Noskupsti mani, es runaju latviski!
Latvian and English are remotely related; they both belong to the Indo-European family of languages. Latvian belongs to the Baltic branch with Lithuanian as its only existant close relative whereas English belongs to the Germanic branch with German, Dutch and Scandinavian languages as its near relatives. Russian is still widely spoken in Latvia today. Here are a few Latvian basics to impress the locals:
|My name is Dave||Mani sauc David|
|One pint of beer, please||Man ludzu, vienu kausu alus|
|I love you||Es tevi milu|
