012 Say Labas: To have

Hey welcome back! In episode 6 we covered the verb “to want” so in this weeks episode we decided to cover another verb… yip the verb “to have”.

This episode follows the same sort of structure as episode 6, we will congregate the verb as well as negate the verb all interesting stuff but we hope you are starting to notice a bit of a pattern here…?

Lithuanian to have

Solveiga tells us an interesting story of how a Lithuanian fireman Aidas Ardzijauskas spent his summer, and Tim tells us all about storks and why Lithuanians love them, Solveiga chips in with some interesting stork facts of her own… Have a listen, are all Lithuanian’s this clued up when it comes to storks?
