Activate Your Language

Finnish Language Café for immigrant parents

Activate Your Language is an initiative through which LFI promotes the reactivation of dormant language skills in adult and senior learners (such as languages learned during school), through courses and learning material available online. LFI members have access to language courses in the form of private tutoring or group tutoring. 

The Activate your Language - Finnish Language Café for immigrant parents initiative aims to organize Finnish language learning groups in parallel with the mother tongue playgroups for immigrant kids. Our aim is to help parents activate their passive language skills acquired while living in Finland, and to cover topics that allow parents to support the integration of their child and prevent their social exclusion: vocabulary needed in connection with the kindergarten or healthcare services, small talk topics useful for creating social contacts with Finnish parents or neighbours, reading of announcements for activites that might be interesting for their kids.
