    Great teacher, very productive course, if you start following and doing whatever teacher asks you to do so, then your progress could be considerably different, tasks and teaching method was very nice to follow, I had taken some courses previously, but this course was most exciting and inspiring. Most importantly, you can also continue with your teacher for the following steps towards the required level you aim to reach.

    Taru intersperses each class with a healthy amount of conversation + learning grammar/fundamentals, which has really helped me as I’m keen to just speak more Finnish.
    If you’re ok to do some independent study each week (approx 30 – 60 mins) you can make a lot of progress studying with her! I especially appreciate her patience in answering our questions, and introducing us to relevant finnish pop culture through music and jokes. Thank you Taru!

    I really enjoyed the class and also learnt many things. The assigments are varied in nature, online games, listening to popular Finnish songs, standard exercises in book. We got to practice speaking Finnish with our fellow classmates. Overall I feel more confident in using short Finnish sentences and also understand them. I highly recommed Taru and tämä kurssi in tosi hyvää ja Taru on mahtava opettaja

    This class war really fun and I learnt a lot. Compared to my former classes, the students got a lot of opportunities to really talk and use Finnish, which made me more confident in using the language in every-day life. Not only could I progress my Finnish knowledge, but I also learnt a lot about Finnish culture, music, people and nature. It’s a very hands-on class, with the possibility to study in a quite flexible way: If there is a week with less time to invest, no problem at all. But of course, the more you invest, the more you learn, it’s up to you. The teacher Taru has a great sense of humour and never lets an question unanswered. Thank you very much Taru and see you in the next class!
