Estonian is spoken natively by a bit more than 1 million people. We like the fact that there is a growing demand for Estonian language services from business and private people around the world. Our aim is to satisfy this need by reaching out to our customers, vendors, partners, and prospects.
Apparently, foreigners like the sound of Estonian language, even if they don't undestand it. Estonian is not related to the neighbouring Baltic languages like Latvian and Lithuanian, nor is it related to Russian. It does not belong to Indo-European family of languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Russian etc.); it belongs to the Finno-Ugric language group, which also includes Hungarian and Finnish.
Finnish for an Estonian is much like studying Spanish for an Italian or learning Italian for a Spaniard. It seems like every other Estonian is able to speak Finnish, especially in Northern Estonia. Finnish television was the basis of our English and Finnish language skills and a window to the world during Cold-War era. (All attempts by authorities to block the TV signal were doomed to fail.)
Estonia is a member of the EU since 2004. Estonia's main trade partners are Finland, Sweden, Russia and Latvia as these are our neighbouring countries. The country's strategic position midway between Russia and Scandinavia makes it the land of opportunities although it was the opposite case during oppression years and under Soviet economic planning.
An advantage of all this is that very many of us now speak good English and Finnish, and often Russian, Swedish, and German as well.
We hope that this little view of what it's like on the inside will help you to make a decision that is right for you.
