LL0250 – Valentina Neturi Sesers Valentina Does Not Have A Sister

Hi there, I’m Jack and I’m Gintarė and welcome back to Lithuanian Out Loud where we offer the world the Lithuanian language.  


According to the BBC News article, “Lithuanian Ban on Soviet Symbols,” it is now against the law to display flags, emblems, badges or insignia with the swastika or hammer and sickle.  The laws in Lithuania are more strict than recently passed laws in Estonia and Russia is unhappy with these laws.  According to Russia, the Baltic States were liberated by the Soviets from the Nazis in World War II.  Russia objects to equating the hammer and sickle with the swastika.  


Lithuanian ban on Soviet symbols


Today let’s pick up with the accusative singular and plural and the genitive singular and plural.  This is mostly a practice episode with some new vocabulary.  We'll leave a space after the English so you can attempt to say it in Lithuanian before it's translated.  Good luck!  Sėkmės!
