Astrid T. Stormorken MD, PhD.
Company: University Hospital Oslo, Norway – Consultant and Specialist in Clinical Genetics
Course: One-to-One

A great week spent at Riversdown House in November 2013!

I am a medical specialist in Clinical Genetics, working at the University Hospital in Oslo, Norway. Norwegian is my native language. My PhD was written in English and I am a co-author of several publications in international medical journals. I have worked 16 months as a consultant at The Royal Marsden Hospital in London. Over the years I have had presentations/lectures at national and international meetings. I came to Riversdown House because I wished to improve my English, both for private and professional use.

The training programme was customized to my needs. I spent one week having mainly face-to-face sessions. I wished to improve my grammar, vocabulary and written English. I did not feel a need to strengthen my work-related vocabulary (medical terms), but to incorporate them in well written and spoken English. The trainers I had were quite professional and were able to relate to my needs. We spent time working on drafts for medical publications, improving grammar and language. I enjoyed reading and discussing newspaper- and magazine articles, and British humour. At my wish we also had some culinary discussions based on selected English menus.

Riversdown House has a great atmosphere. Meals were shared at the main house in good company with fellow students, teachers and Mr and Mrs Lewis. Each day had some social event.

I greatly recommend Riversdown House and the language course to everyone who wishes to improve their English in a professional, friendly and outstanding environment.
