    First tried 2 hour lessons twice a week, but it's definitely not enough if you really want to become fluent.

    Now I'm in one of those 6-hour-day-5 times a week, sponsored by the työkkari and just, just I'm beginning to handle... and still missing the työharjoittelu... HELP!

    well well, I guess I'll think about it again before attending to the classes you told me about then.

    I've been trying to learn Finnish over the internet by myself for the past 4 years, well, but my mind doesn't register! I only remember a few words and numbers. I s*** at learning new languages!!

    Use a different method that suits your individuality. For me, listening and karaokeing Finnish songs has helped a lot in retaining vocabularies otherwise which had been a high mountain to climb

    Vocabularies and then grammar. Most language classes focus on grammar while leaving vocabulary build-up part to students themselves- the surest to failure
