The Finnish Language School of Dubai
Our language school operates as an after school activity at Dubai International Academy. Our purpose is to support parents in their efforts to transfer Finnish language and heritage to their children. We are part of the world-wide Finnish language schools abroad network which is supported by the Finnish government.
The lessons are held on Mondays from 4.30 pm to 6 pm. This academic year we have over 100 children aged 1-14 years, divided into several groups based on their age and skill level. The youngest students learn by music, movement, playing and crafts while the older ones follow the Finnish language curriculum used in schools in Finland.
The operation of our language school relies on active volunteers. In addition to the weekly lessons we organize events which support our educational goals. We also have a library which is open during the Monday lessons and stocks a wide selection of Finnish books for both adults and children to lend.
