Lithuanian is a notoriously difficult language to learn, but that didn't stop the staff of the US Embassy in Vilnius from making heroic attempts at conquering a collection of tough Lithuanian tongue-twisters.

Many know the classic “geri vyrai geroj girioj gerą girą gėrė“ (good men drank good gira in the good forest), but they also got some tougher tongue-twisters that will even stump some Lithuanians, like “šešios žasys su šešiais žąsyčiais” (six geese with six goslings).

Yes, perhaps their attempts are funny. But can you say them all correctly?
