"Emmi´s Case by Case course is an interactive learning program for studying the cases quirks, while having easy access to Emmi and the course community. If you want to self-study at your own pace with being able to keep all the course material to revisit anytime, this might be the right course for you! Additionally there are regular group feedback sessions, in which Emmi makes sure to answer all the unanswered questions and use practical exercises to test your knowledge."

“…if the trial material is anything to go by, your courses will be the absolute best out there for learning Finnish, you should be very proud of what you’ve made…”

The Finnish Verb Type Course

"Emmi’s Verb Type Course gives a comprehensive overview of all the verb types at once while each lesson takes you through detailed explanations of the conjugation rules. There are also plenty of fun exercises to help solidify those rules. I wish I had this when I first started learning Finnish!"

"Apart from simply being a super nice and kind person (as I met her personally) Emmi is extremely professional. And by that I don't only mean her teaching skills and obvious language knowledge (she speaks several), but also her attitude to the things she does. She's always punctual, strives to provide the best service and finds explanations for hard linguistic stuff. I'd definitely recommend Emmi as an instructor and her courses as a proper way of learning Finnish language."

    Moi ja tervetuloa! My name is Emmi and I'm from the beautiful city of Helsinki, Finland. I have always loved languages (I speak 5!) After I finished high school, I worked and studied abroad for a good while, and I never, ever thought I'd become a teacher. However, the 8 years I spent living and travelling in different countries gave me a strong desire to help other people achieve their goals via languages. So, I ended up taking a TEFL course (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) in Madrid in 2014. One of the best decisions I ever made! Since then, I have been teaching languages offline and online while working on my Master's degree (English philology) and teacher qualification at the University of Helsinki. I created Finking Cap so I could help Finnish learners from all over the world make sense out of the language. Finnish is such a unique language that students can easily feel overwhelmed. I want to make sure that Finnish eventually makes sense to you and that you can take charge of improving your Finnish skills every day. About the way I teach: I'm very pragmatic and I do what works. I don't focus on a specific theory about language learning. Even though I teach a lot of grammar, I invest heavily in "making Finnish make sense", and I focus on topics that I believe are going to be useful in the long run.
