Foreign-language class, french

When it comes to foreign-language classes, the main focus is on achieving a comfortable level of using a foreign-language in different situations, subjects and concepts. The language is not being taught per se; instead, the foreign language is used to learn a subject matter.

In foreign-language classes, the first two years emphasise understanding the language and building a foundation for foreign-language competence. Reading and writing skills are taught in the students' mother tongue (Finnish). The share of foreign-language instruction is approximately 50%.

Depending on the foreign-language class and school where it is being taught, some subjects are taught entirely in Finnish, while some are taught partly in a foreign language and partly in Finnish. Yet others are taught entirely in a foreign language.
