”Should I take part in the Intensive Winter Course?”

Wonderful to see you’ve found our course, and are interested in learning Finnish at the Summer University of Jyväskylä!

In order to register for the course you must be over 17 years old. For the winter course some basic knowledge of Finnish language skills are required, e.g. you know the letters, can introduce yourself and use some basic phrases. By dividing our students into groups based on their level of language skills we ensure that you receive teaching based on your skill level and goals. Please notice that in the beginner groups we use English as a supporting language for teaching. Therefore a sufficient level of understanding basic English is required to join the course.

Language teaching for the course is planned by our professional Finnish teachers from the University of Jyväskylä. The contents are useful and applicable in later stages of studies as well. Teaching methods used on the course are diverse, and every learner is taken into consideration. Studying on the course is effective and memorable.

Our student body is comprised of a variety of people interested in Finnish language and culture. They are united in their strong motivation to learn Finnish and get to know Finnish culture, which creates an excellent learning atmosphere and sense of togetherness on the course. Studying in the Intensive Summer Course is a fantastic opportunity to form new friendships with people who share similar interests in Finland, Finnish language and culture.

Our students give us feedback, which is actively used to develop the course into an effective and intensive entity containing volumes of interesting elements about Finland and Finnish people.
