Rakel is a very professional teacher and I think she is the best. She connects everything to everyday life and teaches phrases that ordinary Icelandic people use in their speech.

(Rakel) was professional, respectful, and always gave enough useful examples and explanations to ensure she gave answers to my questions. As a doctor who is working in academia, I really enjoyed her teaching methods.
