Many of us join beginners’ courses only to be overwhelmed by the amount of grammar taught and uncertain about how to use what we’ve learned. What if there were a simpler, more enjoyable way of learning? There is!
This course is designed to focus on the most important pieces, while also helping you use what you learn in your daily life right away. We’ll combine thought-provoking grammar lessons with practical language coaching to help you create fun ways of learning outside the class as well. Start small but practical and watch the impact this has on joy, ease and progress.
The purpose of this course is to guide you in starting to produce Finnish sentences in small steps, inspired by your everyday surrounding environment. In order to do this, we simplify things but go deep, versus spreading ourselves too thin over too many topics.
Course prerequisites: the ability to read the Finnish alphabet and pronounce the sounds of the Finnish language. If you struggle with sounds like ä, ö, y and/or double letters (like aa, ee, ii, oo, uu, ää, öö, yy, kk, ll, mm, nn, pp, rr, ss, tt) check out The Finnish Soundscape before taking this course.

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 teach the basics behind simple Finnish sentences, alongside what you need to actually use what you learn. As someone who learned Finnish in my 20s, I still remember life before the partitive case and what it was like to learn Finnish grammar for the first time.
Over the years, my understanding has deepened greatly and I now teach in the way I wish I’d been taught from the beginning. I believe this knowledge, skills and practices empower us to tap into our inborn ability to learn Finnish!
