  1. Jason

    Good course, I recommend it!

  2. Fawad (verified owner)

    Really good course and I highly recommend it. The course is a nice combination of book reading and speaking with a bit more emphasis on speaking and interaction which makes it even better. The course is also very nicely structured and you can attend it completely virtually.

  3. Olivia (verified owner)

    I’d recommend this course if you have limited time available for studying Finnish. Very good text book (probably one of the best I have seen) and fun exercises. I’m giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because I felt I could have benefited more if the classes were 30 minutes longer.


      Kiitos for you review! The online-lessons are indeed only 60 minutes long.. or short. 😉
      Lovely to learn that you could have studied online 30 minutes longer. I will ponder this!

  4. Karolina

    I highly recommend the course. The teacher is really great – the material is provided in funny and memorable way. There are many exercises to practice and speak with each other. The material was explained very well.

    I have followed Finnish courses here and there some better than others. I registered to this one because it seemed a little different : one hour a week ten times + own work in between. I haven’t been deceived. The teacher keeps us alert and awake, combining exercises, theory and speaking. The text book is also nice. I highly recommend this course.
