About the Lithuanian Language
Lithuanian is a Baltic language, closely related to Latvian, although they are not mutually intelligible. It is spoken by some 3 million native speakers in Lithuania and about 170,000 abroad.
Lithuanian has two main dialects: Aukštaičių (Aukštaitian, Highland Lithuanian) and Žemaičių/Žemaitiu (Samogitian, Lowland Lithuanian). Each has three sub-dialects. Pimsleur’s course teaches the standard Lithuanian, which is based on W. High Lithuanian.
Lithuanian is written using a modified Roman alphabet.

What People Are Saying
“I've taken Rosetta Stone on and off for many years. But never been able to sit down and have an easy conversation with someone in German. This program [Pimsleur] has really helped me learn how to understand German audibly as well as help me flow my words and sentences.”
