Estonian Language Training for Adults with Other Native Languages as Part of Estonian Integration and Employment Policy: Quality, Impact and Organisation
There are nearly 300,000 adults with native languages other than Estonian living in Estonia. Half of them have active knowledge of Estonian, i.e. they understand Estonian and can speak and write it. The other half have fewer Estonian language skills and they would need language training to improve their skills. The share of people with active Estonian language skills has increased and is growing by about one percentage point per year.The survey provides an overview of the demand for Estonian language training for adults, the views of trainers on the provision of Estonian language training, and the organisation, efficiency and effectiveness of Estonian language training provided through the unemployment fund.
