Language courses

Language and culture

Did you just move to Finland? Or have you already spent some time in Finland and want to improve your language skills? Then this is something for you!

At Kvarnen we have built an efficient environment for learning Swedish or Finnish. The studies are varied, you will meet many people from different countries, and you will get a chance to use the target language in real-life situations.

The language programme offers full-time (or part-time) studies in Swedish or Finnish at a beginner’s or advanced level. The courses begin in August and end in May. However, we accept students continuously throughout the school year. The school day ranges from 9 am – 14 pm. (5 h at school + 2 h of homework) It is possible to combine the studies with part-time work.

The studies are free of charge, but you pay for your own books.

Social science, history, mathematics, and optional studies such as sports, handicrafts, arts, IT, photography, and English are included in the language studies. We offer personal tutoring and student counselling. The students undertake internships during two to four weeks throughout the school year. The language course collaborates with other programmes at Kvarnen and with other schools in the region.
