The Finnish intensive course is one of Päivi Vetsch’s most enjoyable teaching duties. In Helsinki in beautiful and atmospheric August, the new international degree students learn the basics of Finnish and get new friends from outside their own field. “I give the same final examination in all of my introductory courses, but the Helsinki Summer School students do just as well and even better in it compared to the students of other courses,” Vetsch says.

Spelling the names of berries at a marketplace, patronising a café – who wouldn’t like to learn a new language while wandering about an unfamiliar city? In the Finnish language course of the Helsinki Summer School, students do just that.
