Do you want to learn how to speak Finnish, but find textbooks too difficult and grammar-oriented? Or, are you a teacher who has problems finding authentic spoken Finnish material to use in your lessons?
We are happy to announce our new improved Finnish course Suomee! is now available online. The Suomee! online course was originally launched in June 2016 and has since been improved and expanded with the help of user feedback.
Spoken and written Finnish are very different from each other , but unfortunately most learning materials focus only on written Finnish. The Suomee! online course was created to fill that gap. Suomee! is designed for all adults who want to learn the basics of spoken everyday Finnish in a fun way. The course consists of story videos, audio-visual vocabularies, quizzes and extra materials. As the course is fully online, it is easy to access at any time and anywhere e.g. with your mobile phone, laptop or tablet. You can use it independently or as a helpful tool alongside teaching.
All the material is available in Finnish, so no further language skills are needed. The course is completely free (registration required). Suomee! was created by Extreme Translation Ltd and four language students at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland.
The course is available at http://www.suomee.fi/
Feel free to share this with your friends, colleagues and students!
