    Emmi Seppälä

    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.
