Titanikas The Titanic

 

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

 

Where are you from, Gintare?  I am from Lithuania.  What part?  From Kaunas.  From Kaunas, okay, and you're just visiting in the United States?  No, I am working and now I am dancing.  

 

Dancing!  So, we can finish this up so you can go dancing.  Thank you.

 

Gintarė and Vytautas, her partner Vytautas are great dancers and I'll add Youtube links to the end of this episode so you can see their dancing.  Oh, my gosh!

 

Is it okay if I record you for this podcast, Lithuanian Out Loud?  Okay.  It's okay? Good!

 

On today’s episode we’ll do something a little different.  We’ll take something from the Vikipedija homepage and we’ll read it for you.  How much can you understand without reading the text?  We’ll read this for you three times.  Sėkmės! 

 

Titanikas – transatlantinis keleivinis laivas. Šis laivas buvo pastatytas Belfaste, Airijoje ir priklausė „White Star Line“ kompanijai. Tai buvo didžiausias pasaulyje ir labai greitas laivas.
