Gimara was founded by Raisa and Marja, two qualified and experienced Finnish language teachers, 2015. They were working on a project establishing online language training for immigrants living in remote areas of Finland. Soon they noticed that with the right methods, online learning can be more efficient than traditional classroom learning. At the moment Gimara offers courses in Finnish and English.
