Language instruction at the SLI emphasizes practical proficiency in the target language as well as cultural competence. In addition to intensive grammar, reading, listening, and, of course, speaking practice, students will attend lectures, films, cooking classes, ethnic picnics, and, for those who go abroad, extensive excursion programs.
Dear all interested in the Estonian language and culture,
The students are divided into modules II, III and IV on the basis of the results of a short discussion on the first day.

The course, called Keeleklikk, is a modern online Estonian course for beginners that is suitable for individual study and also for classroom use. Keeleklikk targets adult learners who want to learn how to communicate in everyday situations, spokespeople for the Ministry of Education and Research said. The e-course can be accessed at www.keeleklikk.ee .
The course consists of 16 comprehensive language learning units that include a total of 200 animations, over 100 videos that explain grammar, and roughly 1 200 exercises. Keeleklikk also features a real Estonian teacher with whom students can exchange letters via e-mail.
Keeleklikk is free of charge for anyone who wishes to use it. The launch of the English-language version was timed to coincide with Estonian Language Day, 14 March.
The project has been financed by the European Social Fund and the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research.
