LANGUAGE COURSES IN FINNISH FOR FOREIGNERS

Basic courses (CEFR A1-A2)

The basic courses are meant for students in every faculty. A basic course 1, e.g. XFIN0001 Finnish 1, starts from the very basics, so no previous studies on the language are required. Those who have already studied a language are placed on course levels that match their skills. All types of language skills are practiced on the basic courses. The main focus, however, is on phonetics and basic grammar as well as on oral skills and listening comprehension.

The aim of the studies is to raise the students' active and passive language skills to an adequate level so that they can take part in mandatory and optional courses and make use of their language skills e.g. in student exchange programs.

XFIN0007 Survival Finnish (CEFR A1.2) (2 ECTS)
or
XFIN0001 Finnish 1 (CEFR A1.2) (3 ECTS)

XFIN0003 Finnish 3 (CEFR A2.1) (3 ECTS)

Please note that XFIN0007 Survival Finnish is not adequate preparation for the course XFIN0002 Finnish 2. Students who intend to study Finnish for at least half a year should start with XFIN0001 Finnish 1.
