Family Finnish 3-4

This is an 8-week follow-up course to the previous Family Finnish courses held in July-December 2021. We continue learning basic vocabulary and phrases related to everyday life, improve our conversation skills, and gain confidence to use Finnish in daily situations with native speakers.

 

During this course, you will practise some typical everyday conversation topics in Finnish. We learn how to talk about the weather, do grocery shopping, describe clothing, and tell directions. We practise the conjugation of the verb types 2 and 3, "I have" structure as well as directions from and to. We gain more confidence to speak Finnish and improve listening comprehension as we practise through conversation, drama and game activities. We focus on the spoken Finnish to make it easier to understand native speakers and gain confidence to speak Finnish in the daily situations.

After each lesson, you will have a reflective homework assignment to help you apply your Finnish skills in the daily life. Individual feedback and study tips are provided during the course.

This course follows the topics of Suomen mestari 1 digital book. Having the study book is not required in this course, however, I recommend purchasing it if you wish to study independently between the classes.
