Lithuanian language courses for foreigners

/back.pngback

One of the major obstacles that the new arrivals encounter is not being able to speak the language. It is difficult to learn the Lithuanian language, however, it is worth learning it if one wants to stay in Lithuania for a longer time. Several institutions organise courses in the Lithuanian language, and the majority of them are located in Vilnius.

Where to learn Lithuanian?

One can get initial knowledge of the Lithuanian language while learning on the Internet, for example, on the recently created website Let’s be Friends. This is a free and interactive tool, which will help one to learn to read, understand and listen, speak and write in Lithuanian. The course consists of 24 lessons; a week is devoted to one lesson. The entire course consists of 12 different topics.

Also, one can learn the Lithuanian language on the websites loescen.com osurfacelanguages.com.

The exam in the Lithuanian language and the fundamentals of the Constitutions for those who want to obtain a permanent residence permit in Lithuania

The individuals who have lived in Lithuania for 5 years and were holders of a temporary residence permit during that period, when applying for a permanent residence permit must submit documents about passing an exam in the Lithuanian language and the fundamentals of the Constitution together with other documents.

These examinations are organised by the National Examination Centre in Lithuania. A list of the schools where these examinations will be held, as well as the timetable for the coming year, is publicised in December of each year. Prior to registering or during the registration an examination fee must be paid. (The fee for the exam in the fundamentals of the Constitution is 2, 90 Euros; the fee for the examination in the State language is 11, 40 – 19 Euros). Registration for the examinations is performed at schools where the examinations are held.

Language and Culture Institute LINGUA LITUANICA prepares the course devoted to preparing for the examination in the fundamentals of the Constitution.
