Introduction to Finnish Language and Culture -courses
Wanting to get to know Finland? Are You interested in learning some Finnish? We offer Finnish language courses for beginners that are planned and taught by pedagogically trained language teachers who all speak Finnish as a first language. At EduEffect Finland we introduce you to Finnish culture and language through positive Finnish pedagogy.
We offer three types of courses, from which you can select according to your needs and style of studying. All of our courses are taught in English so you do not need to have any prior knowledge of Finnish.
None of our courses include final exams or assignments, unless the student wishes to have one. We wish to focus on the learner, therefore the students perform a self-evaluation at the beginning and at the end of the course. Our courses are meant to be easily accessible where the learner does not have to worry about grades or evaluation.
In this course we offer live lessons through Zoom where you can ask questions and discuss directly with our teachers during the lessons. The lessons can take place weekly or bi-weekly in the morning or afternoon. Each lesson takes approximately two hours and includes grammar, vocabulary and information about Finnish culture.
This option also includes the Claned-workspace, where you can practice Finnish by doing language exercises, get links to additional material created by our team, as well as test your skills outside the classroom according to your own personal motivation. Our courses are meant for joyful and stress-free learning, therefore we do not conduct a final exam unless the student wishes to do so.
Independent Study -course
Our independent study course is suitable for people on the go or who have a busy schedule. The course takes place online on the Claned-workspace, where you can watch video lessons recorded by our teachers, do exercises at your own pace, and get access to our online materials. You can set your own deadlines and study according to your schedule.
You can contact the teachers through Claned if you have any questions and we give you instructions on how to operate the Claned-workspace at the beginning of the course. This option does not include any final assignment or exam.
