'A Dozen Questions About Estonia' Website Launched ({{commentsTotal}})


The Estonian Institute, in co-operation with the Baltic Film and Media School at Tallinn University, have created a website introducing Estonia and Estonians through quizzes, film clips, blogs and language tests.

The "A Dozen Questions about Estonia" project was inspired by promotional booklets about Estonia, first published in 1999 and translated into 16 different languages.

Now the original 12 questions, asked in these booklets in order to introduce Estonian geography and culture to foreigners, have been turned into short films by the students of the Baltic Film and Media School.

The films, along with the original texts, give an overview of Estonia and the nature of Estonians. In addition, 12 different language tests based on the materials can be used as a study material for learning Estonian.

At present, "A Dozen Questions about Estonia" website is available in Estonian, English and Russian.
