The Estonian language course of the adaptation programme has a safe learning environment that encourages the learner to participate. The classes use inclusive techniques and a variety of communication, listening, reading, and writing tasks. Pair and/or group work is used on each study day. Grammar drill and vocabulary learning are playful – communicative tasks are used to reinforce language structures.
The participant is instructed to learn words independently, to practice what they have learned in a language environment and to notice the Estonian language environment, to write texts about their own life, and to read level-appropriate texts.
