In today’s episode Jack will mention Grūto Parkas near the Lithuanian city of Druskininkai. By mentioning this controversial park, Jack and I are not commenting on the right or wrong of the park’s existence. Some people like the park, some people hate it, some people don’t care. We’re simply saying the park is of interest for some tourists. Of course millions of people died savagely at the hands of monsters like Lenin and Stalin and no mass murderers should receive a place of honor in any nation.
būti verb meaning, “to be"
Lithuanian doesn’t use the article, such as “a” or “the.” We don’t say, “the book,” or “a book,” we simply say, “book.”
Hey Jack and Rominta, Lesson 24 is as far as I got till now, and I am proud to be able to know at least some basic words. You can not imagine how much of a help your podcast is, thanks a lot! :) I m starting to work as a volunteer in Vilnius in August, at an organisation called "Paramos Vaikams Centras" - but I have no idea how to pronounce the name! Maybe you could help me out by telling me where the stresses in the indivual words are? (If you could reply in an email, that would be awesome.) Greetings from Germany, Magdalena
