Learn Estonian

The Uralic languages use lots of grammatical cases, suffixes and morphing of words which may make it look intimidating to start with. But don't worry: the good news is that there is no distinction made between the male and female pronoun - just one word to remember for each. And uTalk will get you talking with confidence very quickly.§

Fun facts about Estonian

Many people confuse Finnish and Estonian, but they do use some separate vowels such as the Estonian uses ü and üü instead of Finnish y and yy.

Although not a Germanic language, nearly a third of Estonian vocabulary comes from German - for example, the word for glass, klaas, comes from the German glas.

Estonian has an astonishing 14 grammatical cases!
