i found it was a good experience for me to learn finnish. It's a rare speaking language which it's rather strange when you listened to it and also hard to learn but still, i like this language very much!

The Finnish language is very difficult to learn. However I have tried to learn it but I did not end with good results and mainly because I did not spend enough time in the country. Fortunately the majority of people speak English in Finland, that is the reason why I did not have any problems in my everyday life.

Studying with international students and teachers was a good ability to practice my knowledge of English. It becomes more fluent and native afterwards.

There was great effort to get us to learn Finnish with Finnish language and culture lessons which were interesting. Most Finnish people have Finnish as their second language so communication was OK, just a little lack of confidence from some people, I guess they dont get the opportunity to speak to many English people over in Hameenlinna.

everyone in Finland speaks English of some sort, so with a mix of basic Finnish and English you can get around really easily! Kiitos!
