In this article we explore the practical facilitation of flow in foreign language
learning, building upon theoretical concepts and previous research. We
highlight the role of practitioners, emphasizing that teachers are facilitators
shaping language learning experiences. We discuss the relationship between
flow, enjoyment, and task-challenge alignment. We also outline practical
strategies to foster flow, such as task design and interactivity. Moreover, we
share insights from an expert teacher of Finnish as a foreign language. Our
article underscores the importance of maintaining a balance between
challenge and autonomy to sustain flow. Additionally, it showcases a
collaborative video project as an effective practice. Ultimately, this paper
contributes to the study of flow in language learning and its application in
Finnish language education within the MALL project.
