Finnish courses

Kompassi offers non-stop Finnish language courses three days in a week. These courses are open and free for all and they are held at Kompassi.

You do not need to register / sign-up for these courses.

The levels mentioned here are determined by Kompassi, they do not correspond to the official language levels.

Kompassi’s Finnish language courses offer variety of opportunities for the students to study the language.
 We offer two different levels of language learning (for beginners and for little advanced levels), through which you can learn grammar and language structure.
 Apart from this, you can practice speaking Finnish language in two different levels (beginners and for little advanced). Students are encouraged to speak more Finnish in these interactive groups.
Apart from these classes, Kompassi offers Finnish lesson groups which are led by Kompassi’s Finnish volunteers. That info is just below the time schedule for the non-stop courses.
