Student Union together with International Staff Services is organising International Café: Speak Finnish evenings in April, September, October and November.
The events’ purpose is to bring together Finns and international students, doctoral candidates and staff to discuss about Finnish culture and also practice Finnish language.
Every event has theme discussion at first, after the theme there will be a chance to practice basic Finnish with the help of Finnish students. Some of the students study to become Finnish teachers so this is a great chance to practice your Finnish!
