11. October - 11. October

National Library of Estonia Narva mnt 11

In line with the theme of the year, the traditional Skills Day will focus on library and broader education topics, as well as academic expression and recreational language. You can certainly learn even more by listening to presentations on the links between the Estonian spelling dictionary and school informatics in the development of language skills.
The creation, availability and use of terms will be discussed.

The seminar is free of charge and the event will be broadcast live. There will be both sign-language and written interpretation.
