The winter course in Estonian Language and Culture from Tallinn University offers an opportunity to study an unusual and entrancing language.


The Estonian Language and Culture course from Tallinn University 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 written test, students will be divided into groups based on their initial proficiency in the Estonian language.

Why this course?

  • You can be one of the few people capable of speaking a very unique language, spoken natively by only about 1.1 million people.
