Yes I agree.. the Estonian language is a member of the Baltic Finnic group of the Finno-Ugrian family of languages and is one of the few languages in Europe that is not Indo-European.  It is also related to the  Finnish and Livonian, Vepsian and Votic languages and related to Hungarian.

It is written in the Roman alphabet and is very consistent and regular.

Estonian is the native language of about one million people living in the Republic of Estonia, situated on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland at the eastern end of the Baltic Sea. It is also spoken by another hundred thousand people of Estonian birth or descent living in Sweden, Germany, the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia and several other countries.
The country has had a turbulent and fascinating history, largely owing to its sensitive strategic position. To its north lies Finland, to the west, Sweden, to the south, Latvia and to the east, Russia.
