The courses are generally free of charge for the students of the University of Tartu and for students from other Estonian higher education institutions (See which institutions and universities have a partnership with the University of Tartu).
Visiting students from foreign higher education institutions need to pay for their language courses only if they are fee-paying students at the University of Tartu. In case of the latter, consult with the foreign student office regarding the credit point costs and conditions.
The Spanish language (also called Castilian) is the official language in Spain and numerous Latin American countries. Other official languages in Spain include the Catalan, Basque and Galician language. Spanish is natively spoken by approximately 400 million people, thereby listed as the second most natively spoken language in the world right after Mandarin.
Having evolved from Latin, Spanish is a Romance language that belongs to the Indo-European language family.
Questions in Spanish are written between two question marks (¿De verdad?), while an exclamatory sentence stands between two exclamation marks (¡Hola!). A rather peculiar letter ñ can also be seen in written Spanish.
