Family Finnish 1 Offline

Family Finnish 1 is a beginner course (A1.1) for you who would like to learn basic Finnish vocabulary, structures, and phrases. Your goal is to communicate with your Finnish-speaking family members in their native language.

In this course, we practise everyday situations related to work, home, and family life through various drama and game activities. We gain confidence to speak Finnish. We focus on the spoken Finnish to understand the native speakers and make it easier to speak Finnish in the daily situations. After each lesson, you will have a reflective homework assignment that will help you improve your Finnish skills in everyday life.
