Local and online materials
About this website
This website is here to help you with your language learning. It does not matter if you are currently participating in a language centre course or not - there are many things you can do on your own to improve your skills. We would be happy to assist you!
To proceed, simply choose the language you want to study from the menu on the left. You will be asked to choose your skills level. You can find more information on this and several other topics in our user tutorial.
Please note that the pages are updated regularly. However, if you cannot find the kind of material you are looking for or if you have any problems with this site, please click on Feedback and offer your ideas!
We will open later on Wednesday 25th of March
We will be open on Wednesday from 12 am onwards instead of the normal 10 am. Otherwise our opening hours are normal, so we will close our doors at 4 pm.
Persian (Farsi) links
We have had some inquiries about Persian material. As we are unable to offer Persian material in the SAC at least at the moment, we looked for some links for studying the language. You can find Persian (Farsi) in the left-hand side column and by clicking it you can go to hyperlinks.
Do also check out the Persian channels of our satellite TVs!
Have fun with studying Persian!
Novels to borrow
One of the simplest ways to learn languages is reading books! We have a lot of novels in many foreign languages, especially in Nordic languages and English. Unlike other material, you can borrow culture books and read them home. We got new novels in the beginning of the year and more new material is coming!
We would like to thank the student who donated us awesome Japanese material : now it is possible to read Japanese One Piece manga or to learn make origamis in SAC!
Swedish in English? Yes!
Now it is possible to learn Swedish in English, too. A great opportunity for exchange students to get to know the other official language of Finland. Välkommen!
Would you like to learn some Estonian?
Self Access Centre has material for Estonian learners, come and take a look at Naljaga pooleks and Keel selgeks! Studying is now possible in Russian, too.
The Self-Access Centre (Pinni B5071) welcomes all old and new visitors to get to know our services on the 5th floor of Pinni B. You can come and relax on our new sofas between your lectures and watch satellite TV!
