Hey everyone, thanks for publishing this, & for the support! His family is really nice & we're getting along well. When my boyfriend originally told me, I was embarrassed, but now I think it'll be a funny story to tell when I get home. He taught me how to say it correctly, so it should be smooth sailing from here!

I bet everyone thought that was adorable! My dad is originally from Pakistan and my mom and sister and I always laugh with him (not at him) when he makes language blunders

"Thank you" is "Aitäh" and "help (me)" is "aita (mind)". For native speakers the distinction is very clear, but I can see how a beginner might sound similar in those cases.

I'm glad that you're having a good time! I understand your struggle, though. I am also in Estonia for the first time, visiting my own family! I don't know how to speak Estonian, either. Last week, I sat in a cigar lounge listening to an Estonian conversation between my grandmother, my great uncle and his three friends! It was the longest few hours ever! Hahaha. I hope that you have fun for the rest of your visit! Hopefully I do, too! ;) There are so many beautiful things to see!
