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.

Comments about Lithuanian Phase 1, Unit 06-10:
As I said in my review of Units 1-5, you can't beat this program for planting stuff firmly into your long-term memory. I first went through the program three years ago, and when I picked it up again, most of the material was still available in my brain. Very helpful for learning the correct pronunciation.
However, it is frustrating not to be able to go further. This is only a bare beginning. Also, there is no opportunity for review if you're a little rusty. A review unit, going over everything you learned, would make this program better. Also, while there are word lists, they do not correspond to the units and do not contain all the words learned. A comprehensive word list would make this program better.
I used the program because we had a Lithuanian exchange student whom we visited in her own country, and I wanted to be able to communicate. The Pimsleur DID help, but I wouldn't have been able to do much beyond "Hello, goodbye, would you like some coffee" if I hadn't taken with me a copy of Dambriunas's "Beginner's Lithuanian." (hard to find, and really the only comprehensive Lithuanian grammar out there, as far as I can tell).
