Finnish for foreigners

For those interested in learning Finnish for their long-term benefit or just for fun, there are plenty of possibilities around the Helsinki region, such as:

Helsinki Summer University

Helsinki University Language Centre

Institute of Adult Education

Adult Education Centre in Helsinki

Adult Education Centre in Espoo

These centres also offer a chance to learn Swedish, the second official language in Finland. It is good to note that many of the institutions of higher education offer Finnish or Swedish courses to their students.
