The emerging beginner session is designed for students with some familiarity with Finnish language (students in this course do not need to have completed previous studies of Finnish through the Finnish American Folk School). Enrolling students may be able to exchange basic greetings or introduce themselves in Finnish but are not yet ready for conversational exchanges of much length or variety. In this course, students will further their very beginning language skills, particularly oral communication skills, as well as listening, reading, and some writing. Open to students ages 15 and up. Classes will take place via group video call (Zoom) and students should have access to a device with Zoom and an internet connection that supports video calls. Registration closes October 29 or when sold out.

Helvi has taught Finnish language in a variety of learning environments and worked with students of all ages for over 12 years. She has studied Finnish language, Finnish cultural studies, and international education in Finland at both the University of Tampere and the University of Oulu. Based in Minneapolis, Helvi is active in the Minnesota Nordic community and is the founder of Luumu – Finnish Living.
