Hi there, my name is Cristian. I am from Argentina and I have been teaching Finnish for over 3 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.

Puhun suomea joka päivä Cristianin kanssa ja oppitunnit auttavat minua paljon. Suomen kielen oppiminen ei ole helppoa, mutta meillä on aina hauskaa tunneillamme ja hän inspiroi minua oppimaan perheeni kieltä

Tuve una clase de prueba y me encantó. Soy una persona que le gusta aprender con estructura, además de que fines es una lengua muy diferente, me gusta el orden y me he sentido muy cómoda con Cristian por el método que tiene para enseñar. Lo súper recomiendo. ¡Que ganas de tener ya la segunda clase!

Great first practice lesson, Cristian was able to assess very quickly the goals and how we could move forward for the following classes. I really enjoyed this introduction to Finnish.

Cristians passion for the Finnish language is inspiring and he is the proof that learning this language isn't only impossible, but even enjoyable!
