FINNISH LANGUAGE CLASSES - SF SUOMI-KOULU

As of January 2017 SF Suomi-koulu is offering Finnish language classes for children.

Our goal is to provide Finnish language and cultural education to the children living in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as build community within the Finnish families. There are three groups which will meet 10 times during the Spring semester. Each lesson consists of it’s own theme and the goal of the curriculum is to accommodate children’s interests and needs.
