Consultant Profile

Josef Olgac

Language Consultant & Swedish High School Teacher

About

Over many years, I have studied and worked in Spain, Italy, Turkey, the UK and Germany. My experiences abroad paved the way for further language and literature studies when I returned to my hometown, Stockholm. My studies at the university eventually led to a Master of Education and I began work as a high school teacher. I teach, translate and consult for people interested in languages and cross-cultural communication.
