Hi everybody,

Does anybody know a language school in Brussels (or surroundings) that offers courses to learn Lithuanian? Any other suggestions for learning Lithuanian in Brussels? My level is beginner, as I already took a winter course at Vilnius University this winter.

Any input is greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance!

Best regards, Gijs

Gijs,

How was your winter course in Lithuanian? If you like, please give me some information on the course (how much it costs, etc.).

Ačiū!
Jeremy

Indeed, that is the course I took. I enjoyed the couse a lot, good teacher, friendly department who really try to make your time worthwhile. As always with courses like this, you have to take good care you are in the right level and that you change groups once you feel that you are ready for a higher level. Let me know if here is anything else you would like to know..

regards, Gijs

Gijs,

My grandmother was a Lithuanian speaker, but she died before I was born, so I could not learn from her.

In 2006 I got around Vilnius largely using Russian I discovered I spoke ("Na-prava!") and decided I needed to learn Lithuanian.

I understand a lot of Lithuanian passively but am still laying a foundation in the basics. What I do speak, I speak fairly well.

    Laba diena. Mano vardas Jeremy. Aš nelabai gerai lietuviškai kalbu; truputį suprantu. Aš amerikietis ir kalbu angliškai. Ar angliškai kalbete(=kalbate)?


I am very good with the basics, but the deep vocabulary and grammar awareness of a native speaker is just not there.

Do you know what level would be most appropriate for me initially? It sounds like a great place to start toward my goal of fluent Lithuanian.

I am an American citizen but feel a deep attraction to Lithuanian culture. As a child, I felt a sense of loss for not speaking the language and decided I needed to learn it one day.

Please write me back about getting enrolled at Vilnius University. I would like to go for a summer trip while I am studying here and then go back for long enough to learn Lithuanian thoroughly.

Ačiū ir geros dienos,
Jeremy
