Looking for a Finnish private tutor in Basel

Hi,

I've joined this forum because I'm searching for a finnish person who would like to teach us some Finnish. It seems very difficult to find a finnish cours in Basel in ordinary language schools..
My boyfriend and I know some basic Finnish words only, still we qualify as beginners I would say! So we are looking for some basic lessons and conversation with a native speaking person.

If you are interested, please let me know your price. Alternatively we can offer German, French or Spanish lessons in return.

Kiitos!

Re: Looking for a Finnish private tutor in Basel

That is probably a pretty tall order (Finnish and Basel).

Have you thought of taking lessons over Skype? Here is one link. If you want to look at other ones just Google "Finnish lessons Skype".

Good luck.

Re: Looking for a Finnish private tutor in Basel

Confusion between Finnish Schools (of which I guess there are very few) and Finishing Schools (of which I guess there are more)? The OP is looking for Finnish language tuition.

I thought all of the Finishing schools were full of Swedish girls.

I well understood what the person is looking for. A FiNNish day school might have a suggestion for a tutor, as they would be well connected to the community. I dont know too much about finishing schools...
