Introducing the online course:

Basics of Spoken Finnish - Beginner Grammar & Conversational Skills

"This course is extremely useful and addresses one of the biggest struggles foreigners have when learning Finnish. Most books and online materials teach the standard language, so the shock when interacting with Finns in real-life situations is quite big. But Aleksi’s course shows you exactly how the spoken language works and gives you great tips on how to sound more natural and to understand how the Finns think and express themselves. Plus, Aleksi’s jokes and funny comments make this a very pleasant experience."

- Loredana

"If you, like me, have already spent endless hours on grammar books but still you struggle to say or understand more than "hei", "moi moi" and "kiitos" in a conversation, then this course is the easiest, quickest and funniest way to level up your speaking skills! Psssst, these contents are not covered in regular language courses 😉"

- Marta

"This course is very well structured and wonderfully user friendly. Even an older person like me could easily navigate through it. The course helped me to relate Finnish words, verbs and tenses and to understand Finnish and not to just be a parrot but to understand what I speak."

"Aleksi's two courses offer a great introduction to spoken Finnish even for complete beginners. You learn the most basic verbs, nouns and adjectives needed to have a simple everyday conversation in Finnish without too much focus on grammar and the whole case system. Aleksi is a great teacher and has sound linguistic and pedagogic skills, so you're in good hands during the course.


"I am really enjoying Aleksi's courses ("Speak Finnish Like a Boss" and "Basics of Spoken Finnish") and his YouTube videos.

I've been fascinated with the Finnish language for many years and I have finally decided to truly apply myself to becoming fluent in Finnish. Thanks to Aleksi, I now have a basis for conversing with Finnish speakers and the encouragement to continue my language learning journey."


"As a slow and older learner of Finnish, I think this has been the best short course yet. He gets right to the point for each lesson, which covers the most important subjects for a beginner to learn and get comfortable in actually speaking Finnish. His explanations and notes are very clear and comprehensive, and his approach is very positive, encouraging, and just fun to watch and learn. He also responds very quickly to any questions asked and feedback given, making me feel like I have a real friend in him as well. I do hope to see him sometime when I get over to Suomi again. I highly recommend him and his course!

"If you’re struggling with the tenses and verbs in Finnish, look no further, this is the course for you! Aleksi explains them in a fun way and with examples that totally made me laugh.

Most importantly, after this course, you’ll know how to combine grammar WITH spoken Finnish (you know, because nobody talks standard Finnish in real-life Finland). This is the best course to elevate your newly-found conversational Finnish skills!"

"I have found both of Aleksi's Finnish courses, "Speak Finnish Like a Boss" and "Basics of Spoken Finnish," helpful and easy to work with. He presents materials systematically, in digestible bites, with enough explanation to be helpful without drowning students in complicated details that are not yet important. I have looked at numerous apps and books, and Aleksi has the most thorough and direct instruction on spoken Finnish I have found. The content is useful. Aleksi's YouTube videos (Aleksi Himself) make great supplements for vocabulary and expressions. His enthusiasm and humor make it fun to learn Finnish with Aleksi."
