High Schools don’t generally require students to wear a school uniform and a typical school day is from 8am to 3pm. Subjects include maths, Estonian grammar and literature, sciences, sport, arts and foreign languages. English is taught as the first foreign language in most schools.
According to the Foreign Service Institute, Estonian is the fifth hardest language to learn. Especially for the native English speakers, this language is difficult because it operates with 14 noun cases, but what a fantastic language to have under your belt! Nearly everyone in Estonia speaks a second language, most commonly this is English, however students will still need to be motivated to learn Estonian.
Estonia has warm summers and cold winters. The record high is 36 degrees in summer. The record low is -36 degrees in January. Eastern Estonia and the many Estonian islands tend to experience cooler temperatures.
