Hi! I'm Sigga Nordgaard, and it is no lie when I say that helping competent foreign professionals like you - or your colleague - to achieve a confident and active Danish at work and outside work, is one of the things that drive me most!
During my almost 10 years teaching dansk to foreigners, I have helped managers, sales managers, researchers, bank people, work environment consultants, web developers, finance people, architects, entrepreneurs and many others handle work meetings, phone conversations, job interviews, email writing, speaking to nursery and school teachers, ordering at restaurants, buying at the bakery and the daily small-talk at work - in a much more active and confident Danish.
It drives me to make a difference and hear my clients tell me about their small everyday life victories, like:
"I have always spoken English only, but when I, the other day during a work meeting, suddenly said something in Danish, my colleagues looked at me really amazed because they had no idea exactly how much Danish I know" or "We talked to the babysitter yesterday - only in Danish!"
These victories makes it aaaaaall worth it!
Even though we Danes are really good at English, it is important to be able to get by in Danish in your everyday life if you want to thrive in your new country and feel part of the society.
Learning Danish is a process that takes time, determination and effort. But no matter where you - or you colleague (if you are an HR worker) - are in the process, I am ready with my "tool box"!
Call or write me and I will get back to you very soon with a suggestion on how I can help you towards a confident and active Danish.
