Settle in Estonia program helped along Rafael’s transition. He found many friends among foreigners as well as Estonians thanks to the knowledge gained from the courses. Rafael: “The courses are a perfect opportunity to meet like-minded people”. Rafael has passed 3 Settle in Estonia courses – A1 beginners language course, Basic module and the Work and Entrepreneurship module.
Rafael confirms to all foreigners that if you are proactive and interested in adjusting to life in Estonia, ready to learn the local traditions, culture and even a little bit of Estonian language then Estonians will open their hearts and welcome you warmly. He thinks that Estonians are shy at first impression, but once you get to know them, you’ll make friends for life.
