Language courses and social security

Hello Fpa, my name is Alexandra and I am a russian citizen. Recently, I got a finnish recidence permit based on family ties (I am married to a finnish man) and I have a finnish social security number. This permit is valid for one year, is it possible for me to get some kind of social benefit when I will attend finnish and swedish language courses? This courses is not full time I think but question is if I am in some way eligible by the finnish social benefits (for example opinto-tuki)?
