An e-course designed for non-Estonian speakers launched

A free e-course that takes the viewer through the most important events of Estonian cultural history has been launched.

Kultuuriklikk is an animated interactive online course that tells the story from the arrival of Estonia’s first inhabitants and Estonians’ battles for freedom to the cultural independence, the Singing Revolution and the country’s accession to the European Union.

The course is designed for non-Estonian speakers living in Estonia and for foreigners who are interested in the Estonian culture. The course supports learning Estonian through exploration of Estonia’s cultural and historical background. The course is equipped with a dictionary and interactive exercises and it’s free of charge for anyone who wishes to use it.

The course has been produced by the team that produced an Estonian language e-course, Keeleklikk, for non-Estonian speakers. Both courses are available at keeleklikk.ee.

The course was financed by the Estonian Ministry of Culture, the Integration and Migration Foundation “Our People” and the European Fund for the Integration of Third-Country Nationals.

    Is there a version of the course in English? I found the language course in English but not the history course.

    I don’t see the English version either. Kultuuriklikk seems to be for those whose Estonian knowledge is above average already, NOT for beginners or those who don’t know any Estonian at all..

    The course doesn’t work well if your browser is zoomed. Ctrl+0 (that’s zero) will set the zoom level back to 100%.

    The web developers should work on this–if the browser is zoomed, the pages should allow scrolling.

    It seems the culture course is in demo still and has not been translated yet 🙁

    Course introduced if appreciable. But it should also be in English if you reach to mass. I like to learn culture & history of European countries but sad to see that it’s available only in Estonian language.
