Sveika, Susanne! Thanks for writing the post! Thanks also for the compliments, we'll keep trying to make the episodes better and we'll also try to increase their frequency. I too am anxious to get back to Lithuania. It's been far too long since I was there. Jack :)

Labas Jack ir Raminta!
Aš esu Susanne ir aš iš Švedijos. Man labai patinka Lithuanian Out Loud!

Last year, my job (I'm a librarian) had a project with some libraries i Vilnius. During this project I went to Vilnius twice and the first time I only know how to say labas, taip, ne and ačiu in Lithuanian.

But it felt really strange not being able to understand what people were saying or read any signs so I decided to try to learn some Lithuanian. I started to learn Lithuanian with a book which was quite hard...

Then, during last summer, I found Lithuanian Out Loud! And I really love your program!!!
Unfortunately that was after my second visit to Vilnius (and last during our project).

But when our colleagues come to Sweden I noticed that I understood more and more for each visit.

Now our project is over but I still have contact, by e-mail, with some of the people I met during the project. And next week, I'm going to Vilnius on vacation! It will be really interesting to see if I actually can speak to people in Lithuanian!

I hope you will make many more programs! Thank you again for making them!!!

I love your podcasts. They are great in conjunction with the book my
wife bought for me. You help me learn how to speak when I'm driving or
walking, the book is good for the more esoteric "why"s of the
language.

When I was adding your podcast sync to my phone, I noticed that 4 of
your lessons are not linked to the posts, so they don't show up in a
podcast feed. The episodes are 131, 143, 149, and 197.

I like the audio addition you are putting in the upper right hand corner. Makes things easier. Thank you ! Your site keeps getting better and better : )

I am so glad I found this website, and I hope I will use it a lot in the last week, as I am moving to Vilnius in August for a year, and my language skills are as developed as podcast #1 :D
