They are language texts, and yes that is the pattern. But they aren't sequenced in alphabetical order and there are only three or four of them. The first one is an A1 text E nagu Eesti (E as in Estonia) and there's also T as in Tallinn and L as in Lugemik. I'm guessing that K as in Kihnu is the latest one and wondering about what level it is because the others are quite good but level-wise there seems to be a bit of a jump from one book to the next. So I'm wondering whether they're adding a more advanced one or filling in a "gap" between existing texts (or just additional practice). Anyway they are monolingual texts published in Estonia so they are difficult to find here.

Yes K nagu Kihnu is between E nagu Eesti and T nagu Tallinn. It is written "Eesti keele õpik kesktasemele B1 (2) + B2" on the cover.

(id) I finnished the Duolingo course several days ago.

(tl) In total, I have learned 1062 new words on Memrise, although the real number is lower, because different aspects/focuses of a verb are counted as different words.

The new semester has started and today I'll have the first Spanish class after the vacations.

I am not actually learning it, rather dabbling. Last semester I was going to apply for Erasmus in Croatia, but missed the deadline. In spite of this, I decided that will learn some Croatian anyway.

I have another chance to apply for Erasmus in Croatia, although I am not sure if I will do that, because I need to find out whether that university is suitable for me, taking into account my major, and whether I will be able to take suitable courses there.

Unfortunately no. Linguistics major isn't available in my university. My major is translation/interpreting.

Oh cool! Do you have to pick a specific language pair for that? I don't know of any university or college here that offers a single program for both. I've seen diplomas for interpretation and diplomas/degrees for translation.

Yes. My major is English-Ukrainian translation. Last semester I chose interpreting, but now I have practise of interpreting and translation combined as a single subject.
I have Spanish as the second foreign language, but I do not have classes of Spanish-Ukrainian translation. Maybe I'll have them next year.
Sorry for not answering earlier.

Unfortunately, I didn't have time to study languages lately. Now I have to prepare for lots of exams, so I'll continue with my TAC after 20 June.

I've done chapters 11-12 from the phonology textbook to distract a little bit from exam preparation which is boring and exhausting.
