Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

I am a native Norwegian speaker and close to native German speaker, having lived in Germany for about 5 1/2 years when I was between 9 and 15 years old.

I took high school education with emphasis on languages (English, German and French). Later exposition to English - e.g. because of a lot of the books used at university being in that language - has of course improved my English.

I also understand Swedish and Danish.
