Class will be between 1 and 1 1/2 hours each week on Zoom, and homework outside of class will be 1-2 hours–or more if you wish. The class will be a mix of textbook exercises and my own curriculum ideas to supplement the text–videos, games, songs, stories, listening exercises, and a lot of speaking practice as a group and in breakout rooms.

I have included the table of contents from the Suomen mestari books below so that you can see which one would be most interesting and applicable to your language-learning needs.
