Odd er gründeren bak og lederen for Lingu. Han er opptatt av å utforske nye måter å lære språk på eller undervise på, og sette det i et system som både utfordrer etablerte sannheter og omdefinerer horisonten av hva som er mulig. Hans overbevisning er at teknologi og pedagogikk må flettes sammen slik at språklæring kan bli enklere og mer motiverende i det lange løp. Å lære et nytt språk tar et helt liv, men for et gøy liv det er! Favorittspråk: persisk.

Siri Anette Berge Syvaldsen
I am a committed teacher with an educational background from Art, Social studies, History and Norwegian. I have studied Pedagogy, Adult pedagogy and Norwegian as second language. As a Norwegian teacher I have had the pleasure of teaching for various groups of adults from different countries. I have worked with immigrants following the Introduction program, KPA-courses for employees in different companies and online courses on different levels from A1- C1. Teaching for me is a process. I tailor the courses for each group and the working life for the employees in the KPA-courses. Creativity is always important for me in this process as well as creating an interest in learning for the students. Adult teaching is very interesting and inspiring. I get to meet people from different countries with various cultural backgrounds. It expands my horizon. I am also an Art-teacher and artist. I have taught at many drawing-courses for adults and young people, and experience from Elementary school.
