This course is suitable for you if you have participated on Finnish for Beginners 2 in spring 2019. If your skill level is A1.1 or A1.2 (according to the European Framework of Reference for Languages, CEFR), you are also welcome on the course.

The course is also suitable for people who have taken the courses Learn Finnish 1 and 2 in summer 2019.

You have studied chapters 1 to 6 from the textbook Suomen mestari 1, or have equivalent skills.


We will study Finnish by doing plenty of group and pair work, where you get to use the languge. We will also do writing and reading exercises. The course mainly follows the themes of the textbook, Suomen mestari 1.

The textbook Suomen mestari 1 forms the core of the course. On this course, we will cover chapters 7–9. The pace is a little slower than on the other Summer University course, because we will cover only 3 chapters. An exam will be held at the end of the course. After mastering all the contents of the course, students may be able to reach skill level A2.1.

The main language of tuition is English.
