    First notebook entry: Introducing myself

    Laba Diena,
    Mano vardas Andrea. Aš gyvenu Amerikoj. Aš gyvenu su savo mama ir sese. Aš turiu katę ir šunį. Aš noriu atvykti į Lietuvą.

    Iki.

    Very good in general!

    These are explanations:

    1) we use "mano" when we talk about these persons/things , like introduction or what they say and you're not a part of this fact:

    "My mom says.." = "Mano mama sako.."

    "My dad is from America" = "Mano tėtis yra iš Amerikos"

    "Who's that person in my garden? = "Kas tas žmogus mano sode?"

    But when you want to emphasize the dependence of these people/things on yourself you say 'savo'. It's mostly so, when the question is "with whom?":

    "Yesterday I went for the walk with my family" = "Aš vakar buvau pasivaikščioti su savo šeima"

    Or "what?"

    "Take your dog out of here!" = "Pasiimk savo šunį iš čia!"

    "I lost my passport!" = "Aš pamečiau savo pasą!"

    ----------

    2) šuns - whose? / šunį - what (do I have)?

    ----------

    3) Eiti - is just 'to go' somewhere not far like shop, school, concert.

    Atvykti/atvažiuoti - is to go somewhere further. Like to other country or city. But if you want to say 'to visit', you have to say 'aplankyti'.

    I know it's super difficult and I'm not good at explaining :D but good luck!
