Do you want to Learn2speakSwedish?

My name is Pär-Johan Goody-Rohdin and I'm a native speaker of Swedish. I teach Swedish classes and do Private Tutoring (face-to-face and online).

I have lived in Australia since 2004. I was a teacher of Swedish for the Swedish School of WA between 2006 and 2017. I’ve been tutoring privately since 2008.

I love to teach Swedish.
