Case by Case online course

What is it about?

  • The form

    This course will systematically teach you how to form all the Finnish cases.

  • The meaning

    After you learn the form, you will learn the meaning and how you can use each case.

  • Practice

    Practise what you've learnt after each little step. The course offers lots of examples so that you can use the words in context instead of just learning to form the cases.

  • Peer support

    The full course will include a closed Slack community of students old and new. Talk about the course and get peer support in a friendly and safe environment. Emmi will set up regular online consultation hours.

  • Online group lessons

    Join the weekly online classes (Thu 6pm Finnish time) and get your questions answered by Emmi (course can also be completed without them).

Are you looking for a comprehensive explanation of the Finnish case system?

Join us in November 2018!

Finnish is often portrayed as "the world's most difficult language". But really, it's just a different one. It's natural that many questions may arise from the differences. My 14-week online course Case by Case covers one of the key grammar topics in the Finnish language - the case system. The course will help you get a solid overall understanding of what is underneath the overwhelming surface. You get to explore the Finnish case system independently and at your own pace, while always having the chance to turn to your instructor and other students on the course for advice. It's your chance to get a more focused look into an area of Finnish that a general language course may not be able to fully cover because of time limitations. As the course is so specific, it's also a great accompaniment to another course you may be taking. And if there ever was a systematic way to practise accuracy to prepare for language tests like YKI, this is it! And did I mention that you'll always have access to the course materials and the closed online community?

“Anyone wanting to learn Finnish should really save themselves the weeks and months of frustration of trying to learn it on your own and simply enroll in this course. Besides everything being highly detailed yet still easily understandable, you’ll find information here that isn’t anywhere else as well as having access to a wonderful teacher and support group. Finking Cap is simply the best way to learn!”

"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."

"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."

Hi, mi name is Antonio Rubio, I am Spaniard, living in Belgium, and fond of Finland. I am 60 years old and newly retired since the 1st September. Loving a country means to be interested in history, culture, traditions and of course the language. It is said that Finnish is a difficult language. Of course, probably like Spanish for a Japanese. I have studied Finnish from my own for a while, then attending a course in Brussels, and at the same time I found the Finkingcap, where I enrolled first in a “verb type” course and later in the “case by case” course. To be honest the course is a bit tough but not because of the method or approach but simply because of the Finnish grammar and language difficulties. Emmi, is very enthusiastic and reachable for any question or explanation needed. The tools used are quite standard to make people discuss together and share information. I highly recommend the course, but I would say not for a real beginner.

I loved the course Case by Case. I am a very beginner in learning Finnish and I was able to go at my own pace. Emmi is very knowledgeable and she explains ideas clearly. Whenever I had any questions, she got back to me right away. She always checks to make sure her students understand what is being presented.
