    Default What is the best free online English teaching site(s) for Finnish students?

    Hello,

    I have a friend who is Finnish and lives in Finland. He wants to
    learn English but the problem is that he has no knowledge on English.

    He is totally uninitiated so it has become very difficult for him to start
    learning because almost all the tutorial sites are written in English what
    he, as of now can not read.

    All I want is a good free online English language
    tutorial for Finnish students written in Finnish language.


    Please let me know about it.

    Thank you.

    I'm afraid that I haven't come across such a site. I searched and couldn't find anything either. Someone else may know of one.

    I can't find one either but I had an idea. Google Translate can translate whole websites. If you go to translate.google.com and enter the URL of a beginner's English site in the box, then click on the new URL which pops up under the other language (ie you set it to translate from English to Finnish), it will give you a translation of the whole page. Of course, that means the parts in English will also be in Finnish. However, if your friend has 2 computers, or a computer and an iPad, he could have the site open in English on one screen and in Finnish on another screen and use the two together.

    Here is what I did as a test run. I found a beginner's English site: English for Everybody - Beginners English Course
    I entered that URL into Google Translate and asked it to translate the site into Finnish.
    That gave me a new URL: Google Translate
    which is the same site but in Finnish.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
