Return to Lithuanian

Well, it's been three months, figure it's time for an update.  Just joking.  :)  I've been studying my Lithuanian, which I mentioned adding to my language list a couple of posts down.  I'm going over the basics, and would like to start trying to read newspaper articles and other texts right away.  
Lithuanian is supposed to be a pretty difficult language, and even though it's not in the same family, I wonder if it's considered harder, easier, or about the same as Polish.   They're both Indo-European, but Lithuanian is Baltic while Polish is Slavic.  These things really mean nothing to me in the long run.  I just take the language as it comes.
So anyway, Lithuanian is the "Language du Jour" and I've got two items to work with: Teach Yourself Lithuanian + the book you see in the pic below.  Look how thick it is and it's only a beginners.
 Pringle with my study materials.


I hope the new year has been good so far with a fresh inspiration to reach those language-learning goals. My only language resolution is to dedicate more time to practice in all areas: listening, writing, reading and speaking. I seem to have hit a huge slump in my language studies, and I want this year to be the start of a turnaround.
