To fully integrate into the local community and avoid any miscommunication, learning Lithuanian is recommended. This can seem a little daunting as it’s not the easiest language to master. There are, however, lots of courses available, as well as online resources dedicated to helping you come to grips with the language.
There is also the free and interactive tool Let’s be Friends, which teaches you to read, listen, understand, speak and write in Lithuanian. The course has been developed to work with a teacher who will start the group off, make virtual appointments, communicates directly with students and checks open-type tasks.
Education is compulsory in Lithuania for children from 7 to 16 years of age.
