In this week’s show is a little long but we will be going over one of the key fundamentals in learning not only Lithuanian but any language – the verb to be. If you can get this right early you will be well on your way to success with Lithuanian.
This weeks episode also includes the usual segments:
- Talk time
- Lithuanian News of the week
- Fun Lithuanian Facts
Tim also reminisces about the first sentence he ever learnt in Lithuanian and how he tried to impress Solveiga’s mom with his slick moves. Solveiga tells us some really interesting facts about Lithuania’s president Dalia Grybauskaitė!
