Puzzled by Estonian?
I’m here to help!
I taught myself Estonian all the way from ordering a dictionary on Amazon and learning grammar from Wikipedia to passing the highest-level language exam.
While doing that I started learning “difficult” languages like Russian, Hungarian, Greek, and Mandarin.
Combined with 7 years of Classical Latin in school, I learned one important thing:
Understanding the structure of language makes learning almost effortless.
Decode Estonian, build a foundation
Estonian has a reputation for being a language that is hard to learn.
The truth is, every language is “hard” and “easy” to learn, depending on what you know already.
If you have a foundation of how languages are structured, picking up another one is really easy:
grasping the important 80% of the grammar will take you a day,
making sense of all kinds of inputs becomes much easier as a result.
My mission is to build a useful model of language in people’s minds, so that language learning becomes easy.
