A new course: Read 'Ei kertonut katuvansa' in easy Finnish

Here's something that I've wanted to try out for a while:

  • A Finnish course where we only read and write
  • A course that is early in the morning
  • A course where we'll read a novel in easy Finnish


    How does it work?


    • We'll read one easy Finnish novel in one month. 
    • We'll meet on Google Docs twice a week for 30 minutes at a time. At 7.00 in the morning. (Finnish time, UTC+2)
    • We'll never see or hear each other. (Ok, I will organize a video chat afterwards, but you don't have to come if you don't want to.)
    • We'll communicate through writing.
    • You can come and go as you want to, and you can read the notes and conversations afterwards, if you miss a class.
    • You can be as active or as passive as you want, and you can be completely anonymous, if you want to. 

    The novel


    We'll read Ei kertonut katuvansa by Tommi Kinnunen. Here's my landing page for the book with vocabulary, questions and sample pages: https://www.privatefinnishlessons.com/eikertonutkatuvansa
