Language Bath - Learning language in practice

Henri Mäntysaari, Kristian Staack, Viktoriia Moiseeva, Arthur Duchamp
and Iddah Ali took part in Finnish Bath last spring
Are you going for an exchange and you need to freshen up your language skills? Do you want to learn spoken language instead of grammar? Would you like to meet people who are interested in your native language? Or did you learn a new language during your exchange and you want to maintain your skills? If yes, Language Bath could be a good option for you!

The Student Union TAMKO started the Language Bath service last spring and because of the good experiences, it's here again! In Language Bath you can teach a language you know and learn a language from native speakers in discussion.

Viktoriia is having a conversation with three native speakers
in French Bath group.
Last spring international degree students Arthur Duchamp and Viktoriia Moiseeva took part in Language Bath groups as teachers and students. About Finnish Bath Arthur said: "Here I can use the words and the things I've learned in the Basic Finnish course." Viktoriia added another positive aspect: "In Language Bath group I can ask about the vocabulary that I'm interested in and that I need in my everyday life."

Find more information about joining the groups on TAMKO web page.
