The Easiest and Fastest Way to Learn Lithuanian

Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what’s going on in the world around you, learning Lithuanian will expand your horizons and immeasurably enrich your life.

The best part is that it doesn’t have to be difficult or take years to master. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and we get you speaking right from the first day. Pimsleur courses use a scientifically-proven method that puts you in control of your learning. If you’ve tried other language learning methods but found they simply didn’t stick, then you owe it to yourself to give Pimsleur a try.

Why Pimsleur?
- Quick + Easy – Only 30 minutes a day.
- Portable + Flexible – Core lessons can be done anytime, anywhere, and easily fit into your busy life.
- Proven Method – Works when other methods fail.
- Self-Paced – Go fast or go slow – it’s up to you.
- Based in Science – Developed using proven research on memory and learning.
- Cost-effective – Less expensive than classes or immersion, and features all native speakers.
- Genius – Triggers your brain’s natural aptitude to learn.
- Works for everyone – Recommended for ages 13 and above.

What’s Included?
- 10, 30-minute audio lessons
- reading instruction to provide you with an introduction to reading Lithuanian designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent
- In total, 5 hours of audio, all featuring native speakers
- a Reading Booklet and a User’s Guide

What You’ll Learn
In these 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

Reading instruction begins in Lesson 2 and provides you with an introduction to reading Lithuanian. These lessons are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

The Pimsleur Method
We make no secret of what makes this powerful method work so well. Paul Pimsleur spent his career researching and perfecting the precise elements anyone can use to learn a language quickly and easily. Here are a few of his “secrets”:

The Principle of Anticipation
In the nanosecond between a cue and your response, your brain has to work to come up with the right word. Having to do this boosts retention, and cements the word in your mind.

Core Vocabulary
Words, phrases, and sentences are selected for their usefulness in everyday conversation. We don’t overwhelm you with too much, but steadily increase your ability with every lesson.

Graduated Interval Recall
Reminders of new words and structures come up at the exact interval for maximum retention and storage into your long-term memory.

Organic Learning
You work on multiple aspects of the language simultaneously. We integrate grammar, vocabulary, rhythm, melody, and intonation into every lesson, which allows you to experience the language as a living, expressive form of human culture.

Learning in Context
Research has shown that learning new words in context dramatically accelerates your ability to remember. Every scene in every Pimsleur lesson is set inside a conversation between two people. There are no drills, and no memorization necessary for success.

Active Participation
The Pimsleur Method + active learner participation = success. This method works with every language and every learner who follows it. You gain the power to recall and use what you know, and to add new words easily, exactly as you do in English.

The Lithuanian Language
Lithuanian is spoken by some 3 million native speakers in Lithuania and about 170,000 abroad. There are two main dialects: Aukštaiciu (Highland Lithuanian) and Žemaiciu / Žemaitiu (Lowland Lithuanian). Pimsleur's Lithuanian teaches the standard dialect, based on West High Lithuanian.

Tech Talk
- CDs are formatted for playing in all CD players, including car players, and users can copy files for use in iTunes or Windows Media Player.

I started dating a girl from Lithuania while she was in the US for the summer. I wanted to show off by learning some of her language. I had a half hour commute to work so the lessons fit into that time nicely. The first lesson kicked my butt. I had to repeat it 4-5 times before I got 90% of the review words right. Just talk out loud while driving alone and repeat everything over and over again. It got better with the other lessons and after two weeks I walked up to her and asked her in Lithuanian how she was doing. I freaked her out because I had no accent. I keep waiting for advanced lessons to be released. We've been married for 8 years and the most words I've learned was from this first set. It's really just a hundred words or so. Just enough to survive. I want to speak the language. Keep making more.

I enjoyed Pimsleur's Czech Phase 1 (Lessons 1-30) so much that when I learned I would be moving to Lithuania I knew I had to try Lithuanian Phase 1. And I have enjoyed those 10 lessons. But here's my complaint, there are only 10 lessons. Please produce another 20 or more Lithuanian lessons.

Comments about Lithuanian Phase 1, Units 1-10:

What is good is the pace of the lessons. What is bad is that I cannot load it into my walkman; so I must sit at my desk computer to use the program. I really don't like this.

    I not only use this system on my computer but I also have it on my iPod so I can practice as I am doing chores around home. I find the method of breaking the words into syllables very effective.

    Great product!

    Service and delivery comments:

    This is a great learning tool. It has been fun and easy to learn. Even though you may have to replay a lesson, you finally understand the pronunciation of the words and phrases. I like the encouragement of gaining the 80% proficiency before moving onto the next lesson. I am so impressed with the Lithuanian program. I have the ability and confidence to learn this new language. Thank you for putting together this language set.
