Finnish language courses at the Adult Education Centre
The Adult Education Centre of Sipoo (Kansalaisopisto) runs two Finnish courses, a beginner's course and a conversation course for those who already speak a bit of Finnish. The topics consist of everyday situations such as shopping, talking in different administrative offices or health care, Books are not used on the courses, and the focus is not on grammar but rather on everyday conversation. The courses are suitable even for Swedish-speakers who need to polish their Finnish language.
