Teachers

Our teachers are true professionals in fun and inspiring learning sessions! All Finnbrit teachers strive to enhance your English language usage, fluency and confidence. They all use pedagogically sound learning methods which are enjoyable, fun, and memorable. For example, they have taught on the steps of Helsinki Cathedral, in an art exhibition and by using puzzles during the lessons! 

Our teachers want to help you to communicate in English: engage in conversations, articulate your point of view and handle interpersonal interactions in a culturally sensitive manner. 

The objective is for you to be able to apply what you have learnt in real life. Our teachers help you to enjoy learning and to absorb advice and feedback.
