That must be ...

Sveicinaati!!

It's me again!! :D

I tried to say "that must be your little brother" in LAtvian but I was having a problem with the "must". I remember that you need to add "jaa-" to the verb. So do you say then "Tas jaair tav braaliitis"?
Ini tandatanganku.

Tam jābūt, we never use prefix with ir, besides, if you are wondering, if the kid is someone's brother, you should use laikam (Tas laikam ir tavs mazais brālītis ?)

But it's already a progress that I know why are those very words with those very forms needed if it wants to mean that in English :D
By the way draw your ass to Skype :ohwell: (joking with the style :waytogo: )
