Elementary

Blue path is for beginner elementary. Yellow path is for advanced elementary.

Blue path: you already know greetings, numbers, colours, some verbs. Minkämaalainen sinä olet? Puhutko vähän suomea?

It is highly recommended to take the Moving on part 1 before enrolling to part 2. But if you have learned Finnish elsewhere, you can skip part 1 and join part 2 directly.

Yellow path: You can have simple conversations in Finnish, and you know “verbityypit” well. You can tell about yourself, you can understand some announcements, you can tell where you live in Finnish. NOTE: IF you can understand most signs, warnings AND some ADDS and you can take part in a simple conversation – jump directly to Finnish to A2.2.
NOTE! On yellow path You need the textbook: Oma Suomi 1.

  • Moving on with Finnish, A1.2.
