Mother Tongue Day 2023

On 14 March, Estonia celebrates Mother Tongue Day.

Anyone interested in learning Estonian can take a peek on the Global Estonians website that offers information to the diaspora and anyone with a soft spot for Estonia.

In Estonia, you can attend the public reading of Estonian texts at the Office of the President of Estonia.

The online Estonian Dictation has been challenging native speakers for some time now and this year is no different, starting at 10.25. 

At 13.00, the University of Tartu holds a discussion on inclusive language policy and Estonian language learning, and you can watch it live or as a recording.

On 15 March, a documentary about the linguist Mati Hint screens in Tartu.
