Background and activities

I am an assistant professor in Norwegian for foreigners at the Institute of Language and Literature. I have a cand.philol. degree in German studies, and have been working with Norwegian as a second language since 2006.

I teach at all levels at the Norwegian courses for foreign students and employees at NTNU. I am also responsible for the website grammatikk.com, which provides grammatical explanations for students of Norwegian as a second language.

Section coordinator, Norwegian for Foreigners (ISL), 2015-2018.

Assessment examiner, Norwegian language test, since 2017.

 

Academic interests

 

I take a special interest in how to explain complex Norwegian grammar in an easy and practical way for students with little pre-knowledge to grammar and grammatical terminology.
