Modern English, described at times as the first global lingua franca, is the dominant international language of communication. The initial reason for its expansion beyond the bounds of the British Isles, where it was originally a native tongue, was the British Empire, and by the late nineteenth century its reach was truly global. A working knowledge of English has become a prerequisite in a number of fields, occupations and professions and as a result over a billion people speak English to at least a basic level. The English language is a language that is absorbing aspects of cultures worldwide as it continues to grow.
Tallinn is a cosmopolitan city containing a colourful array of people and cultures, which makes it the perfect place to study English during the Tallinn Summer School. Students can choose to take a beginners’ course in English, as well as intermediate or advanced, all taught entirely in the English language using a highly effective professional method. After developing conversational English from our courses, students may soon use their new skills throughout the streets of multilingual Tallinn.
The course is intended to build the fundamental elements of the language, which are necessary for fully appreciating English-speaking countries. It will provide a valuable step towards establishing the necessary skills demanded for a possible future exchange trip abroad.
The course will build skills at three levels – beginners, intermediate and advanced – using up-to-date materials and modern teaching methods. Before arrival, the participants’ competence in English will be assessed and students assigned to the appropriate group. To test your level and to divide students into groups we use the following language test: Mr Dave Allan, Oxford Placement Test, OUP. All teachers are native speakers and experienced teachers of English.
