Sámi Language Café – Giellakafe

Samiskt språkcafé v1

Background: Sámediggi

Nordic Culture Point is celebrating Sámi Language Week with a Sámi Language Café where you can learn more about the Sámi languages and practice communicating in Northern Sámi. Together with people who are proficient in Northern Sámi, you can practice the language in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.

Both beginners and more advanced speakers are welcome. Admission is free, and we will provide refreshments!

How the Language Café works:

The Language Café is hosted at the Nordic Culture Point library, located at Kaisaniemenkatu 9, Helsinki.

We start the event with two presentations: the first presentation is about the activities of Nordic Culture Point, and the second focuses on the Sámi culture and the Sámi languages.

After the presentations, it is time to enjoy refreshments and practice the language.

The native speaker leads the discussion, and the topics are chosen together with the participants. As a participant, you can be as active in the discussion as you wish.

You are free to come and go as you please during the event.

Please note that the event takes place between 17:00 and 19:00 Finnish time (UTC+3).


Nordic Culture Point has been granted the EcoCompass environmental certificate. We’re making every endeavour to reduce our carbon footprint, which is why all travel within the organisation is carefully planned. Use public transport when you visit us, and you’ll contribute to a greener cultural scene, too!
