Lithuanian (lietuvių kalba)is one of the two surviving Baltic languages (the other one is Latvian) which form a special subgroup within the Indo-European languages. There are about 2.9 million native Lithuanian speakers in Lithuania and about 200,000 abroad. As a Baltic language, Lithuanian is closely related to neighbouring Latvian and more distantly to Slavic, Germanic and other Indo-European languages. It is written in a Latin alphabet.
Among Indo-European languages, Lithuanian is conservative in some aspects of its grammar and phonology, retaining archaic features otherwise found only in ancient languages such as Sanskrit.
How Long Does It Take to Master Lithuanian?
In order to learn the communication phrases used by tourists in daily situations a couple days in the language course will suffice. However, if you want to master written and spoken Lithuanian more properly, you should allow one to three years. In order to achieve an academic level, you will need at least five to seven years.
Is It Possible to Master It Faster?
With time and motivation you can master Lithuanian faster. The more time you dedicate to learning the language, the faster you will achieve the result. Daily communication in Lithuanian will be a great advantage. And do not forget the media (radio and television), press, cultural events, music, and films in Lithuanian.
Does Your Mother-Tongue Affect Your Mastery of Lithuanian?
If you speak Latvian or it is your mother-tongue, you will learn Lithuanian easier and faster. People proficient in Slavic and Germanic languages will see similarities with the Lithuanian grammar system and words loaned from these languages. The Baltic languages are more closely related to Slavic, Germanic, and Indo-Iranian (in that order) than to the other branches of the family.
Some important tips in order to master Lithuanian faster:
- Learn each new word in the context it is used in.
- Repeat what you have learned often because repetition is the mother of learning;
- Use both real and virtual Lithuanian language domain;
- Use the media (TV, radio, music, literature, social media platforms) in Lithuanian;
- Read fiction in Lithuanian, start with easy Lithuanian;
- Let yourself make mistakes, use the language, jump in the Lithuanian language river for a swim! You can do it!
