Finnish: Beginner

COURSE

Course description

This course is intended for those who have completed Finnish: Introductory (or the equivalent). We will look at more complex aspects of Finnish grammar and syntax, and we will work to further hone your conversational skills in a friendly, entertaining environment. Online resources will be used to enrich in-class study.

We encourage students to participate in our language courses more than one time in order to truly learn the material taught over 10 lessons. It also gives you additional exposure to varying activities within each topic.

Format

Prior to your course start date, you will receive an email notification outlining how to test and access your online course session and materials.

During class time, you will have the opportunity to interact in real-time with your instructor and other class participants. Additionally, you will access resources to facilitate learning and communication through a dedicated class platform (Brightspace). Full system requirements for accessing online courses are available on the System requirements page.
