Suvi Laakkonen

Teacher of German

I am a German language teacher whose expertise is combined by my Finnish educational background and my  teaching experience in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. My love for foreign languages is reflected in her Master’s degree including mainly German and Russian language studies but also courses in Japanese and Finnish Sign Language. As a teacher I want to motivate the children to work hard but also enjoy having some fun in the classroom. I want to be the role model for young people as a lifelong learner, which is why I constantly aim to develop my professional skills. In my free time, I like to play video games and to dance. I love plants, dogs and going to a sauna (like most of the Finns do)!
