Practical Information

To sign up for Estonian courses, choose a suitable course from “languages and courses”. Select the Estonian course you wish to attend and fill out the application form. You need to give your date and year of birth, your address, email, phone number and Estonian ID number. Then we will send you an invoice. If you want to be sure of getting a place on your course, you need to pay in time.

When we receive your payment, we will send you a conformation letter. During the week before the courses start, Opus Lingua will look at the number of enrolments for each course. If there are too few enrolments for a course, it cannot start. If so, we will refund the full course fee.

You can pay:

  • by using net banking to transfer the payment to Opus Lingua bank account EE072200221062279454 Opus Lingua OÜ

If you plan to take the Estonian language proficiency examination at Foundation Innove after the course, then you have to register for the exam by the first date of the previous month, i.e. if the exam is on 7 November, then you have to register for the exam by 1 October. Later applications will not be accepted. After a successful completion of the exam, it is possible to get a refund of 320 EUR from the cost of the course. In order to do this, you need to submit documents to Foundation Innove. Please write to me know if the exam has been successfully passed because you need documents digitally signed by me or the invoice and payment order with an original signature to get the refund. It depends on whether you wish to submit the documents digitally or on paper. I will send you the documents within a few days after receiving the letter.
