Launched at the end of November, the online course A Taste of Finnish teaches basic vocabulary and grammar to beginners – from exchange students to asylum seekers. Finnish online courses are rarely free of charge, or are only available for a restricted group of users, but A Taste of Finnish is of a high pedagogical standard and aims for accessibility. “We wanted to share the learning material freely online so that as many people as possible could benefit from it,” explains University Instructor Taija Udd, who drafted the course material together with Lecturer Leila White.
