The Speech Doctor Olle Kjellin himself has about 40 years of experience teaching the Swedish language. But he is fluent in English and Japanese, and fairly fluent in Russian and German, somewhat less in French and SerboCroatBosnian. Has also studied Tibetan, Tamil, Tagalog, Tuscarora, Chinese, . . .

He has a MA in linguistics and modern languages (Stockholm University, 1972) , a PhD / Doctor of Medical Science in Speech Physiology (Faculty of Medicine, Tokyo University, 1976; thesis defended in Japanese) , and is a Medical Doctor (Uppsala University, 1983) with practicing expertise in radiology, particularly of the speech and swallowing apparatus, as well as in memory, learning, and memory disorders (dementia etc. )
