Lithuanian classes will be the time when you learn language while not only doing exercises and tasks, but also interacting, playing, singing and watching Lithuanian movies. This way you’ll be building basic language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing. And remember - there are no wrong answers, only good attempts.

 

The goal of this course is to introduce you to the fundamentals of Lithuanian language and culture and it suggests not only basic communication in real-life situations (Meeting People, Ordering Meals, Getting around the City, etc.), but also basic knowledge about Lithuanian culture.

 

After this course you will be able to:

 

  • introduce yourself, give basic information about yourself and ask simple questions
  • understand and use basic expressions and simple sentences in routine everyday situations
  • deal with everyday social situations and handle simple shopping situations
  • make sense of written Lithuanian with the necessary aids
  • has an idea of main cultural trends in the post-war Lithuania
