Everyone who knows their native language is able to learn any other. If you are going to learn 50 languages, like the famous Estonian polyglot Pent Nurmekund, or 30 languages, like academician Paul Ariste, then with the most ambitious plans, you should start with the native language and the language of the country where you live.
Further, we advise you to study the multinational communication language of the European Union – English or French. So, there are already three languages: native, Estonian, English. What about the languages in your family? Quite often, people create families with speakers of other languages, and you, in this situation, will probably want to learn the language of your new relative, since speaking with a person in his native language is speaking with his heart.
Perhaps one day another language will become the mother tongue of your grandchildren, since it is the mother tongue of one of the parents. You want to understand them and study another or several languages of your relatives. What about work? Your colleagues and your clients, your work assignments? So you will not notice how life will make you a polyglot. Happiness, as the hero of one movie said, is when they understand you. Want to be a happy person – start by learning languages!

Choosing shoes, you cannot buy shoes one size smaller: it is impossible to walk in them. But if the shoes are not squeezed and even vice versa, one size larger than yours, walking in them cannot take you off with joy. Just as the shoes need to be selected in size, the student’s book should correspond to your age and starting level of proficiency in the language being studied. Consultants of the Dialoog will help you sort through the many student’s books sold in our office. For each level, we have from 5 to 10 student’s books options from various publishing houses. They differ in volume, themes and presentation of grammar.
It all depends on your needs: whether you need to learn how to communicate or correspond, whether you are interested in a common language or professional vocabulary and language skills in servicing clients, in economic analysis, when working at art exhibitions, in medicine or law. Book Department of Dialoog has been selling student’s books for learning languages at universities, schools, courses and for individual study for many years.
Of course, you know that one of the professions that arose in ancient times and survived centuries is the profession of translator.
People had to communicate with enemies and friends, and those who knew several languages helped to understand and read the documents provided. Later, noble language became fashionable among the nobility, but it was impossible to learn all languages, and as international contacts grew, the profession of translator became increasingly popular. Typography laid the foundation for a qualified translation, when it was necessary to translate foreign books into their native languages: initially the Bible, later – scientific and literary texts.
A translator should have many qualities that are not necessary for other philologists: good memory, high intellectual development, rich vocabulary, the ability to instantly change one language to another, good knowledge of the field in which he translates, literacy, ability to concentrate and take with a lot of study. Translation company Dialoog cooperates with two hundred of the best translators in Estonia and other countries that meet these requirements.
