Lene Skaug

Lene Skaug, sole-operator of www.norsk.com.au, offers Norwegian language tuition and NAATI recognised translations. I'm a native Norwegian speaker with more than 30 years' experience. I have my teacher qualification from Norway and I completed a Masters Degree in Applied Linguistics (TESOL) at Macquarie University, Sydney in 2000.

I started teaching Norwegian in Sydney in 2002; offering Norwegian Language Courses for beginners to advanced learners at the Norwegian Church Abroad, Sjømannskirka, as well as offering private tuition. I started teaching online in 2012 and at the moment I have students from 15 to 80 years old, some live in Australia, some in Norway, and sometimes people are located in other countries.

I became a NAATI recognised translator in Australia in 2004 and I'm specialising in documents for Visa Purposes, Education and Employment, Social Work, Travelling, Culture and Art. I have also worked on projects such as the Foreign Correspondent on ABC TV and I have written resources for the Norwegian digital language platform BASAR for Cappelen Damm, Norway's largest publisher.

I'm passionate about teaching, languages and culture, travelling and tourism, and I'm looking forward to expand my business in these areas in the years ahead. In my spare time I'm an avid reader and I love going for beach walks, doing yoga, visiting a pool or an art gallery.  I will soon get a blog up on my website, hoping to write more about learning Norwegian, travelling and Norwegian culture.
