A recent article by The Pie News highlights that a free Estonian course introduced by the Estonian government has hit 30,000 enrolments in one year. Offered on an app platform, Speakly, the program was launched in the year of the country’s centenary, to help people learn the language for free.
“Estonian is a specialised course, that is free and directed to all foreigners, including the local Russian minorities, who really want to learn the language but who previously didn’t have great solutions,” said Speakly co-founder OttOjamets.
Considering Estonia is emerging as the new favorite in Europe for studies with its competitive tuition fees structure and scholarship options in comparison to other leading studies abroad destinations, the free Estonian course on Speakly offers a good opportunity for aspiring students to learn the language.
With high-quality higher education, internationally accepted degrees & a well-developed technology sector, Estonia is considered a safe target country for an international degree. Estonia is also one of the most developed digital society in the world and the start-up haven of Europe.
“Estonia’s higher education focuses on strong links with industry; as a student you will be able to gain practical experience, even design your own start-up. ” says Payal Rajpal, Ambassador for Study Estonia, a program that was launched in India last year to encourage Indian students to study specialized courses in Estonia like Cyber Security, IT, Robotics etc.
She adds that Estonia offers international students in-country employment after graduation as they are granted 9 months stay back option after their course completion to search for a job. “Estonia is a great choice for studies as it has International standard of education, with post-study work opportunities,” she explains.
