Registration started on Thursday morning at 10:00 EET for free Estonian language courses organised by the Integration Foundation. All the free places in Tallinn were snapped up within 30 minutes, and by 16.00 in Tartu.
Over 1,100 people will get the free Estonian language courses, which will be running via nearly 70 groups. Half of these will be in Ida-Viru County, the other half in Tallinn, plus two groups in Tartu and Pärnu.
Registration for future courses is available at Integratsioon.ee. The courses will run for four and half months. The Integration Foundation is offering courses at the A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1 levels in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, or CEFR (where A1 is the lowest and C2 the highest).
Registration occurs twice per year, in January and August.
