Finnish: Introductory


Course description

This is an introduction to the Finnish language. Conversational basics will be covered as well as the primary grammatical structures and pronunciation basics. We will also cover the origins of the Finnish language and the relationship between it and other languages in Europe. A reasonable grasp of conversational Finnish will allow you to use it in travel situations or in simple inquiries and discussion.

World Language courses are offered three times per year:

  • September (registration opens in June)
  • January (registration opens in November)
  • April (registration opens in November)
