Estonian Intensive
Language courses

The aim of the ESTILC is to teach the basics of Estonian language and at the same time provide incoming Erasmus+ students with an opportunity to integrate with each other and with Estonian culture.

The courses are financed by the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research.

The format of ESTILC courses is similar to former EILC courses.

Feedback from ESTILC attendees in 2020:

“SUUR AITÄH, for letting me be part of this course. I could not imagine a better start and introduction to a foreign country. I really enjoyed it and learned very much. I will definetly recommend it to prospective exchange students.”

“Great class, do not regret the registration one bit. The students get far more than they deserve. Nothing to complain about. The organization was flawless, the teacher was nice, energetic, motivating and engaging. Awesome start to an exciting experience in Estonia. Can only say thank you :)”

“It was a good opportunity to see how Estonia is, how people are and have time to settle a bit before the academic year starts.”

“The language course was great, we learned a lot and we had a lot of fun during the course! The cultural Programm was very interesting and fun, though it could have been even more common-acitivities!”
