  • "I completed this course in 2009, and would highly recommend it to all foreign employees looking to integrate fully into the Finnish workplace. The impact this training had on my confidence and ability to speak and write proper Finnish was dramatic. There's still plenty of room for my Finnish language skills to improve, but I feel strongly that the progress I made in the space of three weeks was more than I could have hoped for at the time."
