15.   TEK Finnish Language Café returns every Monday and Wednesday!

After a Christmas break, the TEK Finnish Language Café returns to help you practise your Finnish skills outside of your lessons! The café is a low effort opportunity to speak Finnish with other learners, as well as to just have a break from your courses with coffee and snacks. The location is the Otaniemi TEK office, found in the Harold Harlin Learning Centre (via external A door), so can form a convenient part of your day.

The Finnish Café aims to be very casual, with all skill levels of Finnish welcome, especially including those who are native speakers. Whether you are in your first year in Finland or your twentieth, feel free to stop by, chat, and improve your skills!

In terms of integrating into Finland following studies, language problems are consistently given as the number one issue in finding a field relevant job. While native skills are impossible for many, even some Finnish skills can make a huge difference. As part of TEK’s work to improve the ability of international students to thrive in Finland, these cafes can hopefully help you achieve those skills – and therefore a future here!

Starting from Wednesday 01.02., the times of the café throughout the Spring semester are as follows:
Every Monday at 16:15
Every Wednesday at 14:15
Depending on demand, extra sessions can also be organised later on.
We have a Telegram group for communication and extra Finnish practise, as well as for any possible cancellations or changed times. If you have any interest in coming to a café, join it at https://t.me/+_XsOr7ChyPxkOTI8

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to message me at @kvtykki on Telegram, or at owain.hopeaketo@tek.fi.

Nähdään siellä!
Owain Hopeaketo
TEK International Student Liaison, Otaniemi
