Why Helsinki? Helsinki has a character quite different from the other Scandinavian capitals, and in many ways is closer in mood (and certainly in looks) to the major cities of eastern Europe. Much of central Helsinki is a succession of compact granite blocks, interacted with characteristic buildings, alongside waters, green areas and glass-covered office blocks as well as shopping centres. The city is hemmed in on three sides by water, and all the things of interest are within walking distance of one another. The streets have a youthful buzz, and the short summer is acknowledged by crowds strolling the boulevards, cruising the shopping arcades and socializing in the outdoor cafés and restaurants.The museums, especially the National Museum and the Art Museum of the Atheneum, reveal the country's folklore and culture.

Most recent student reviews of language schools in Helsinki

Rating: 5

5.0 | 2 reviews

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.
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.
