A&E Language School offers Estonian language courses for secondary school (gymnasium in Estonia) pupils and adults.
We offer Estonian lessons in small groups (up to 5 people), in pairs or on a one-on-one basis.
During the lessons our teachers use a wide range of audio and video materials, role-play and other methods which make classes fun and practical at the same time.
Prices start at 5.00 euros per academic hour (45 min.). Tuition is paid monthly.
After completing a full-length course and passing an Estonian level exam, you are entitled to be reimbursed up to 320.00 euros per level.

Our teachers are experts in their field with many years of experience working in state and private schools and organisations.
A&E Language School teachers’ professional goal is to provide our students with enough knowledge and skills of Estonian to function in every day life, at work or school as well as to help the students successfully pass the state Estonian language exam or an examination at the A2-C1 levels necessary for work.
This course will suit those who have gathered enough courage to start learning the language and speaking Estonian or take the A2-level exam.
Lessons are held using a variety of methods. Our school will not only introduce grammar and vocabulary to you but will also teach you to use idioms and colloquial expressions used in everyday life. Our experience shows that 1,5-hour lessons are too long for complete beginners as the volume of new information is too great and a student cannot concentrate long enough to process the information effectively. On the other hand, 45-minute-long lessons do not allow one to practice the newly acquired skills. This is why at this level we hold 60-minute lessons 2 or 3 times a week.
This course is aimed at preparation for the B1-level exam as well as the 9th grade school examination.
One part of the course is fully dedicated to exam preparation and drilling: exam task completion techniques, dialogue practice and asking questions.
Beside that, the course helps one to start using the language in everyday situations and to communicate with native speakers.
This course is aimed at preparation for the B2-level exam as well as the 12th grade state exam.
The course focuses on enlarging vocabulary, improving communication skills and other language competences. We also pay attention to improving writing and reading skills. Our experienced teachers help you to work on the techniques necessary to pass the language exam successfully.
After the successful completion of our B2-level course, you can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in your field of specialization. You can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain. You can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain your viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
In our C1 course we will teach you to understand a wide range of demanding, longer clauses, and to recognize implicit meaning. You will be able to express ideas fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. During the course, we practice using the language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. Thanks to our lessons you will be able to produce a clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organizational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.
