Teach Yourself Estonian is a self-access course for the independent adult learner of Estonian as a foreign language. Lively dialogues (recorded by Estonian speakers on the accompanying double CD) in authentic Estonian introduce the language, which is then explained in simple English, as it is not assumed that the student has learned a foreign language before. Exercises - written, audio, and pictorial - are used to reinforce learning. Features of the culture of Estonian speakers are also explored. At the end of the book there are a 'taking it further' section, a key to the exercises and Estonian-English and English-Estonian vocabulary lists.
