What's the difference between underviser and lærer? Is it supervise?

    lære can mean both learn and teach, while undervise can only mean teach.

    Let's look at the two in the meaning of to teach:

    at lære [NOGEN] [NOGET]

    Jeg lærer børnene hvordan man binder snørrebånd

    I teach the kids how to tie their laces

    Here, but the direct object and the indirect object are required.

    at undervise [NOGEN] [i NOGET]

    Læreren underviser eleverne i samfundsfag.

    Here, you can leave out the direct object ([i NOGET]): Jeg underviser gamle mennesker.

      Can't it also mean 'instructs the children' here ?
