Estonian language courses at level A2 for newly arrived immigrants 

We offer free Estonian language courses at level A2 to foreigners who have lived in Estonia for less than five years and acquired a temporary residence permit or primary right of residence under the normal migration procedure*. These courses last for an average of five months (150 academic hours) and take place in Estonian without a base language. To register for training at level A2, you must have completed a level A1 language course of at least 100 academic hours, either as part of the adaptation programme Settle in Estonia, at a language school, at university, or elsewhere**. Registration is open for language courses that will start in January, and take place online, in Tallinn, and in Narva: registration link.

At the end of January, we are going to open additional places of study for courses at levels A1, A2, and B1. Information about new places of study will be published on the social media account of Settle in Estonia and on the website of the Integration Foundation
