    Great and useful course

    During the course we learnt point by point of the necessary grammar to finally be able to speak as natively as possible. Taru is a kind teacher, always willing to explain and help you. The classes are online in groups and also in small groups, you always have the possibility of speak, ask, practice. Thanks for everything Taru

    Gentle Deep dive into Finnish Grammar

    This was my first time attending a pure grammar course and needless to say Finnish Grammar is considered one of the toughest on earth. So I was worried but over a period of 10 weeks, this course helped me to take the 1st step to actually learning the grammar and then using it by speaking. Taru kept us enagaged in the class and break out rooms were really helpful. Along with Grammar we also learnt something about Finnish culture. Overall a great course for some one who has only present and past tense knowledge to learn the tenses and new cases.

    Olen yllättynyt siitä, kuinka paljon opin kurssilla. Kiitos Taru!

    Kurssista oli oikein paljon apua. Oppiminen Tarun kanssa on erittäin motivoivaa ja kieliopista tulee elävä kokemus!

    Very friendly course

    I have been doing Finnish courses with Taru for over a year at this point.
    This course didn’t disappoint either – we went through some crucial aspects of the Finnish grammar together in the usual method. Each lesson we were introduced to the piece of grammar, some exampled, then talking with classmates. It’s a simple yet effective way to learn a language.

    I just wish I had a bit more energy to prepare for this course but on the other hand I wish we had gotten more writing assignments as homework.

    Great class

    The course is good. Great material for learning grammer. Exercises and speaking practices in all lessons. I would have liked more practice for homework. But overall great class.
