Mans vārds ir Anna – My name is Anna
Mani sauc Anna – My name is Anna (I am called Anna)
Es esmu Anna – I am Anna
Labdien, mani sauc Anna! Es esmu no Amerikas/Anglijas/Zviedrijas/Vācijas etc. – Hello, my name is Anna! I am from America/England/Sweden/Germany etc.

MUST KNOW! There are two forms of “you” in Latvian Language:
The singular and informal tu (you) is used when addressing a child, a friend, a member of a family or someone you know well.
The plural or polite jūs (you) is used not only for more than one person, but also when addressing strangers or adults who are not close friends.
