Interested in Estonian language studies? This info is for you!

Everyone interested in studying Estonian is welcome to attend the Integration Foundation’s language fair and family day ‘Ku-ку!’ at Narva College of the University of Tartu from 11:00-18:00 on Saturday 17 March. The event will showcase the latest opportunities for studying the national language.

Irene Käosaar, the director of the Integration Foundation, says language learners are often confused as to which method or training company to choose. “There are far more choices in 2018 than just language courses, and the fair will provide a good overview of all of them,” she explained. “Attendees will also find out about the latest and most innovative learning materials for Estonian and which ones are best suited to them. Lots of people are more inclined towards individual studies on their computer or using an app but just haven’t come across the right opportunities yet.”

The fair, which is being held in Narva, will showcase e-learning environments and learning materials. There will also be sample language cafés featuring Ruslan Trochynsky and Katri Raik as guests. Learning materials will be on sale at the fair. Consultants will be on hand to advise people on the state exams in Estonian and help them complete sample tasks from the exams.

Entertaining everyone throughout the day will be MC Deniss Karabljoff. There will be a prize draw on the hour every hour, a café and activities for little visitors to the fair, including a balloon art workshop. Singers Olesja Klink, Evelina Lebedeva, Oksana Reinsalu, Rafael Sharafetdinov and Dima Vait will be performing, as will the Splash dance troupe.

The aim of the fair, which is being held for the first time, is to bring adult language-learners together with training companies and publishers offering language-learning services and materials.

A similar event on a larger scale will be held at Tallinn’s Song Festival Grounds a week later.

The event forms part of the ‘Development and implementation of advisory and information system’ activity of the ‘Activities supporting integration in Estonian society’ project of the European Social Fund.
