ABOUT STINE

Stine Kjærgaard 

ABOUT

My passion is to help people, who are new in Denmark, to integrate into the Danish society and to ultimately feel at home. I do this by making a comfortable and safe space to learn Danish and about Danish culture and norms and to ask all the questions that you need to get to know the Danes and the culture. 

I started my own school up as I did not feel that the setting in the public language school was optimal for teaching. The classes were too big, I did not have time to give feedback and hear all students talk during a class. Teachers were moved around from one class to another. The focus was mainly on getting the students to pass a test as soon as possible for the school to get money - and not for the students to learn Danish as well as possible. I got tired of it and started my own school. I now offer group classes of max 6 students, semi-private and private classes - and now have time to teach properly. 

I have a masters degree in history and cultural encounters from RUC in which I have focused on integration, culture clashes and the use of language. Thereto, I am now taking a masters degree in teaching Danish as a second language at Copenhagen University.
