Estonian Level 3 Upper Intermediate

Course description: Upper Intermediate Estonian is intended for those who have a reasonable speaking fluency in Estonian and a good working knowledge of its grammar and some familiarity with its culture. The course runs over three ten-week terms and each session is two hours long. It further develops all four skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Students are encouraged to converse, read and write about a range of topics familiar to Estonians, based mainly on printed and broadcast and Internet media sources. Current affairs relating to Estonia are discussed, and the student’s knowledge of Estonian culture is deepened and widened.

Study materials: These are provided by the teacher, but a supplementary textbook is T nagu Tallinn (M.Pesti & H.Ahi, 2006).
