KideoCall – online playgroups for language learning

Raising kids abroad? Struggle to maintain or develop their native or local language? Let your kids learn and practice while playing with native-speakers!

How KideoCall works

KideoCall helps families living abroad to develop their preschoolers’ native or local language and cultural bond. Via video calls, specially trained coaches engage 3-8 year-olds in activities that support their language and social skills development.

One session brings together up to 4 kids from around the world for 1-2 hours. KideoCall sessions are currently held in Estonian or Russian. Our sessions are suitable for kids that (at least) understand the language to some extent, even if they don’t speak it (well).

Kids love those get-togethers because the activities are based on their interests, i.e. they get a say in what to do or play, and they find friends that share their cultural roots. With the help of KideoCall coaches, kids can practice their native/local language and learn new vocabulary through role-playing, board games, or crafting.

During the sessions, children are systematically encouraged to not sit at the desk or in front of the screen. Instead, active games and movement are promoted.

The booking process is simple: to use KideoCall, you book a time here (or write to liis@kideocall.com), get a confirmation with a link to the video call, and start the call.

So far, KideoCall has brought more than 1,000 hours of active, social, and child-specific learning experience to more than 300 kids.

10 professional teachers and youth workers have been trained to effectively and meaningfully work with kids online.

KideoCall is cooperating with the Ministry of Education and Research of Estonia, Tallinn University, and EdTech Estonia to further develop the e-learning methodology.

94% of parents say they were surprised how engaged and happy their kids were during and after those sessions.

My children were very excited before the KideoCall and were really looking forward to meeting the coach. Both children really enjoyed their time with the coach.

4 y.o. & 6 y.o., Germany 


It was very nice to see my child being engaged in different activities and communicating with new people in Estonian. 

3 y.o., Netherlands


My daughter was a bit shy at first but the coach quickly engaged her and she stayed focused and happy for the whole hour. She really enjoyed it and was excited when I asked if she wanted to do it again.

7 y.o., Australia


The coach chose the activities based on the child’s interests. The child could practice Estonian language, the dialogue covered many topics. At the end of the session, the coach played a song during which the kid cleaned the room. They called it the “cleaning song” and it worked very well. The child enjoyed that someone was there only for him and was interested in his desires. The first experience was positive.

5 y.o., Switzerland


My son really liked it! He even wished the session could have been longer and that more kids could have been present. In any case, he had fun and was able to practice Estonian.

6 y.o., Ireland


We live abroad and there is a lack of the possibilities to practice Estonian language. We had been looking for an online teacher for months, but we hadn’t found anyone who would be really helpful. The trial went well and our child seemed very interested. I have already booked a new video call, and we definitely intend to use the service in the future.
