Estonian:

A bit silly question but I'd like to know what foreigners would say about the languages.

They do sound similar and I do like 'em both but I guess Estonian by a bit! A little bit more rare and exotic.

Well, what about them in real life? When they're spoken/written and not sung?

I'm asking this because my estonian "friends" said that "Työlki ellää" song sounds awful because they sing in finnish and estonian is much more prettier language :?
I just wanted to ask if you foreigners can see any big difference between them.

Here are some random interviews, if you want to check them out and tell is finnish so awful and estonian so pretty? :-)

As I've already said, I love both. Don't think Estonian is a lot better, when it comes to sounding. I do kinda find differences when I hear they're accent but I don't know how to explain them.
