"I loved my week attending lectures and visiting schools in Finland. One can read articles and books about the Finnish education system, but nothing is better than being physically immersed in it. The balance of lectures and school visits enhanced exposure to the system, I particularly appreciated being in classrooms and having the opportunity to speak with students and teachers. Our school visits were comprehensive. The Wednesday evening walk and meal in the forest was a highlight of the study tour. The enjoyment of nature is an integral part of Finnish culture and we witnessed how accessible this is. Thank you to Learning Scoop for a wonderful experience in Finland. "
