We are an international language training company offering private language classes throughout the world. Our clients, either individuals or companies, typically look for tailor made training at their homes or offices or online. They always tell us their training needs before they book with us and it is our job to recruit the best possible tutor - we hope it is you!
Currently, we are urgently seeking for a Danish language online teacher to teach one of our clients. Teacher selected will work from home. Please note that we would give full training on the use of the software but you should:

From Tim Jensen, Danish American Archive and Library: I’m replying in regard to Mark Nussle’s inquiry last month about Ron Bro and his poems.
DAAL (Danish American Archive and Library) has materials about Ron Bro, his ancestors and descendants. Niels Bro and Laura Bork immigrated to Iowa from Jutland in the early twentieth century and settled near Audubon, Iowa. They had twelve children, Ron being among the youngest. The materials at DAAL include extensive correspondence, obituaries, legal documents, memoirs, genealogy of the ancestors in Denmark and stories of relatives who immigrated to the States. Much of this material has been scanned into DAAL’s digital archive. For further information go to DAAL’s web site (danishamericanarchive.com), click on the Search tab at the top of the screen and then click on Search Catalog. In the Find window in the upper left key in “Niels and Laura Bro and family." Quotation marks are not needed.
DAAL also has a copy of Selected Poems by Ronald D. Bro. The book contains roughly 70 poems, including depictions of life in the northern US, in Africa (where he worked on two occasions), reflections on his Danish heritage (including some Danish phrases), as well as some lighter poems, and a section on “points of view.” The book was self-published in Hayward, Wisconsin, in 2015. It’s an enjoyable little book.
Added by the DAHS web coordinator: You can also order Ron Bro’s book through the Museum of Danish America gift shop. Go to
