Kielibuusti - Teaching Finnish and Swedish to international experts

In the Kielibuusti (Language Boost) project, teaching of Finnish and Swedish will be developed to make it a better match for the language proficiency needs of international experts to be recruited into Finland and those already in the country. Kielibuusti is a project under the Talent Boost activities associated with the internationalisation programme of Finnish higher education institutions. The Talent Boost programme is coordinated by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and the Ministry of Education and Culture.

What is the Kielibuusti (Language Boost) project?

In the Kielibuusti (Language Boost) project, different aspects of language learning will be developed to better match the needs of international talents: teaching of Finnish and Swedish, the studying opportunities as well as language learning paths. A nation-wide cooperation model between higher education institutions teaching Finnish or Swedish as a second language, as well as an online learning platform, will be the outcomes of the project. The online platform will provide Finnish and Swedish language learning services and information in one place for language learners, teachers of Finnish and Swedish, employers working with international students and career counsellors.

The Kielibuusti (Language Boost) project is part of a national Talent Boost project of the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, which aims to improve the employment opportunities of highly skilled immigrants through various means. The Kielibuusti (Language Boost) is coordinated by Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. The universities of applied sciences in Helsinki metropolitan area, Haaga-Helia, Laurea and Metropolia, also participate in the project. The project is running from 2021 until 2024.
