    25,00 

    Jälleen keväällä 2023.

    Jokainen kerta kestää noin 2 tuntia (klo 17-19 TAI 15-17). Keskustelemme paljon.

    Toukokuussa:  Metsässä Helsingissä (klo 17-19)
    Tule oppimaan suomea, kävelemään ulkona, puhumaan suomea, katsomaan taivasta, nauttimaan puhtaasta ilmasta ja oppimaan uusia snaoja. Opiskelemme metsän sanoja, eläimiä ja paljon verbejä.  Kävelemme metsässä, kallioilla ja ja puutarhassa. Käymme myös uurnalehdossa. Kaikki keskellä Helsinkiä!

    Tapaamme Helsingin keskuspuistossa, Maunulan majan pihassa. Kävelemme luonnossa. Opimme metsän sanoja ja luontoon liittyviä substantiiveja ja adjektiiveja. Kävelemme polulla, kallioilla ja puutarhassa. Käymme myös uurnalehdossa. Metsässä keskellä Helsinkiä!

    HUOM! Ei onnistu pyörätuolissa tai vaunujen kanssa.

    Paikka: Keskuspuisto, Helsinki

    Kesäkuussa: Töölönlahden ympäri (klo 17-19) Sopii pyörätuolissa tai vaunujen kanssa

    Opitaan sanastoa kaupungissa ja rakennuksista: mikä on pylväskäytävä ja mikä on kanto. Mikä on suojatie ja mikä sitten on pelastusrengas. Kävelyllä nähdään myös Helsingin pienin sähkölaitos.

    Paikka:  Helsinki, Töölönlahti

    Elokuussa: Lapinlahden sairaala-alue (klo 15-17) Sopii pyörätuolissa tai vaunujen kanssa

    Opitaan paljon uusia sanoja hyvinvoinnista, psykiatrisesta sairaanhoidosta ja mielenterveydestä. Aiheista tehdään erilaisia tehtäviä: keskustellaan, luetaan ja kirjoitetaan. Kävelemme ulkona ja sisällä.

    Lapinlahden sairaala on Suomen ensimmäinen psykiatrinen sairaala. Vuonna 2008 hoitaminen sairaalassa loppui, mutta kaunis talo ja ihana piha ovat siellä vielä.

    Paikka: Lapinlahti, Helsinki
