Started learning Spanish a few months ago, and improved some others, so a new update :)

:flag-nl: Dutch (mother tongue)
:flag-uk: English (intermediate level)
:flag-de: German (intermediate level vocabulary, low level grammar, learning it since last year)
:flag-fr: French (medium level, now in my 3th year of learning)
:flag-es: Spanish (low level, started learning in november)
Image Latin (reading only, on a low level)
Image Ancient Greek (Attic version) (reading only, on a low level)
Image Frisian (Can understand and read, but can't speak it myself)

And I know some basics of :

:flag-dk: Danish (know a few words and basic sentences)
Image Norwegian (know a few words and basic sentences)
Image Russian (can read Cyrillic, know a few words and basic sentences)

No Russian? It seems it's still an important language for Lithuania, with Russia as your biggest neighbour. More than French is economically important to LT, je dirais.

You are right, if you have buisness here in Lithuania or looking for a good job, Russian language as English is much more important than mentioned French or even German. Unfortunately, many young people which didn't choose Russian as second foreign language at school now are less compepetive on local labour market in comparsion with those who can speak Russian.

My languages:
:flag-lt: Lithuanian, of course
:flag-uk: English
Image Russian, fully understand Ukrainian, Belarussian and mostly or partly understand all other Slavic languages
Want to improve neighbour Latvian skills to at least I could make conversation

Well I don't see any use learning Russian :roll: Why would I? It was useful 25 years ago but not know. Learning French, German, Spanish (English obviously) is more important. For example, there are not that many translators of these languages in Lithuania. Besides, many young people want to study/work in UK, France, Germany, etc

Well, it's a good thing to learn other languages beside Russian or English, but I don't agree Russian is not important anymore. Russia is still a very big country, and in spite of the economical crisis, there, it's stil a huge market, right at your backdoor. A lot closer than France, Belgium, Spain... anyway. It's not impossible 90% of Lithuanians will never even meet one Spaniard, leave alone a Spaniard who doesn't speak any other language, but most Lithuanians might very well meet with a Russian with only a rudimentary knowledge of any other language you know.
