Founder & Director
I am Dr. Anneli B. Haake. I am a native Swedish teacher and the founder and director of Swedish Made Easy. I’m the author of Teach Yourself Complete Swedish, I create online Swedish courses and I teach online. I can help you with every aspect of the Swedish language, from basic beginners to advanced business/academic. I am particularly passionate about developing speaking and listening skills.
As a Swedish teacher, I have taught over 20,000 hours since 2005 to adult learners in Europe, Asia and US. I have also over 10 years experience of translating, subtitling and proof reading, both English -> Swedish and Swedish -> English, and I have worked as a language tutor at Middlesex University for their BA Interpreting and Translation students.
In 2019 and 2020, I was the Swedish Teacher in the BBC Two TV-programme Twinstitute.
I am based in Brighton, UK (and US occasionally), but I was born and bred in Sweden (Stockholm and Dalarna) and lived there all my life until I was 25. When I am not teaching Swedish online, I make music (Janis), board dogs with my husband in Brighton, help other language teachers setting up their own businesses.
