Finnish is spoken by approximately 5 million people. It tends to be similar to the related Hungarian, although this language, apart from similar sentence construction and vocabulary and morphology, is considerably different. Neighbouring languages that are very similar to Finnish include Estonian, which belongs to the Baltic Finnic branch of the Finno-Ugric languages.
