Language Centre events are open for all University of Helsinki students and staff as well as collaborating high school teachers and students. LC events are informal gatherings and they yield no academic credits. You can read more about the events from the Support for Teaching and Learning unit's blog, or contact coordinator Merijn van Bruggen.
Multilingual LC workshops create a relaxed opportunity to discuss cultural issues from different perspectives and bring international and local students together. LC events offer the participants a chance to brush up language skills and learn more about intercultural communication and different cultures. During the workshops, the discussions take place in different language tables.
In autumn 2021, multilingual workshops will take place on 14 October and 25 November from 17-19.
The workshop is hosted by international students assisting in Language Centre courses. The workshop starts with a general introduction, after which the theme and freely selected topics of the target language are discussed in breakout rooms. A general discussion of the main points from the breakout room discussions is the last part of the workshop.
