Architecture tours support language-learning and are designed for adult students of Estonian who speak another language as their mother tongue and who are interested in architecture. The tours showcase local architecture in Estonian and are led by guides. Those taking the tours have the chance not only to learn more about architecture but also to hone their Estonian skills.
