LANGUAGE USE AND CULTURE (25 ECTS cr)

The Language Use and Culture study module is aimed at university and Open University students who have completed the basic studies in a foreign language or who have the corresponding skills. The student may complete the whole 25-credit module or take individual study units according to his/her interests. The studies focus on language structure and vocabulary and on practicing oral and written skills. In addition, the students get a broader and deeper understanding of the country and its culture.

Having completed the study module the student can read literature of his/her own field and is capable of both spoken and written expression in the foreign language. The student gets an overall picture of the foreign culture and history, the past and the present. The student is able to analyze and make comparisons between Finnish and the foreign culture. Thus, the module serves as a basis for interaction with foreigners in working life, research, studies, and free time.
