I graduated from the University of Tartu in 1996 in the specialty of Estonian (as a foreign language). In 2011, I graduated from the Andras Adult Education / Andragogue qualification course. I have complemented myself in various courses in Estonia, Italy (Europass Teacher Academy) and Malta (ETI and School Education Gateway). After completing the university, I worked as an Estonian language teacher in Tartu Annelinna High School and Tallinn Arte Gymnasium. I have been working at Multilingua since 1999. I teach Estonian using Russian and English at levels A1-C1 both in individual study and in groups. In 2011, I participated in a teleproject, teaching the Estonian language to aliens who came to Estonia in the documentary series “Love Without Borders.” Starting from 2016, I work as a methodologist at Multilingua.
I think every hour must be well-targeted and fun. I use a lot of games in the class because even learning grammar can be hidden inside a board game. The courage to speak in a foreign language is more important than mistakes. When the courage has been achieved, the interest will arise to speak more precisely and correctly. I ask my students in every class: “What’s new?” On the one hand, I wonder how they are doing, but on the other hand, I would like them to really talk. I am a patriot of Estonia and the Estonian language. I do everything in order for my students also to be patriots of Estonia and the Estonian language.
