XFIN0200 FINNISH: LANGUAGE USE AND CULTURE (CEFR B2) (25 ECTS)
(Finnish as a foreign language)

The study module Finnish: Language Use and Culture is aimed at the students and personnel of the University of Lapland, the Open University, and the University of Applied Sciences who speak Finnish as a foreign language and have completed basic studies in Finnish or have corresponding skills. The language of instruction is Finnish, except for the XFIN0230 Finnish Culture course, which is taught in English. English may be used when needed on the first two courses (XFIN0221, XFIN0222). You may complete either a 25-credit study module or individual courses.

The studies will make you familiar with the structure and vocabulary of Finnish and improve your reading comprehension as well as your oral and writing skills. You can also expand and deepen your knowledge of Finland and its culture.

Having completed the study module you can read the literature of your own field in Finnish and you can speak and write Finnish relatively well. You will get an overall picture of the Finnish lifestyle, culture, and history. You can also analyse and make comparisons between Finnish culture and your own.
