Tervetuloa Finking Cap Clubiin!
I’m Emmi, your online Finnish instructor. I’m delighted to have you here and hope that you’ll enjoy what my membership site has to offer.
At the moment, we’re meeting up online regularly to speak Finnish. It’s very casual, and we’re all very friendly! You can find the schedule on the right side of the forum or by going directly to the calendar. Usually, we have a Beginners/False Beginners session on Tuesday evening and a more advanced level session on Wednesday evening.
What would you like to study? Here’s what Finking Cap Club has to offer
- Grammar courses – This is where all the grammar and language courses live.
- Noniin! – “Noniin!” is what I often say in class when we start something new or move on to more practical things. In this category, you will go beyond grammar lessons and theory, and you’ll focus on one real-world topic at a time! There used to be a couple of categories that had a lot of overlap in terms of “real-world Finnish”, so I decided to combine them all and put them into one category. Anything that is NOT related to pure grammar or language courses, will be found under “Noniin!”.
Need support or have a question?
Head to the Community to talk to other Finnish learners and ask anything about the Finnish language. I’ll be around to answer questions, but if you know how to help another learner, please feel free to answer their question!
It’s important to note that a lot of the content at Finking Cap Club (apart from the Short Stories) is not aimed at any learner level specifically like textbooks are. The goal is to help you learn Finnish using real-word, everyday language that you encounter in Finland, which means that you may not find the same simple textbook phrases in the Finnish Content section as you would in a language textbook. If you are a complete beginner, I strongly recommend also following a Finnish textbook like Oma Suomi 1 (Tapaninen & Kuparinen), From Start to Finnish (White) or Suomen Mestari 1 (Gehring & Heinzmann).
I hope you enjoy learning Finnish with me. Please do ask in the community if you have any questions about the site, especially if it could benefit others as well, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
