020 Say Labas: Numbers


This is episode 20 of the say labas show and in this episode we’ve gone number crazy here! Its a good idea to know how to count right? at least a little bit… Yeah we thought so too, Lithuanian Numbers are not hard honest. We only learn to count to ten but its a good start. Solveiga teaches us a few very useful sentences that we could use with our Lithuanian buddies, also number related because we love numbers!

Numbers

Tim shares his theory that you only need to count to three in any language and we continue our new segment now officially called “Cities and Towns of Lithuania”, where showcase some of Lithuania’s lesser know but very interesting cities or towns. This weeks town is the “electrifying” city of Elektrėnai. Do you know anyone from there? Have you ever visited this place? Let us know in the comments section below.

Solveiga’s news this week is dedicated to to a special Lithuanian beekeepers celebration that recently took place, it promises to “bee” very interesting. That was a terrible joke sorry! :) We hear how all the beekeepers of Lithuania get together and taste each others summer honey… pretty sweet huh? :)
