly what I needed. It has been amazing how in quite a short time, I am now able to express my thoughts and opinions in Swedish on the many topics we cover during the sessions.

I was initially unsure about Skype, but you quickly forget that you are using it and it’s great to speak to someone who is actually in Sweden.

The lessons are intensive but fun and I get a lot of satisfaction from knowing my language skills are improving so rapidly.
Tack Charlotta!”

David – Macclesfield, UK

“After almost 3 years in Sweden I had tried to learn Swedish many times in many different ways. I had some basics but I would never dare to try to speak.
I decided to take classes with Charlotta so that I could focus 100% on my objective: start to talk. It delivered upon my hopes. After 5 lessons, I already had some confidence to approach people with small sentences.

Charlotta is a fantastic pedagogue and I have regained pleasure in studying Swedish. Finally, I appreciate the flexibility of the Skype classes: I have no excuse not to be able to fit it in my busy schedule.
Tack Charlotta!”

“Först och främst tack igen för språkkurs. Det var underbart och du hade en del tålamod även med en rörig studerande som jag. Jag gillade det faktum att vi kunde ansluta ordförråd och grammatik till många andra språk, och i varje fall var du alltid exakt och tydlig. Jag försöker fortfarande att studera … det kommer att bli lite svårt eftersom jag studerar tyska mycket, men hey, jag hade en bra lärare! :)”

“I’ve had a great time learning Swedish. Charlotta learned me to start a conversation or make a telephone call. Also she thought me about Swedish habits and History.”

“I am exhausted when I think of every smartphone, tablet, or computer program that I browsed through or tested when looking for a program that my children could use to learn Swedish. Most Swedish language learning programs had my children either learning from an antiquated program that had been updated to digital, listening to impersonal recordings, or memorising hours of useless vocabulary.

From the beginning Charlotta had my children engaged by listening about their daily lives and then personally creating a language learning environment that they could relate to. She taught them words to express their own thoughts and ideas instead of regurgitating flash-card material. Both her tailored lessons and friendly attitude has made learning Swedish enjoyable for my children.

Charlotta’s flexible schedule has made it easy to find the most convenient time for our busy lives to fit in Swedish lessons and after several months of learning our children aren’t showing any signs of slowing down.

I would enthusiastically recommend her language learning services.”

“I have been through SFI and SAS and have done several courses at the FU (Folkuniversitetet). But there is a world of difference between studying a language academically and actually being able to converse freely. Particularly as a native English speaker when it is so easy to switch to English.

Finding Charlotta was a turning point for me. It was a critical time as I was starting to work in Sweden. I was able to fit the lessons around a busy schedule and they were good fun! Charlotta answered all my questions and improved my grammar, pronunciation and fluency.

My son had also been reluctant to speak Swedish at school. It was an absolute joy to hear him chatting away to Charlotta in Swedish and see his confidence improving. I highly recommend Charlotta!”

“Charlotta was a delight to work with.  She helped me understand many puzzles of Swedish grammar and pronunciation.  Her explanations were clear and focused and appropriate for my (elementary) level of Swedish understanding.  A friendly, knowledgeable coach to guide expats in navigating the linguistic and cultural quirks of Swedish.”

“I’ve never taken skype lessons before, since I found Globatris and decided to give them I try. I have to say that they were even better than I thought at the first time. The lessons were very dynamic, focused on the topics you like the most. I felt myself very comfortable with Charlotta, she has been dedicated to every lesson, and you’ll have always any topic to chat or discuss with her. I felt she loves her work and that’s always a good point! I have discovered new Swedish expressions and learned more and more about the Swedish culture.  And the best for me, is that I’ve realize that now I can speak Swedish language more fluently than before. Tack så jättemycket Charlotta!”

“When I started with the lessons from Charlotta I only had basic knowledge of Swedish. After one year I could speak Swedish quite fluently all thanks to her lessons. Charlotta zooms in on topics you are interested in and let’s you learn Swedish by letting you talk, write and read about those topics. This is a really fun and natural way of learning a language. Charlotta is very flexible in the time slots for her lessons. For me with 2 young children that is a big advantage. Her personal touch, excellent knowledge about teaching a language and great personality makes her lessons worth every penny.”

“Sedan många år studerar jag redan svenska, men att prata vanlig enkel vardagssvenska är inte min starkaste sida. Undervisning över Skype var ett perfekt sätt att lära sig ‘snacka’ på svenska. Jag studerade i förväg ett ämne, t.ex. tittade på SVT (Landet Runt, och pratade om programmet över Skype. Det är ett fantastiskt sätt att lära sig prata, och har fått reda många nya saker. Charlotta tar hänsyn till elevens möjligheter, om jag sa något fel var det inget att skämmas för, hon förbättrade på ett professionellt sätt. Varje gång kunde jag prata om en sak som jag inte riktig begrep, på svenska så klart! Jag funderar fortsätta kursen till hösten.”

där från mars eller april. hur som helst detta var inte möjligt utan din
hjälp. du gav mig förtroende och mod att prata svenska och inte vara rädd
att göra misstag. du lärde mig hur jag använder språket i vardagssituationen.
