Shouldn't it be " ...eller EN lærer."

It could be, but often we actually leave both out and just ask er du elev eller lærer?

As I was taught, all professions are without an article. No "en". Other than that, if it's about a person, its an "en" and almosr never an "et".

That sounds like both a tongue twister and a compliment to a youthful looking teacher. :nD

I actually had that situation. I was substituting for a high school teacher and the kids got really worried that I was a new student and that i would get in a lot of trouble with the teacher for sitting at her desk.

'Eleven' with a long e in the middle. Comes from the French 'élève'.

Umm.. electrical what? I guess you want to say you have a master's degree in electrical engineering and are a student/learner of Danish, no? Let's try it with
"Jeg er kandidat i elektroteknik men studerende i dansk." (eller "danskstuderende")
