Speaking Finnish - beyond books, classes & courses

Post by richard berman » Sun Aug 24, 2014 8:26 am

Been to a Finnish course only to keep speaking English outside class?
Tried speaking Finnish only to be answered to in English?
Wish you could just learn Finnish without having to study it?

Join us for an informal yet informative discussion hour about how to learn Finnish in a fun, natural way, without grammar-intensives classes or repetitive grammar.

Here’s how it works:
• Come and share your experiences learning Finnish: what’s worked for you, what hasn’t, challenges you’re still struggling with.
• Suggest possible solutions for issues you’ve faced, and others are facing now, and how you overcame them.
• Leave the discussion with new ideas for how to improve your Finnish immediately.

The discussion will be introduced and moderated by Irina Pravet of Language Catalyst. Language Catalyst is a one-woman company whose mission is to help foreigners learn Finnish and adjust to life abroad. The event is free of charge but make sure to register by 25.8 so we can plan attendance.

Who? Anyone interested in using and speaking more Finnish outside the classroom.

What? A discussion hour where everyone’s voice and experience is welcome. Bring your questions & answers about learning Finnish outside the classroom, and we’ll all put our heads together.

Why? Learning Finnish successfully is something that’s seldom discussed. So instead of focusing on what’s difficult or ‘impossible,’ why not put our heads together to help ourselves, and others, move forward? This is the reason we’re organizing a discussion event, so we can all learn from one another and speak better Finnish.
