We have adopted an objective and efficient approach to learn how to speak a language easily and quickly. We suggest you start by memorizing words, phrases, and practical expressions that you can use in everyday life and that will be useful when traveling.
Getting used to pronouncing words out loud, such as numbers, is an easy exercise you can practice often and at any time throughout the day.
This practice will help you get accustomed to the sounds of your chosen language, making it more familiar.
Once your holidays have begun, whether in Vilnius, Kaunas, or elsewhere in Lithuania, you will be surprised at how familiar and easy to understand it will seem. Furthermore, using a pocket dictionary is always useful, particularly during a trip. It allows you to find the translation of new words and enrich your vocabulary.

Why Speak Lithuanian While Traveling?

As a member of the European Union, the Schengen Area, and the Eurozone, this Baltic State boasts many lakes, forests, and national parks well worth visiting. When visiting the country, do not miss out on major tourist attractions such as the Curonian Spit, the Hill of Crosses, and Trakai Island Castle, the latter being the location of films such as Dungeons & Dragons and Highlander.
If you are interested in the history of Northern and Central Europe, Lithuania could be the perfect destination for a voyage of discovery. Its cultural heritage is strongly influenced by the history and culture of Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Finland, and Romania, which is evident in many aspects, including gastronomy.

Make a Success of Your Stay in Lithuania

Whether you are going to spend a few days with friends on a leisure trip or if you are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful than being able to slip in a few words in the language of your interlocutors. They will appreciate your effort and be more willing to help.

How to Succeed in Having Good Pronunciation Within a Week to a Month?

Spoken by more than 3 million people worldwide, Lithuanian is written with the Latin alphabet, enriched by the use of diacritics and digraphs. Accents can be used to indicate the length of the vowels or the accent of the word. The language also has a pitch accent which distinguishes two mobile intonations, one rough and the other soft.
With 12 vowels and 20 consonants, the pronunciation of Lithuanian is clear and vocalic, closer to Slavic or Romance languages than to Germanic ones due to a lack of aspiration. It is a language of three accents: ascending, descending, and long.

Yuliia Perebyinis :  Спасибо ,отличная и полезная страница. Но есть замечание по функциональности. При изучении нового слова, нет написания его на языке оригинала. Чтоб правильно выучить это слово в дальнейшем ,нужно выходить за рамки страницы и искать , как пишется это слово. Это очень не удобно ,я считаю это серьезным багом. Не достаточно ,при изучении нового языка, слышать слово только на слух ,важно также зрительная память. Надеюсь увидеть версию страницы с полной функциональностью.
tomas beam :  helpful
Norm :  Thanks for this great page! An American, I’ve just learned of my 100% Lithuanian roots at the later age of 63. I will start off my quest to visit Lithuania with a frequent visit to your learn Lithuanian language site so that I will hopefully have clue when I make my way to Lithuania.
Katriel :  I love this page. I have really learn a lot!
Hervay :  I've just visited a friend in Lithuania who is a Lithuanian language Professor and it turns out that "LABA DIENA" does not mean "HELLO". It actually means Good Day or can be used as Good Afternoon. "HELLO" is "LABAS" or "SVEIKI". Labas being the most commonly used. Language courses must be accurate or they become pointless. PLEASE correct this. I will continue to learn and let you know of any other errors. Thank you. Loecsen: "Labas" would be more like "Hi". The difference would be in French between "bonjour" (=hello) and "salut" (=hi). We are far from being the only ones to have chosen this way of greeting each other : https://www.quora.com/Whats-the-Lithuanian-word-for-hello ("But if you are talking to a person that you know or is close to you then say “Labas” because when you say that to a stranger or an older person it might seem a little weird"): are you sure you want to be the "weird person"? :) Our translations are done by professionals. The context for the translation of this theme is as follows: a foreigner meets a person he or she does not know.
Eleanor Collins :  I just want to ask a question. I Lithuanian what they call a 'transparent' language? By that I mean do the sounds of spoken Lithuanian match up exactly with the letters that represent them in a consistent manner - as in Spanish - for example. Or is it more 'opaque' - like English, where one sound can be spelled half a dozen different ways? Thank you in advance for your response.
thaddy :  Just found this. Need it. Will check back if it worked ;) On first glance it looks very structured and concise.
Simona :  Hey! I just discovered your page, I think it's great! I was addicted to one very similar before and I know that it is very helpful when you want to learn a new language. One more thing - there is a mistake in English-Lithuanian course, "Time tracking" section. It says that "I'm leaving tomorrow" means "Aš išvažiuoju šiandien", and it should mean "Aš išvažiuoju rytoj". Thanks for the great page anyway :) Good luck! Simona
Michael :  This is what I've been looking for. My wife is Lithuanian and I am Canadian and I would like to take this free course. Thank you.
Anthony :  Good to get basic phrases down. You need to slow down some of the pronunciation of the phrases. Better yet pronounce each word individually in the sentence. Then say the whole sentence at once.
