Learn Estonian language via Skype

About the Estonian language

Estonian is the language of the Estonian people. It is related to the Pre-Baltic Finnic branch of the Finno-Ugric family of languages. It is the official language of Estonia and among the official languages of the European Union. Estonian is divided into two dialects: North and South Estonian. The written form is based on the Latin alphabet. Old Estonian appeared around the twelfth or thirteenth centuries and was based on Pre-Baltic Finnic dialects. The structure of Estonian bears a strong resemblance to German and the Baltic languages.

The online language school Language Life offers private and group Estonian language lessons with professional teachers and native speakers. With us you can learn Estonian regardless of your current language level as the majority of our teachers speak Russian fluently. Our programs are designed to meet the demands of wide range of students and the use of recent technologies transforms the learning process into an enjoyable game.

 

Why learn Estonian on Skype

Estonian lessons by Skype will let you combine all the benefits of traditional learning with the advantages of online learning. So, just like in traditional courses, you will study with one of our professional Estonian instructors, but you will be able to set a schedule that is convenient for you, and you save time because you don't have to leave your own home. Your instructor will be a native speaker from Estonian. And, you are guaranteed a personalized learning experience. If, for example, you want to focus only on conversational Estonian instead of grammar, you just need to discuss this with your instructor.

 

How to learn Estonian on Skype

Lessons on Skype do not differ from traditional private lessons during which the student and the teacher can see and hear each other. All the materials that you will need for each lesson are sent to you electronically in advance. Because your lessons on Skype are one-on-one, you and your instructor can easily tailor your learning experience to your needs and desires. You can focus on the topics that are most important and interesting to you, and you can spend as much time as you need to on any particular topic. So, if you need to spend extra time on numbers, for example, you just need to tell your instructor. Your course of study is designed just for you, so don't be afraid to speak up!
