Why is Estonian an important language to learn?
Have you always dreamed of experiencing a plethora of cultures in one destination? If you answered yes to that question, then a trip to Estonia definitely needs to be in your future. This amazing country is full of local cultures, as well as an intriguing mix of Slavic, Scandinavian, and Russian. As you are exploring the castles, medieval houses, and the winding alleyways of this charming country, you will find it helpful if you can speak the local language. Just over a million people speak Estonian, and while many of them live within Estonia, some do live in other parts of the world. Imagine knowing exactly what to say to a local when you need to know how to get somewhere or ask where you should eat your next meal. This beautiful language may seem difficult at first, but once you start using it more often, you will surprise yourself with how well you can remember all the words that you need to know to communicate with the new friends that you are making. It will take some time to sort out this Finno-Ugric language that is very slightly similar to both Finnish and Hungarian, yet so different at the same time. Those who live in Estonia will also speak some English, Finnish, or Russian, but they will appreciate your efforts when they learn that you have taken the time to learn their language.
