Skills

Skills

Language - Norwegian

Not that good at writing and speaking, but understand it perfectly. A lot of materials in the nursing field is in Norwegian, so I have read many professional articles, and done searches in Norwegian.

Language - Danish

Language - Sign language

I could some sign language, but due to lack of use, I am now limited to a few phrases, or very simple conversations.

Language German

  Understand mostly what is said or written. At the moment I read childrens books and play games in German to improve the level.

Language - English

Also the prefered language, but that is because I have since early age read books in English/ American (books should always be read in the original language), like I prefer watching movies without the subtitles, since it is distracting but also because I tend to notice errors.

Language - Swedish

Have since early childhood had access to Swedish and Norwegian television. I understand just about everything, but am rather reluctant to speak the languages, but due to the similarities in the languages I can usually get by in Danish.

Since I played rollerhockey as a student, I still enjoy putting on the blades and go for the 10-40 km ride.I enjoy repairing computers, and have been able to give away some working computers to the needy.
