Crack the code and Learn to Speak Estonian

A simple way to learn the basics in Estonian without having to learn the crazy grammar.

- Looking for a powerful way to get started with Estonian?

- Getting tired of studying words and phrases that you can’t really use?

- Is Estonian grammar driving you crazy?

- Having difficulties finding simple yet effective materials to learn Estonian?



Hey, have you ever tried to learn Estonian

How did it go? Tricky?

They say that Estonian is one of the hardest European languages to learn. Just like Finnish and Hungarian, Estonian is an Uralic language. As a result, it has almost no vocabulary in common with other European languages. 

Estonian grammar can be extremely hard to master; it has 14 cases… 

On top of that, there are only 1.1 million Estonian speakers and most of them live in, you guessed it - Estonia. 

But even if you live in Estonia, it can be hard to find people to practice with. Most Estonians speak good English and will reply in English if they know that you’re just a beginner.  

Is there a way to tackle such a lovely but intimidating language like Estonian?



The most important principle to learning Estonian quickly that most people forget


If you’re familiar with our method you know that learning first things first is the key to quick progress in the beginning.

The Pareto principle (also known as the 80–20 rule) states that you get 80% of the results from 20% of the work. This principle can be applied in language learning as well.


In language learning the ratio is more like 95-5, which means that native speakers only use 5% of the words, 95% of the time.


You see, languages contain hundreds of thousands of words but only a fraction of them are used daily by native speakers, and you only need a fraction of these words for your first conversations.

Besides that, your first conversations in a new language will always be the same.


You’ll be asked questions like;

- What’s your name?
- Where are you from?
- What do you do here?
- Do you live here?
- For how long have you been studying....?

Just learning a few answers to these questions by heart is not enough. You want to be able to construct your own sentences and speak naturally, right?

To create your first sentences you need important pronouns like: I and you; verbs like, can, do, want, be, have and a few nouns to get started.

But, just learning these important words isn’t quite enough…

At school or in traditional language courses you learn lots of words. Yet, most people can’t hold conversations in their target language after they finish their course.


Because to speak a language fluently you need to become good at two things:

1. You need to know a lot about the language. That means that you need to know many words and you need to know how the grammar works.


2. But what’s even more important, and what most people forget is that you need to know how to use these words and grammar rules in real, natural conversations.

So it’s not so much about “how much you know”, but about how well you can use what you’ve learned.

Which will help you communicate effectively with those around you and genuinely express who you are.

You see, learning a language is not just about learning a bunch of words. Your fluency is going to depend on how well and quickly you can put the words and grammar you know together.

At school we learn a lot of words and grammar. The problem is that we don’t spend enough time practicing what we have learned.

We don’t spend enough time constructing sentences that are personal to us.

Just learning is not enough, you need to activate what you learn inside your brain.

In other words: you use it, or you lose it!

By using what you’ve learned you aren’t just less likely to forget new words, you also train your brain to quickly produce sentences in your new language. 

If you practice doing this long enough, you’ll eventually become fluent.

The Ideal Materials to learn Estonian

But where can you find a language course that not only teaches you the most important vocabulary, but also trains you to form sentences, so that you can eventually hold conversations with native speakers?



We tested all major language learning courses but we couldn’t find anything which came close. We wanted to create something better than any other course on the market.

My friend Lucas and I spent years of our life trying to figure out what the most important words for beginners are and how to teach them in an effective way.

We wanted to create the ideal course for those who want to learn a new language from scratch. A course that focused on real results.


After more than a decade of trial and error and having learned more than 10 language ourselves, Lucas and I came to the conclusion that if we wanted a program that teaches you how to speak Estonian from the beginning, we …


- Should teach the minimum amount of words that you can use to make the maximum amount of combinations.


- Should focus on the most important vocabulary that you’ll need for your first conversations


- The materials should come with native speaker audio and video learning tools


- The focus should be on the student; our priority is to let the student construct their own sentences!


- The program should be super user-friendly.


It wasn’t easy, but after years of testing, experimenting and seeing our students getting results we finally launched the ultimate recourse for beginners.

And we’ve called it:


VocaBooster Estonian!

With VocaBooster Estonian we’ve hand -picked the most important words in Estonian for you, so that you can start speaking Estonian, right away!


But WAIT, who are you guys?

Who exactly are you guys?

Lucas and I have dedicated the last ten years of our lives to learning foreign languages and we’ve tested all the major courses and methods.

Not only have we learned many foreign languages for fun, we’ve also lived in many different countries where we had to speak multiple languages on a daily basis. We designed this course for people who want to speak a foreign language in the real world, not just to pass an exam.

This language learning journey has brought Jan to over 100 countries and I’ve learned over 10 languages. Lucas speaks even more languages than Jan.

Over the years we’ve also interviewed many of the world's most accomplished language learners. We’ve learned what works and implemented it in our own methodology.

We also regularly speak at language events all over the world. We don’t just give these talks in English. Below you can see Lucas giving a presentation in Russian, in various cities in Russia, and even in Kyrgyzstan.


Helping people from all over the world to learn foreign languages is what makes us feel alive.

I’ve known Jan and Lucas for a few years and I’ve always found their language learning ideas and tips extremely useful. I was so impressed by Lucas’ story that I even mentioned him in my TED talk as a very inspiring polyglot. The talk has been watched by over 4.5 million people. 

We’ve had dozens of hours of conversation about language learning, so I know that these guys know their stuff about language learning, especially when someone is just starting. 


Highly recommended!

I have tested most language applications, books and courses out there and I can honestly say that language boost uses one of the best methods. It gets you from A-B very quickly and cuts out a lot of the useless rubbish a traditional language school might teach you. 

If you are a real stickler for detail and grammar etc. it could be a bit light, but if you are just looking to pick up and start using the language quickly, I can highly recommend these guys!

Jan and Lucas have more experience learning foreign languages than almost anyone on the planet. 

If you want to learn to speak a new language and learn quickly, I recommend you pay attention to what these guys have to say!

Will VocaBooster Estonian

work for me?

This program has been designed for:

  • Absolute beginners
  • People who tried to learn Estonian in the past but can’t utter a proper sentence


What you will get...

Now, let us tell you exactly what you will get when you enroll in VocaBooster Estonian; 


The VocaBooster Estonian eBook with:

The most important vocabulary in Estonian​. We’ve added images and translations for each word for better memorization. 

Example sentences for the words that we teach. This way you learn to make sentences from the start and will better memorize the new vocabulary. 

Achieve 100% comprehension of every little detail with the word-by-word translations that we’ve added. 

We’ve added simple grammar notes to help you understand the structure of the language. You don’t have to memorize anything yet. 

The most important thing at this stage is to get a feel for the language and to understand how the language works.



Now you have an idea of how the language works, it’s time for some serious input. Read the eBook again in small chunks of 20 entries each time. 

Listen to the native audio recordings carefully and repeat the keywords out loud, followed by the example sentence. 

Try to memorize the key word first, later you can also try to memorize the translations of the example sentences.

Each study session shouldn't take longer than 20 minutes.



    Once you’ve studied the content from the ebook and you’ve listened to the audio over and over again, it’s time to train your output.

    A great way to do that is by using Anki.


    We’ve included an Anki Flashcard Deck* with the content of the course. This will allow you to reinforce the words and sentences that you have learned by using Anki’s Spaced Repetition System.  


    These flashcard decks are a great tool to keep everything that you learn fresh in your mind and not forget it anymore!


    *The Anki app is free for desktop and Android users, they have a paid version for iOS (Iphone users).


    What do our students say about VocaBooster?

    You learn the vocabulary in context and that really helps to memorize and to remember things. These are the words that you're going to use constantly, so I think for beginners this is really, really great! I highly recommend it!

    Conor Clyne

    First I thought, that the example sentences wouldn't have such a big impact on the learning progress, but when I realized that I started placing adverbs and pronouns in the right position just after having studied some phrases before, I knew that was effective.

    I must say that I am very happy with it! I have learned German for more than a year but mainly enriching my passive vocabulary (with Assimil and LingQ). When I will have learned the 500 words and sentences, I have the feeling I will finally feel more comfortable in speaking.

    Your courses seem to be the perfect middle ground in-between saying a few cursory words, and really going for greater fluency with Glossika being my presence for that.

    Frequently asked question

    Isn’t VocaBooster just a word list? Can’t I just download a frequency list from the internet?

    No, VocaBooster is much more than that. Although this course is based on the essential vocabulary (the Magical 2.5%), we provide you more than just a word list.

    All entries come with images, native audio, word-for-word translations and grammar notes. We also provide flashcard decks so that you can learn the content in an interactive way using the “Anki” app on your smartphone.

    VocaBooster provides training materials that will be useful to you for the first 3 to 6 months of your learning journey.

    What does VocaBooster offer that similar products on the market don’t?


    VocaBooster is the only resource that makes use of the More-with-Less Method

    With the More-with-Less Method you’ll achieve the maximum amount of speech with the minimum number of words. In fact, we won't teach you more than 500 words in this course.


    But how will you be able to speak Estonian with only 500 words? 

    When we created this method we made sure that we handpicked only the most important words that you need for your daily conversations. We avoid difficult grammar.


    Isn’t VocaBooster too expensive?

    Learning a language with VocaBooster will give you a head start towards attaining fluency. We have spent hundreds (if not thousands) of hours on research – selecting, translating, checking and testing the most useful content.

    The good news is that all this hard work has made it possible for you to save lots of time and frustration in learning vocabulary that is irrelevant for beginners.

    If you want to save time, avoid frustration and gain momentum in your Estonian studies, this small investment in yourself will definitely pay off very quickly.

    Who is VocaBooster for?

    For beginners who want to reach a conversational level of a language in record time!

    Learning with Vocabooster will be highly effective for those who practice what they’ve learned with real people.

    It can also be a great tool for intermediate level students who can already hold simple conversations. In such cases, VocaBooster can help you to think, translate and speak faster and more fluently.

    Can I get my money back if I don’t find VocaBooster useful?

    Yes. If you don’t find this tool useful, just let us know within 30 days and we will give you a refund. No questions asked.
