A guest from the ‘Land of the Midnight Sun’
On Wednesday, February 26 we had a guest from Finland or often called as ‘ Land of the Midnight Sun’ . Desi Suvi Emilia Seppala, of a Finnish father and an Indonesian mother, shared about Finland’s education system and how it feels to be a student in the country whose PISA rank has been on top 10 ( Students’ Assessment on Science, Maths, and Reading made by PISA – Program for International Student Assessment ) in the past few years.
English department students were enthusiastic to learn about the history, the system and the personal views of Finland educational system that was shared in a relaxing atmosphere. Questions were flowing and Desi was showing similar enthusiasm in answering the questions : even when she was occasionally blushed by some of the questions.
The hour seemed to fly when it was time to say goodbye. We would like to thank Desi for sharing her experience and knowledge and Miss Melanie for inviting her to our classes.
Kunnes tapaamme jälleen, Desi! Kiitos paljo!
