The course is also great for Finnish evening course students who wish to deepen their knowledge and skills. These are suitable for all people who want to get a well-rounded grasp of the Finnish grammar and its unique structure. The focus will be on words, phrases and situations in the Finnish summer time!

Bookings:

What’s included in the price?
There are no hidden extras! All in-class materials are included in the course fee.

Five hours of Finnish tuition with hand-outs and plenty of help and advice in tackling the Finnish grammar and speaking exercises will be provided in class. Tea, coffee and lunch are provided too, so all you’ll need to bring along is yourself.

To ensure that everyone gets individual attention we have three tutors providing tuition to small groups of max. 10 people. Please contact us for suitability and more information.

The course is suitable for all people aged 18 and over. We offer three different study levels and our tutors are experienced professionals in teaching, who are able to take everyone’s needs into consideration.

To give you an idea, below are the levels we take registrations for:

Absolute beginners: You should have an interest in the Finnish language and a desire to learn but no previous experience is required. (Topics: pronunciation, greetings, useful phrases, simple questions, time expressions)
Intermediate: For those who want to enjoy the holiday in Finland and make the most of it, in Finnish. This is the Finnish language survival kit for this year's summer holiday, the short version. (Topics: how to order food in the restaurant, how to get on the right bus, Finnish small talk)
Advanced: This is a conversational course for advanced speakers with grammar exercises thrown in.
