Hi there, I’m Jack and I’m Raminta and welcome back to Lithuanian Out Loud where we offer the world the Lithuanian language. Today we’re in the month of October which in Lithuanian is spalis.
According to Radio Vilnius: News & Current Affairs, sales of bicycles are up in Lithuania. There are government efforts towards creating bicycle lanes in cities. However, bicycles are not so ingrained in the culture so as to make bike riding safe. Cars still rule the roads. The European Union gave Lithuania funds for creating a bicycle safe infrastructure but the program was stopped and 10 million litas will be returned. Vilnius city officials say they’ll implement the program eventually in their own time but there are no plans to put this into motion.
Today we’ll go over the Lithuanian verb daryti – to do, to make, to open, to close. Here are daryti and nedaryti conjugated in the present tense.
