Chris, our third guest, says he now feels somewhere between American and Estonian - “I'm never going to be Estonian. And I just, I don't make sense in America.”

Turns out, all he needed to start taking Estonian language learning seriously, was to miss one train ride with his Erasmus friends. And thanks to singing in a choir, taking intensive language courses and bathing in “Estonian showers” as he calls it - he can now confidently add Estonian to one of the languages that he speaks.

Listen more about, why he enjoys the minus degrees here, how he loves Estonian dairy products, about differences learning Estonian in Tartu vs in Tallinn and how he finds Estonian grocery stores relaxing. 😎
