Hello everybody!

Well, since it's my first time here, I thought I should introduce myself. Here goes;

My name's Yvonne and I turned 20 last November. I was born and raised in Oslo, the capital of Norway. My parents and I moved about a thirty minutes drive from Oslo, to a little town called Vestby. Here I've lived with my parents the last five years.

Since I was six I've had a dream of becomming a teacher, and now I'm in my second year at Oslo University College, attending the four year teacher education programme. The four year programme prepares me for employment as a teacher in compulsory primary and lower secondary school. There I've got subjects like maths, pedagogics, Norwegian and Christianity-, religion- and philosophy. My favourite subject at school was English, so I will take that later on, the same with pedagogics, social studies and Norwegian.

I'm also widly interested in politics, and therefore I'm active in the Norwegian Labour Youth Party, Workers's Youth League. Then there is karate, which I've been doing for over seven years now. And I love downhill-skiing, travelling, drawing, watching films and listen to music. And just to let you know;

I love films from the 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's and I'm a fan of old literature in general. My favourite novels are Jane Eyre, Pride & Prejudice, North & South, Bleak House and so on. I'm a great fan of films in general, loved the new adaption of Jane Eyre btw.

I'm not sure there's more to tell, but just ask if you have any questions. Oh, I'm very fond of languages (as I speak 6 myself) - and Frank Sinatra. smile

Regards, Yvonne

~Forever*Alone~
cool! you peak 6 languages?! i would love to speak two! I'm a terrible person

what languages?

yvonekarate
My mother tongue is Norwegian, then I speak English (obviosuly, known it since I was six - though I know I'm not perfect, I consider myself fluent), Swedish and Danish (as the two languages are quite similar to Norwegian), had German for more than 5 years at school (I speak it fairly well) and I know a bit Spanish (but I won't brag). Would be wrong to say I'm fluent in all six of them, as I consider myself fluent in 4 of them and knowing the two other languages fairly well.

Regards, Yvonne
