People from all over the world, including distant countries, such as Japan, United States, are gathering together this summer to say LABAS to each other and to learn Lithuanian – one of the oldest and most praised languages in the world.

The language and culture courseswhich consists of language classes and includes games and songs, workshops, sightseeing tours and much more, are gaining huge interest each year and the numbers of international students, lecturers and researchers applying for Lithuanian state funded scholarships (that fully cover the courses) are increasing. 

This year’s Lithuanian language and culture courses are organized by five universities in three Lithuanian cities – Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipeda.
