Swedish teacher Anneli Haake

Hej, jag heter Anneli.
I'm your Swedish teacher!

My name is Dr. Anneli Beronius Haake. I’m a native Swedish teacher and the founder and director of Swedish Made Easy. I’m also a course creator.

At Swedish Made Easy, I create online Swedish courses and I also offer Swedish lessons online. As a Swedish teacher, I have taught over 20,000 hours since 2005 to adult learners in Europe, Asia and US. 

My particular interests are pronunciation and speaking confidence, but I can help you with every aspect of the Swedish language. If you’re a beginner or if you’re much more advanced, I’ll take care of you and help you improve your Swedish. 

Books, TV, music and dogs

In 2018, I published the book Teach Yourself Complete Swedish, which is now a bestseller among Swedish course books. 

Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked as a translator and also as a subtitler for films and tv-programmes.  Moreover, I also work 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.

Brighton (UK) is where I’m based, 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.

Teaching Associate

Hej, jag heter Daniel. I'm your Swedish teacher!

My name is Daniel, born and raised in the Swedish city of Gothenburg. Since 2008, I have been working in education,  helping students of all ages to reach their potential. Being multilingual (Swedish, English, Polish), I love languages and teaching Swedish in particular.

I’ve been teaching Swedish in the UK since 2013, and I have taught over 5,000 hours. Regardless of the level you are at, I tailor the lessons to your specific needs.

I love helping people read and write better

One of my main passions is helping learners to read and write better. In addition, I run our online language café, where you can improve your confidence in speaking.

I also teach children and young people online. This might be children and young people living abroad who need flexible tuition in Swedish. 

I'm an author and a translator

Beyond teaching, I work as a translator; both English -> Swedish and Swedish -> English. One of my translated works is Short Stories in Swedish for Beginners (2020).

I’m also a published author (Steampunk FairytalesThe Clause Conundrum) and I love writing (and watching football!). I have two children and I live in London.

Hej, jag heter Stefan. Jag är expert på uttal!

I’m Stefan Holmström, and I often collaborate with Swedish Made Easy. 

Projects I’m involved with include the course Speak Like a Swede, and I also create workshops and events on Swedish pronunciation. 

However, I’m not a Swedish teacher! Instead, I’m a professional opera singer and singing teacher. 

I'm an opera singer and voice trainer

I’ve been working with singers of all genres and levels using Estill Voice Training (EVT) as a baseline for safe and sustainable voice use. As a part of this, I offer online vocal training and workshops from my studio in Brighton (UK).

In the past, I’ve performed many different roles in opera, musical theatre and concerts in Sweden, Norway, Ireland, Germany and Greece.

Here in the UK, I’ve performed at  venues like Glyndebourne, Grange Park Opera, Opera Holland Park. In addition, I’ve also been a member of the Phantom of the Opera Company at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London.
