Learn Finnish 7 is suitable for you if you have participated on Learn Finnish 6 or have equivalent skills. The starting level is A2.1 or early A2.2 (on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, CEFR).
You have studied chapters 1 to 6 from Suomen mestari 2, or have equivalent skills.
The aim of the course is to strengthen participants’ skills on level A2.
Themes will include, for example, work, education, shopping, and running errands. On grammar, we will focus on, for example, “i” plural (locative, partitive and genitive cases), pronouns (nämä, nuo, ne), and familiarise ourselves with the comparison of adjectives. We will also practise speaking and familiarise ourselves with colloquial Finnish.
The textbook Suomen mestari 2 forms the core of the course. We will study chapters 7–8, and also revise the main issues of the previous chapters. The themes will be practised with the help of various exercises, texts, tasks, and games. We will also discuss in Finnish. At the end of the course, there will be an oral exam.
The course is intensive and students are required to be active both in class and at home. The languages of instruction are Finnish and English.
Active and regular participation and passing the oral exam at the end of the course. In order to get a full certificate, students are required to pass the exam. In order to pass the course, participants are required to attend at least 70 or 80 per cent of the lessons.
