It is hard for them to attend a simple conversation or create a short text. Their pronunciation causes difficulties to understand meanings of produced speech.

They are able to cope in most common everyday situations, which have been studied during the course. Students are able to write brief messages (e.g. e-mail, text message, and post card) in Finnish and are able to pronounce Finnish clearly enough. Students’ mother tongue may have an effect in pronunciation and/or sentence structure, but it doesn’t cause big problems to understand the meaning of messages.

The whole group is international!
21 contact lessons during the first period. Also quite much independent work is needed to make it possible to learn the basics properly! For the most of us learning a new language demands hard work and time! 2 ECTs course means 2 x 27 hours (54 hours) work! To build up one's motivation is very important: to find useful, fun and creative ways to learn, use and understand Finnish. So have Finnish as a hobby also in your free time!
