Greetings from Australia...

a guy in my life.. is 3rd generation lithuanian-australian... and as a result of that.. as his first language is lithuanian - he learnt english as a young boy.... here in australia (although he is australian born) I'm trying to learn lithuanian...

lucky for me I already speak german as a second language.. but lithuanian compared to german is reallly really really really hard...

so I found one website called.. which is great.. with the building blocks but doesn't put the language together particularly well.. (bc obviously I'm going to have to get myself a proper lithuanian language teacher in melbourne once we're a couple)

I love learning from your website.. its awesome.. and the character and humour you both have on the discussion, plus the information you give is awesome.. ..

there are spotted youtube vid's around to learn lithuanian too which are also good but not the same quality or ease as what you two present..

so just wanted to say thanks...

and hopefully one day when I travel to lithuania .. I'll get the privilege and honour of meeting you both and speaking to you in lithuanian ONLY - instead of damm english!!!!!!!!!
