A start.... just a start, March 15, 2003
Although this is from a series called "Talk Now!" and it's entitled "Learn
Estonian"... it hardly comes close to doing any of that. It only allows you to
learn some words, and reinforces them through little games. However, if you
wanted to say anything more than a simple phrase or word, this doesn't help you.
This would be good for someone who might be visiting Tallinn and wants to
impress the natives with a few words in Estonian. But if one seriously wants to
learn about this language, even the Colloquial Estonian course is better, coming
with tapes that have full sentences and teach some grammar. (although this
program has its own weaknesses, too).
Even though there is no audio program, the texts from Indiana University's
curriculum seems to be the best... if you can get them!
