Hanna-Klara Thurfjell (Beginners I and II)
Hanna-Klara Thurfjell is a Swedish transplant who settled in Chicago 10 years ago. Born and raised in Örebro, Sweden, she moved to New York City in 2003, received her Bachelor’s Degree in English Language and Criticism from Hunter College in 2008, and her Master’s from DePaul University in 2012. She is currently back in school working towards a second Master’s and is thrilled to teach in her first language here in Andersonville. Her teaching approach strives to make Swedish more approachable and fun, whether you’re establishing a connection to your roots, looking to learn a new language, or want to learn more about Swedish culture.


REFUND POLICY: Class fee must be paid before or at the time of the first class. A tuition refund is available up to two days after the date of the first class. Tuition is not refundable after this time.  Please call the Museum at 773.728.8111 if you have questions. Reservation can be made at the Museum or here
