    Isn't Finnish related to Estonian in some way? - I believe that some words are "loan words" which appear in both languages.

    During Year 7 at school my languages teacher not only taught German but she was German by birth, and so therefore she was teaching her mother tongue - I don't know whether that is an advantage compared to someone who had to learn a second language rather than teaching their first one, but a lot of people thought that she wasn't a very good teacher.

    Yes that's right, Hungarian is also related & they are all distantly related to Turkish.

    I would have obviously thought that Estonian was linked to Latvian, and Finnish with Swedish or something.
