She opened her own dance school in 1934 and became famous as a dance teacher as well. She was born as Brita Gemmel on March 20, 1902 in the Rock of Skåne, Sweden. She grew up in Stockholm from the age of six. She was married three times and outlived all her husbands. Her first husband was Ragnar of Geijerstam (1901-1946). A few years after his death, she married his cousin, Bengt van Geijerstam. She continued as a dance teacher until age 75. She died at age 101 years old on September 9, 2003 in Bromma, Sweden.

The purpose of this book is to help Swedish speakers learn English and to help English speakers learn Swedish. To have a translation as close as possible to the original is the most useful. There are several books about Winnie-the-Pooh in Sweden. Swedish children call their teddy bears “Nalle Puh”. Nalle Puh is a traditional name for Winnie-the-Pooh in Sweden. It is not just the name given to it by the translator. The rabbit is Kanin. Christopher Robin is Christoffer Robin.

Persian is the language of Iran and Tajikistan as well as parts Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is also called Farsi in Iran and Dari in Afghanistan. It is also spoken in Uzbekistan, Bahrain, Azerbaijan, Iraq, Russia and New York. In the written form, many people who speak other languages read and write in Persian. Most Pashto speakers write in Persian because the written form of Pashto is difficult and not well known. Persian was at one time the main literary language throughout the Middle East. There are an estimated 110 million speakers of Persian in the World today.

Almost all of the languages of the Middle East have borrowed heavily from Persian. Persian words can be found in Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali and just about all the languages of India. Many of these languages use a modified Persian alphabet.
