A new language and cultural centre, the Estonian Language House, opened in Tallinn on Wednesday. The aim of the centre, is to help non-native speakers of Estonian to develop their language skills as well as to get a better intro into Estonian culture, with a view to participating in it more fully.
The centre, at 5 Rävala Avenue in central Tallinn, reportedly offers full services in learning Estonian, with practical opportunities to work towards competency in the language, using key language learning methodologies, as well as providing comprehensive guidance on integration into Estonian society.
The centre was opened with an inaugural rining of a school bell, a building tour, and presentations and speeches. Three noted expats in Estonia who have obtained fluency in the language, startup entrepreneur Evgenia Trofimova, standup comic Stewart Johnson (US) and TV cameraman Mustafa Celik (TUR), put their language skills to the test with a ''speed talk'' contest, as part of the event.
