It's important to note that not all parts of the world are keen to compliments. For instance, people in Western countries tend to compliment everyone. Whether it's a coworker, barista, friend, family, or even a complete stranger, complimenting is considered normal. So, how about in Estonia?
While the answer depends on the situation and circumstance, in general, people in Estonia believe it's unusual to compliment a stranger. In fact, if you compliment an Estonian, you might be met with an uncomfortable smile and awkward glance.
This is not because Estonians are rude, but they tend to be reserved. So, being complimented by a complete stranger is putting them in the spotlight. If you don't get the reaction from an Estonian that you'd usually expect elsewhere, don't be offended.
However, when it comes to visiting an Estonian home or being invited into a house by an Estonian friend, it would not hurt to give them a compliment or two! Not only will this boost their self-esteem, but you'll be showing your respect to their home and them.
There's no reason to be scared of Estonians or the Estonian language! Once you familiarize yourself with the Estonian culture, you should be able to get along better with Estonians. As for the language, all it takes is a little time and dedication, and you should be fluent in no time!
But, when it comes to learning a new language, so much depends on the learning resource you use. If you don't want to use a traditional textbook or attend classes to learn Estonian, then we have the perfect option for you.
