I don't know, I'd like to keep on learning Estonian and I know that that won't happen if I'm trying to do it alone, so a study group could be useful... I mean I can study on my own, I just don't. I'm always busy or "busy" with something else lol.
I'm still hesitating because I'm supposed to be writing my thesis this autumn and spring, not to mention all the other courses I have. (For example, one of my professors started his course by saying we're going to write a 12-page essay for him. Hoooray that's exactly what I needed!) Like, am I so crazy that I'd give myself extra work (=Estonian) when I'm already feeling like there's not enough time to do everything? Probably...
I have one book, Keelesild
, but none of us really liked it and even our teacher basically abandoned it in the last course we had.* Instead, we were writing our own texts (she gave the topics) or translating news from Finnish to Estonian and Estonian to Finnish. It was really frustrating at times, especially when the journalists had used really odd word choices or phrases, but I kinda liked it too because I could just repeat someone else's words.
I could do something like that again, if you'd be interested in checking the texts. Our teacher was awesome and really read through everyone's translations and corrected them for us, which was very helpful. I could translate and/or write texts on my own, of course, but then I wouldn't know if I had made mistakes or if there's a better way to phrase something.
*On top of everything else, it was hilariously outdated.
The main character phoned the bus station
and asked when the buses leave to Tartu. And when I asked the teacher what's the difference between two bus types that were mentioned in the text, she said it doesn't matter because those buses haven't been used for years...
Also, everything was in kroons.
