English preparation for Cambridge EFL exams
I am a South African/Norwegian, born and raised in Cape Town but lived in Oslo for 15 years where I became a Norwegian citizen. I moved back to Cape Town in 2003 after living in Melbourne for a couple of years. Having grown up in CT during the apartheid years and having lived in Norway and Australia for all those years, I am uniquely positioned to understand global language and cultural differences and commonalities. I initially studied a Bachelor of Commerce degree, this followed by a Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Cape Town. I managed a language school in Oslo for over 10 years where I taught and lectured in all spheres of English as a second/foreign language, primarily to business, state organisations and tertiary institutions but also in the State Education Department at the middle-high school level. I did extensive translation and proof reading work for major companies in Norway. I have for the past 15 years also been involved with property development/management and audio recording/balance engineering for classical music production. I returned to live in Oslo in March 2019.
