Jeanette worked a lot with me on pronunciation and day-to-day Swedish, so when I visited Sweden in January, people spoke to me in Swedish, and on one occasion, when I asked a mobile phone representative to switch to English, he asked me why we needed to speak in English! As an educator myself, I highly recommend The Swedish Teacher. Their high-quality instruction is customized to each person’s needs and is more affordable than most person-to-person services.
