Grammar structure

Typologically, Estonian represents a transitional form from an agglutinating language to a fusional language. It is similar to Finnish and Hungarian but unlike them, Estonian has lost vowel harmony. Nouns and pronouns do not have grammatical gender, but nouns and adjectives decline in fourteen cases which is the most difficult part of learning the Estonian grammar. The canonical word order is considerably more flexible than English, but the basic order is SVO (subject–verb–object).

In this course you will study Estonian grammar structure and rules. Every grammar topic starts with a theory lesson and is followed by multiple interactive and free exercises to help you train your skills.
