Multilingual practises in guidance

In what kinds of situations do international talents seek to use their still-developing Finnish or Swedish language skills? How do native speakers react in these situations? Take a look at the videos in this series and learn how to be productively multilingual in guidance situations! The videos can also serve as a starting point for discussing language practices within your workplace.

Don't assume anyone's language skills.
