Update! A1 and A2 level language courses

We are very pleased that so many of you are interested in learning Estonian! As of today, all A1 and A2 language groups are full, we will open registration again in the second half of 2021.

If you missed your chance this time, then there are still plenty of options for learning Estonian. We kindly recommend to have a look at some alternative opportunities for acquiring the Estonian language:

  • The Integration Foundation´s Estonian language courses from A1 to C1 level. Registration for language courses takes place twice a year, in January and August. More info is available here.
  • The Estonian Unemployment Insurance Fund´s free Estonian language courses from A1 to C1 level. The courses are aimed for registered unemployed persons. More info is available here.
  • If you would like to learn Estonian in a language school and have passed the Estonian language examination at the proficiency level of A2, B1, B2, or C1, then you can ask for compensation for language learning costs. Read more here.
  • There are plenty of language schools where you can learn Estonian: for example Multilingua, City Keeltekool, Opus Lingua, Lingatore and etc. The full list of language schools approved by the Estonian Language Board is here.
  • For non-formal language learning opportunities such as language cafés, Estonian language, and culture clubs and etc, we highly recommend to keep an eye on activities and services provided by the Estonian Language Houses in Tallinn and Narva. They offer various opportunities for learning Estonian language for everyone throughout the year.

In addition, we recommend to keep an eye on the activities of the International House Estonia, International House Tartu, and Tartu Welcome Centre. Also, Tallinn Central Library is regularly organizing language cafés, more info is available here.

For individual language learning, we recommend to check out Estonian language e-learning courses such as Keeleklikk , Keeletee, Walktalk, and Speakly.

We wish you the best of luck in learning the Estonian language!
