About Me
italki teacher since Oct 27, 2021
Hi there, my name is Cristian. I am from Argentina and I have been teaching Finnish for over 2 years. Maybe you're thinking: “Why is this guy teaching Finnish if he's not a native speaker?” Well, there’s a back story. My mother is from Finland, but she never spoke Finnish to me growing up (just Spanish). When I was 25 I moved to Finland with almost no knowledge of their ways and language, apart from moi (hello) and sauna (yes, sauna is originally a Finnish word) and after a lot of studying, watching movies, listening to music, making friends and reading every Moomin book I could get my hands on, I’m happy to say that I learned to speak Finnish fluently.

Cristian always adapts to my needs. He is good humoured and makes practising Finnish so much fun. Time passes way too fast.

Cristian tailored the lessons exactly to my needs. I really enjoyed applying some grammar skills that I previously mainly only knew in theory. I already feel more and more comfortable using the passive voice. Thank you very much for this!

My first lesson with Cristian was totally great! He was really friendly and helpful and I felt comfortable to speak. He was interested in my needs in learning the language and trying to adept to them on the spot. His explanations were really clear and I am finally motivated to dive into grammar again! Kiitos paljon!
