What my students say...


"I LOVE your lessons!!! You are a gifted teacher!!"


"I love the online course! So happy I signed up "

Are you excited to learn Finnish but you just haven't seemed to be able to get started?
Most resources weren't built with this one important goal in mind: getting you to actually speak Finnish faster.

They are showcasing standard Finnish like a grand buffet table. That's why it feels like you don't have time to learn Finnish.

After combining the best practices I have from learning six languages, finding solutions to the struggles of my 9000+ students, and reviewing dozens of Finnish learning resources, the answer is clear.
You need a learning path to the quick wins and the simple structures of spoken Finnish. A system that is:

laser-focused on getting you to speak Finnish 

keeping you on track even amid spilled coffees and grumpy mornings 

set up by someone who understands how your brain works


A structured learning path with 35+ video lessons 

Spoken Finnish hacks and motivation builders 

Powerful memory trick techniques to remember words and phrases 

A checklist to keep yourself accountable

A 25-page workbook full of exercises 

A grammar cheatsheet to learn key structures fast 

A final quiz + A1 level certificate

Free bonus pack (10+ travel & language video lessons) - worth 35 USD

Free kick-off live webinar with me (Varpu)

What my students say...


"Dear Varpu, when I arrived to Finland I was only able to speak three words in Finnish (kiitos, kavi, pulla). So I was happy to see your online course and booked it. The structure and the lessons are excellent and easy to work with. Thanks to the course I can speak more now, maybe not everything perfect but with fun. Kiitos paljon!!!"


"I know you must be getting plenty of well-deserved kudos for your language modules. My background is technical communications and online learning. Mostly I write about cultural history now, but wanted to take a minute to tell you how much I enjoy your design and presentation of Finnish. It’s so well done and beautifully produced.Thanks so much for helping me in my learning! You’ve done a wonderful job and it’s helping me! Kiitos!"

What my students say...

"Hei Varpu, I live in Helsinki and this is truly one of the nicest courses I have come across. What I am learning in this course is really close to life and it won’t teach you unnecessary things I will never need or use. You are such a kind person with the most gentle voice, which makes me feel like I totally got this."


"The course was superb, absolutely excellent, very creative and quite thorough without getting hung up on all kinds of conjugations etc. And the workbooks complemented the videos very well."



  • I don't know how to get started with learning Finnish, what should I do?
    This course is designed for beginners just like you. It helps you to keep laser-sharp focus on the things you need to know to build short sentences you will remember.
  • Does this course include spoken Finnish?
    Yes! This course focuses on getting you to speak spoken Finnish. It's our Number One goal. You'll learn all the structures as you hear them in real life in Finland, not just the textbook version.
  • Does this course work on mobiles?
    It works great on mobiles. You'll have access to the course across any and all devices you own. I highly recommend watching the lessons on your mobile and leveraging the idle time you have on the go.
  • I’m not technical at all. How am I able to be in an online course?
    You just need to login in and then select a class. I promise, it's super easy. I have students of all ages, some of them are well over 70. Btw, language learning is a fantastic brain exercise for any age.
  • I want to write and learn on paper. I don’t do digital.
    I love hearing that. This course comes with printable resources, and I highly recommend that you print them out. Research shows that taking hand-written notes helps you learn better and, at the same time, you’ll have me on video explaining everything to you.
  • I have tried other Finnish resources and I didn’t learn anything. I’m scared I’ll fail again.
    I don’t want to give a library of Finnish phrases and just to leave you venturing by yourself, getting lost and confused. Nor, do I want to stuff you to the gills with grammar systems. This course pushes you through a learning path, teaching you versatile structures that work great in spoken Finnish. Aka short adaptable sentences that you will remember.
  • What if this course stinks?
    I’m sure you’ll find this course helpful. Thus, you'll have 30 days from the date of purchase to get a full refund if you don't like it.
  • Is this a monthly fee?
    No. This is a one-time payment, and you get lifetime access to the course as well as its future updates. If you know a Finn, you probably know this: we warm up slowly, but once you make a Finnish friend, they’re there for life.
  • When does the course start and finish?
    This course is a completely self-paced online course - you can start when you have the time. You'll always have instant access to all course materials.
  • What happens after I purchase the course?
    Once you purchase this course, you'll get immediate access into the course. Head to your email inbox, and you'll see an email confirmation with your invoice and my support emails with links to this course.
  • Varpu, am I able to control the sound and video?
    Yes. You can always speed up or slow down my speech, using the gear icon. You'll have all the normal functions with the video. Play, pause etc...
  • What currency is the course fee in?
    The course fee is in US dollars, and you purchase the course in US dollars. It's super easy to buy at the checkout. You can use a credit card or Paypal. These companies will make the currency exchange for you after the purchase.
  • How much are the taxes?
    The checkout will automatically identify if and how much you need to pay taxes.
  • What is EU VAT number at the checkout?
    If you have a company with a EU VAT number, you can add in the number and get the course with 0% VAT.
