Englanniksi - In English


My name is Hanna Männikkölahti, and I am a native Finn, a professional Finnish teacher and a book simplifier. 

If you are new to my blog and you are using a mobile device,  I warmly recommend you to switch into a web version (scroll down the page) as I have all kinds of useful lists and links on the right hand banner. I'm quite sure that I have already written something about the most common grammar topics. However, if you cannot find something that you are looking for, feel free to leave a comment or a question. I hope you'll find this blog useful and share it with your friends. 

If you are looking for an online course, please take a look at Emmi Seppälä's Finking Cap Club. Whenever someone purchases something from Emmi through my page, I get a small percentage. I have written about Emmi in two posts:


What do I do for living?


My main job is to teach Finnish online through my own trade name. In addition to teaching, I simplify novels, teach about easy Finnish and evaluate the Yki exams. I used to teach at the university and a vocal school, but I really enjoy my freedom as and entrepreneur. 

The customer is always correct, and anything my students want to practice, we'll practice. However, these are the most common things I do during my online lessons:

  • I talk about various topics in easy or normal Finnish. Medicine is definitely the hardest one, but luckily I have all the online sources in front of me. (I used to fear talking about sports, but nowadays, thanks to Kimi Räikkönen, I'm quite ok even with that.)
  • I correct texts that my students have written.
  • I read and analyze different texts with my students. Usually they are online texts, work emails, or   passages from novels or articles. 
  • I recommend suitable text books and novels in easy Finnish. I also like to recommend Finnish bands, movies, tv shows, touristic attractions and scenic routes. 
  • I motivate my students to use Finnish at home and at work and carry their study material with them wherever they go.
  • I google things that my students need, such as school lunch menus, available hobbies in different cities, voice teachers, therapists and veterinary services. 
  • I explain grammar rules and share links from this blog. I'd say that I share these posts at least once a week with someone: 


Suomeksi - In Finnish


Moikka! Kiva, että olet löytänyt blogini. Jos haluat hyödyntää blogipostauksiani omassa opetuksessasi, anna mennä vaan. :) Merkitse kuitenkin lähde, niin saan toivottavasti lisää lukijoita blogille ja selkokirjoilleni. (Saan ennen veroja jokaisesta myydystä selkokirjasta noin 3 euroa ja jokaisesta lainasta 13 senttiä.)  Tykkään auttaa muita opettajia, ja osittain sen takia minut valittiin syksyllä 2021 vuoden suomenopettajaksi.

  2. Hi,
    Thanks for your wonderful blog. I am using it to prepare for YKI test. I would like to know which of the verb tenses I would need for the YKI test at intermediate level.

    As I have understood, there are 4 verb tenses in Finnish language.
    Apart from preesens and imperfekti, are there other tenses I should learn?

    Thanks in advance.

  4. Terve Hanna. I just have purchased Tuntematon Kimi Räikkönen in normal language form and the Selkomukautus of the Avain series. I am trying to understand the concept (formula) of the selcokieli from, from the normal language that you are using. Please give me a small example in the Aluksi or even the punainen mies kuala lumpurissa in selkokieli chapter of the book which i havent saw in the normal print book so that i can compare myself.
    Thanks in advance
