Are you wondering if you should learn Estonian? Doubting that it is too hard? No need to worry! coLanguage has created a clear and straightforward course to help you learn Estonian online!
Estonian is the official language of Estonia, spoken by about 1.1 million people. It belongs to the Finno-Ugric family of languages and is distantly related to Hungarian and to the Sami languages.
Estonian nouns and adjectives decline in 14 cases so we understand that it can be tricky and we do not expect foreigners to have any knowledge of it. But the fact that it is difficult for foreigners to learn makes us value our language highly. So knowing even a few words in this exceptional and mysterious language will definitely impress any Estonian!
Each lesson starts with vocabulary and is followed by multiple interactive exercises.
We have chosen many interesting topics and you have a chance to improve your skills in all of them.
This course is both fun and engaging and helps you become a master of Estonian before you even know it!
This online course is suitable for everyone who is interested in learning Estonian. Doesn't matter if you are a student or a worker, young or old, from Europe or the other side of the world as long as you are an English speaker. The course content is structured according to the distance learning audience and you don't need to purchase any expensive books. You will learn how to communicate as a tourist and in everyday life.
This self study course is a great start on your journey to learn Estonian. But don't miss your chance to learn Estonian with a native speaker! You can train your communication skills, practice dialogues or ask anything that you didn't understand or still want to learn. We strongly advise you to combine this course with Skype lessons from one of our native Estonian teachers!
First of all, I would like to congratulate you on the decision to learn or improve a new language. Whether it is Estonian, English or Russian, beginner, advanced or Business language - you are in the right place.
My name is Martin and I am coming from a tiny country in the Northern Europe called Estonia. One of my biggest hobbies is teaching and educating others, that is why for the past 3 years I have been living and working in Istanbul while teaching English to different age groups: kindergarten, school, university as well as adults. I have had students from Beginners to Advanced as well as several businessmen and CEOs of international companies located in Istanbul. What is more, for the last 2 years I have been teaching Estonian, English and Russian online through Skype that gave me chance to meet people from all over the world and help them on their journey of learning foreign languages in a comfortable and enjoyable environment.
We are going to have a 20-30-minute trial lesson during which we can get to know each other, set expectations towards the lessons and schedule the timetable. The next step is simple - we start learning the language of your choice! As simple as it is :)
During the lessons we will focus on making you speak even with the limited vocabulary because speaking is the key to learning a new language quickly and in a fun way!
Cannot wait to receive your in-mail and help you on your journey to learn and speak a foreign language.
Tere! I am a language teacher with more than ten years of experience. I have worked as a lecturer of Estonian language and culture at the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv in Ukraine, at the Tallinn University in Estonia and in numerous language schools. Currently, I am a freelance linguist based in Berlin and teach Estonian online.
It is important for me to introduce a language as a simple logical system that is easy to understand and use. As a teacher, I structure my classes and deliver knowledge in a clear and engaging way, combining theory with practice. Besides my endeavours to make my classes useful, I aspire to make them entertaining and fun, so that my students have a great time in the lesson. By teaching students from a wide range of learning techniques, I always try to provide a personal approach to each student and adapt to their needs, so that they are able to continuously improve their grammar and vocabulary.
