The Russian Language in the Capital of Estonia

Tallinn is the capital of Estonia, an old and modern city at the same time. Despite the turbulent history, the city retained the medieval layout, fortress walls, many ancient towers, cathedrals, houses. It was due to this that in 1997 Old Tallinn was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The old town is the oldest part of Tallinn, it was here that the first settlements appeared. From the XI-XV century to the present day most of the buildings, a network of medieval streets and a large part of the wall (one of the best preserved ancient city walls in Northern Europe) have been preserved. In the Old Town there are the medieval town hall, the church of St. Nicholas (Niguliste), the church of St. Olaf (Oleviste), the church of the Holy Spirit, the Dome Cathedral, the Dominican convent, as well as the Orthodox cathedral of Alexander Nevsky and the church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker.

Vyshgorod is part of the Old Town. In the XII-XIV centuries, the Order Castle of Toompea was built on Vyshgorod. Over the castle towers the 48-meter long tower «Long Herman», erected in 1360-1370. The flag on the top of Long Herman is one of the symbols of Estonia. In the rebuilt castle of Toompea is the Parliament of Estonia.

In Tallinn, tourists will find a variety of stylish restaurants, small cafes and cafeterias, where you can taste hot, exuding an unusually tempting scent of cinnamon, rolls, the strongest aromatic coffee and amusing marzipan figurines.

Translation services

The most developed industries in Tallinn, where translation services from English to Russian may be required, are:

• seaport — transport insurance, international transportation — Custom Cargo Declarations, waybills, packing lists;
• shipyards, machinery — guides and instructions for installation and operation of equipment;
• sewing — translation of products, printed materials, which conducive to the advancement of products and equipment;
• food industry — restaurant menus, studies on the process of food production;
• trade — contracts and partnership agreements, accompanying documents to goods -invoices, orders etc.

People who lead an active and mobile way of life are often difficult to attend a foreign language lesson at the exact time. There is a desire to study at home or in the workplace, thus saving time and energy that are required for visiting a regular class. Distance learning for Russians on Skype is individual training based on Internet telephony, i.e. the teacher and the student communicate with each other in the Skype program. This is especially true for residents of Tallinn, where it is not so easy to find schools with Russian education.

RTS was helpful when I almost lost a hope to get a visa. Simultaneously, the price-list is enough democratic one!
