Active Finnish for home service

Active Finnish 1 language course is intended for foreigners in the field of home service but it suits for other fields too. The students have none or little experience of using Finnish in their everyday life.  The student may also be a beginner in the grammar or they might know quite a lot, but don’t know how to use it when speaking (or want to improve their fluency). The student will learn basic communication skills with everyday words and also field specific vocabulary. The student will learn about Finnish culture and manners in the real life communication situations. Starting level is A1 or A2 and the aim is to strengthen the current level or get one level up (understanding and speaking). (Check your level language_levels)
