BLS Adult Classes have brought tremendous joy into my life this past year. While I was born in Lithuania, my family left for America when I was two, so I never learned or practiced the language. (...) When I moved to Boston as a mid-twenties adult, I was delighted to discover a community of Lithuanians existed here. Moreover, learning and practicing Lithuanian with other adults has been a great way to learn. I feel encouraged by my progress in just a single year. The course pacing is fair and Saturday school is easy to incorporate into my working schedule. It has been tough, yet very rewarding to start with the basics and slowly learn and gain confidence with my mother tongue. It has nourished my soul and brought joy to my extended family. I look forward to future years here to continue to build essential skills. (...) Thank you for a great year!
