We make language learning fun!


A foreign language is best learned when learning is active, authentic and fun! Lesson planning and preparation should also be simple, easy and quick for teachers.

Sanasala Learning was created by two teachers from Finland who saw the need for simple language learning activities for young learners.

Sanasala learning materials are widely used by teachers in Finland. See for yourself why and join us today!

What is Sanasala?

We are Sanna and Salla, or like the English would pronounce /Sana/ and /Sala/ and we are passionate to spread the Finnish pedagogy in language learning!

Sana means ‘a word’ and sala means ‘a secret place’ in the Finnish language. So welcome to the secret world of words!


We are two teachers from Finland and our learning materials and teacher trainings were developed after many years of experience in teaching English in Finland and abroad.

Many teachers came to us asking how to teach English to young learners. Some were also discouraged because they themselves are second language speakers.

We know and believe that everyone can learn English and everyone can teach it too!
