The 3 Latvians that met in New York City were:
- My student Ina,
- Her cousin Ieva from Latvia
My student Ina invited her cousin Ieva to New York City to have some fun and quality time. Since she had a place big enough for 4 people at the Hilton Midtown hotel, she asked me if I wanted to join them. I agreed, and it turned out to be a wonderful adventure for the three of us. It all happened last week. In the video that I’ve embedded here, I am showing the highlights of our time together as well as teaching some Latvian words and sentences to those who are learning Latvian.
This time, I actually included the vocabulary within the post.
