The participants of the training course were divided into three groups: one with instruction in English, another with instruction in Russian, and the children’s group that had a specially designed module for children and teenagers, during which teachers used various activities both in English and Russian to describe Estonia to the kids. Some of the participants who had already been in Estonia for a while knew very well how to organise things here and shared their experience with others. Those who had just come to live here still had plenty of questions, all of which were tackled one at a time.
People from all walks of life took part in the training course. For example, one man from India, who had been living and working in Estonia for a year, had decided to relocate his wife and two little children here. They came to take part in the programme all together to learn how to find a kindergarten for their children, how to choose a school for them later, and what children’s rights and parents’ obligations are. In their turn, the kids had plenty of fun activities, which gave them knowledge about Estonian culture, nature and traditions.
