“would definitely do it again”

"Summer course was an amazing experience and a great start of the semester. We had classes every morning and in the afternoon we watched a Lithuanian movie or we enjoyed the beach. I had great classmates who were always willing to have fun. Lithuanian is very difficult, but we had two great tutors who helped us with our homework every day. The teachers were also very nice and the lessons were comfortable to follow. On Saturdays we went on field trips and you will see many nice places. Klaipeda is a great place to stay and you can reach the city centre and the beach in a few minutes. I had a great time and would definitly do it again!"
