You can begin to learn Finnish either on a Suomi 1 course or the intensive Suomi 1+2 course.
The Suomi 1 course has 48 lessons (4 credits), meeting twice a week, and requires a minimum of 70 hours of independent work. You can choose from three parallel groups: 1A, 1B and 1C have the same content. After Suomi 1 you can take Suomi 2.
The Suomi 1+2 intensive course has a total of 104 lessons (8 credits), meeting three times a week, and it requires a minimum of 140 hours of independent work. After this course you can take Suomi 3.
The Finnish for False Beginners course has 16 lessons (1 credit). The course is a quick revision of Suomi 1; after this course you can take Suomi 2.
Please check the course materials, objectives and contents of each course.
Note that we do not take new students to Suomi 1 or Suomi 1+2 courses after the second lesson.
