General information

Across the globe there are millions of people who can speak English, but only one million speak Estonian. The language is part of the Finno-Ugric group, related to Finnish and Hungarian. Tallinn University’s winter course in Estonian Language and Culture offers an opportunity to study an unusual and entrancing language, all amongst the backdrop of a well-preserved medieval city. The course aims to familiarize a wide range of international students not only with the Estonian language, but also with the country’s rich culture, history, art and lifestyle.

After a short online interview, students will be divided into groups based on their initial proficiency in the Estonian language. Please note that participants in one group might have slightly different levels. More advanced students can ask for additional tasks. Usually, there are 8-12 students in one group.

Students will further develop their speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar skills.
