Chatting with Gimara
The wonderful language learning community Gimara interviewed me yesterday! I talked to Gimara's Marja Ahola about teaching and learning Finnish, about my new online course in August and about building a small teaching business. The video is in Finnish, but Finnish subtitles are coming up to help you follow along if you should wish to!
Gimara is a great resource for learning Finnish. They regularly post free video lessons for different levels from beginner to advanced on their various social media accounts, especially YouTube and Facebook.
Time for another personal (and professional) update!
I've recently launched my very first publicly available online course (I've been doing some form of online teaching since 2010, and of a lot more of it in 2020, like most of my colleagues). It's a course for intermediate to upper intermediate (B1-B2) students and focused on speaking and listening comprehension. You can read all about it here in English and in here in Finnish.
More online courses are coming up later this year, the first of which will be aimed at students preparing for the intermediate level YKI test or just wishing to get from A2 to B1, starting in September 2020. I'll keep you updated!
