Before coming to Citylit five years ago, Helle taught for 16 years at Morley College and has also been teaching at the FCO and various other London based language schools. Helle originally trained as a classical singer and is passionate about music, art, communication and languages. Apart from her native Danish, she speaks Italian, German, French, Swedish and some Russian. With her musical background, Helle puts particular emphasis on pronunciation, but also on grammar and the underlying structure of languages. Furthermore she likes to explore the history and culture which connects Denmark and Great Britain. ‘I love to stimulate curiosity and enthusiasm, seeing my students progress to become able to communicate in the target language. I pride myself on creating an atmosphere of inclusiveness in class where nobody feels left out and everybody is enjoying themselves. That is the perfect environment for learning!’
