Remember Finnish Words: Build your own vocab learning process

Wish you could… 

 

  • reliably remember Finnish words you chose to learn – even the long ones?
  • use the words you know, and learn key words to express yourself more fully?
  • design an enjoyable vocab learning routine that caters to your natural preferences?

 

Introducing: Remembering Finnish Words! A guided course to help you build a vocabulary learning process that works for you – so you can get into the flow of learning Finnish. 

How easily are you able to remember or recognize a Finnish word when you need it?

Your ability to remember and recall vocabulary impacts everything from your willingness and confidence in speaking, to making yourself understood and understanding what others are saying to you. 

Good news: Memory is a skill you can train!

Your current ability is more a reflection of your current process than your actual capacity to remember. Why leave this essential piece of the puzzle up to chance, when it literally holds the key to bringing all of your efforts together? Oh and did I mention, the more enjoyable the process, the better it works 🙂

Remembering Finnish will guide you through the essential pieces of the puzzle when it comes to learning vocabulary and making sure it sticks. This is not about using a “magic method” as much as it is about understanding how brains remember, developing skills in the context of language learning and catering to your brain’s unique preferences. 

 

Just like memory, speaking Finnish is a skill made up of parts. And the importance memory plays in this process is HUGE! Before we can build sentences and play around with words, we need to remember them! Otherwise, any and all effort to learn grammar (patterns) cannot be put to use.

Remembering Finnish is designed to give you the perspective you need to understand how memory works, while also developing the skills you’ll need to put this perspective to use. This isn’t just ‘nice to have’ but essential for you to get into a learning flow, start to see progress and keep the momentum going in a routine!

What people have said about this course…

I’ve been studying Finnish for a few years now and, prior to the course […] I felt I’d tried all the memory and mnemonic strategies under the sun but nothing seemed to keep.

The highlight of the course for me was the introduction of the vocab process circle, where the various aspects of vocabulary learning were laid out in a simple, logical and effective way and which brought all of the aspects and techniques of language learning together.

Whereas beforehand, my way of learning was quite fragmented and in disarray this process brought a fresh perspective and allowed me to see the bigger picture. I now feel that I have gained a second wind for learning Finnish.
– Peter

The course gives you an opportunity to learn not just the “words” but also about yourself-what is my learning style, what words are important to me, what methods work for me…the course gets you to understand the freedom we have to make our own path to learning.

Who am I?

My name is Irina Pravet and I was born in Romania, grew up in Canada and moved to Finland in 2010. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had to learn languages to adapt to the big transitions in life: from Romanian to French to English and more recently, Finnish.

In the process, I’ve come to realize that every single one of us is wired for language and that we deserve to feel at home where we are. In this course, I share perspectives, and help you develop skills and processes to remember vocabulary (the long, similarly sounding words that make up the Finnish language). These then empower us to tap into our inborn ability to learn Finnish!
