I like that the course is 1h per week which is suitable and manageable for those who work. Morning hour is also the best time of the day to learn language.
I like that homework is provided every week with a fair amount so I can practice what has been learnt.
I like how the teacher arranged materials in a nice visual manner which is good for learning.
I like the fact that English is used in critical explanations so grammar points are understood better, I myself got many points clarified during this course which had been confused to me for a long while.
However I would like the course more if the content is not too packed, sometimes there felt a rush to get many points covered with a limited timeline, for example interactions in break-out room sometimes were too short to cover all requested activities thoroughly. But this is a minor and does not compromise any thing per my opinion and experience.
Overall the course quality is good and I recommend Taru’s courses for those who consider to learn Finnish language in a just right pace with quality content.
Kiitos for your comment. I will add more time in group discussions and I will try to reduce topics to make the lessons less packed or rushed.
