FITCHBURG — Finnish is often regarded as one of the most difficult languages to learn, those looking to learn it will now have an opportunity in a fun, encouraging setting.

This fall, the Finnish Center at Saima Park will offer group lessons on 10 consecutive Mondays, starting on Sept. 12, at the center, at 67 Scott Road.

“We will have two groups, one for beginners and the other for more advanced students,” said Saija Laurla, who will teach the classes. “And I promise I will make sure you’ll have fun while learning.”

Beginners will meet on Mondays, Sept. 12, through Nov. 14, from 6.15 to 8.15 p.m. The advanced group will meet on the same days, from 4 to 6 p.m.

The book that will be used in both classes is called “Suomen Mestari 1.” There are also other materials provided to extend the weekly lessons.

Members of the Finnish Center at Saima Park who have taken the classes previously are excited to see that Laurla is offering classes again this fall.

“Saija is informative, with a sparkle of unpredictability, this is such a fun class,” said Tina Nordstrand.

Other members of the Finnish Center agree.

“I really enjoy the language courses I have taken at the Finnish Center,” said Allison Stamm. “Saija is such a fantastic teacher, she incorporates a thorough understanding of the complexities of the Finnish language (and there are many) with relevant and insightful cultural contextual references.”

Laurla makes learning Finnish fun in spite of how difficult it can be.

“She is both smart and enthusiastic,” added Sandra Perko. “As a native speaker, she is fully versed in the grammar and usage of formal written Finnish as well as spoken Finnish, and she is good at explaining the differences. Her English is excellent so she has no difficulty making her knowledge clear to us students. I think she’s a great teacher.”

Tuition fee is $75 for members of the Finnish Center at Saima Park; and $80 for nonmembers. Children under 18 may attend for half tuition. To register for a class, email [email protected] or call 978-407-9690 and leave a message stating your name and contact information.
