Do you feel it’s time you put your skills to use? Have you forgotten your Finnish skills? Have you done a Finnish 1 course but need some reactivation before taking Finnish 2? You know already at least greetings, introducing yourself, numbers, days of the week and some other basic vocabulary (like frequently used verbs, food, places) and have an idea of some grammar topics – it just needs to be reactivated! This course is for you. Let’s activate your skills in our active and fun course! You will get to do various conversational exercises, listening comprehension as well as reading and writing. Many vocabulary exercises will be done and review of the basic grammar. All this in interaction with the other students!

After completing the False beginners course, you can continue your studies on Puhutaan suomea! 2 course (starting level A1.2).
