The goal of instruction at the Centre for Language and Communication of TalTech is to grant learners (students, staff and members of the public) sufficient linguistic and communicative proficiency, both in spoken and written modes, that would enable them to follow developments in their professional field and operate effectively in an international environment. As a well-established international practice of teaching languages requires, instruction at the Centre is provided in language proficiency based groups (CEFR Common European Framework of Reference).
In the academic year 2019/2020 the Centre is pleased to offer learners instruction in a number of different languages as follows:
- Estonian: A1-B1 English based instruction; B2-C2 Estonian-based instruction
- English: B1-C2 English-based instruction

Those interested in learning languages at the Centre are kindly asked to attend the first class of the chosen course (see TalTech Timetable).
Based on the lecturer's recommendations provided to learners in the first class or after, they can declare the subject in ÕIS (Study Information System) or through Open University on the name of the lecturer teaching this specific proficiency level group.
Student attendance in the first class is of utmost importance since based on the information received (the number of students, level of student language proficiency, etc.), groups will be formed and activated. As a rule, language groups will be activated in case at least 10 students register in the first class.
