Additional information
Positive aspects of school
It wasn't a school. I lived with the teacher and we had lessons in her home. She was extremely organized, cordial, good-humored, and delightful to be around. I enjoyed her and very much appreciated her ability to communicate with me both as peer and as a teacher of an elementary student.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The location is a 40-minute bus journey to the center of Helsinki. I made the journey on my own twice, but I did not miss getting out into the town every day because it was a lot of work paying attention to the language study, and I enjoyed watching nature programs and the news with my teacher, and she explained the details to me, and I got to learn both about Finland and some new words.
Other comments
This experience exceeded my expectations. I think it's a risk to take an unknown student into your home for a week, and Arja was wonderful on every count: as a teacher, as a human being, as a hostess. It was a perfect match; we have a lot of similar interests and tastes, which made it a pleasure to live in her home for a week and to receive a good foundation for carrying my study of Finnish forward.
