Interesting.

English is de facto THE international language, not to be compared with Chinese or Russian.

As for Esperanto, forget about it. It's especially unsuitable for Estonias because Esperanto is based upon Latin (including Romance), Germanic, and Slavic languages, and has an Indo-European "way of thinking".

Conclusion: If you want to live in Estonia for a considerable amount of time, learn the language. ;)

English may be an international language, but so is Mandarin Chinese and Russian.

A solution would be a non-national language like Esperanto. Interestingly nine British MP's have nominated Esperanto for the Nobel Peace Prize 2008.
