Mano Tavo Jo Jos - Hi there, I’m Jack and I’m Raminta and welcome back to Lithuanian Out Loud where we offer the world the Lithuanian language.
The Lithuanian national flag is the tricolor of yellow, green and red. The yellow represents the golden fields of Lithuanian grain, the green represents the green countryside of Lithuania and red represents the blood that has been shed on Lithuanian soil.

Labas, Raminta and Jack. My name is Sergiu (Serdzas in Lithuanian :) ), and i am adding myself to the nationalities\' encyclopedia who\'s listening and learning your Lithuanian Out Loud podcasts. I took the liberty and downloaded all your episodes, i hope that is ok with you. I am of Romanian nationality, 24 of age, and i\'m in my final year in University. You probably ask yourself what\'s the reason behind my Lithuanian language learning process, and here it is: I have received a two-year Master course for studying abroad, and i chose, of course, you guessed it, Lietuva ! From September of 2009, i will be living and studying in Kaunas, at the LZUU University. Till then, i have to be able to understand and handle conversation in lietuviskai. At first, I found it challenging, but step-by-step, and with your very helpful lessons, things in Lithuanian are getting clearer every day :). You are being extremely helpful to me, because as you say it, this is the only Lithuanian language podcast series, and I find it very approachable, even for a complete novice like me. I am currently at the 30\'th lesson, and going forward with pleasure. So, add Romania too on the list. :) Anciously awaiting for new episodes, Serdzas. Viso Gero !
