Discover one of Europe’s hidden gems! Our Russian courses in Riga will introduce you to a city of exquisite architecture, amazing nightlife and friendly Russian speakers! Latvia’s elegant capital somehow remains unspoilt and affordable, despite its many charms. What’s more, after 250 years of Russian rule, Latvia is now part of the European Union, so many student won’t need a visa to learn Russian in Riga!
Riga seamlessly combines old and new, with the beautiful Old Town hiding cosmopolitan restaurants, stylish bars and pulsating nightclubs. Recover from the night before in one of the many tranquil parks, or sip a coffee by the banks of the sparkling Daugava River. Outside Riga, Latvia becomes a country of lush forests, traditional villages and stunning Baltic beaches, all just waiting to be explored.
Our school’s Russian courses in Riga take place in the very centre of the city, only separated from the picturesque old town by a park. The school itself has spacious classrooms, Internet-enabled computers, a wireless Internet connection, student lounge and even an inner courtyard where you can unwind after your Russian lessons.
Our school offers Russian tuition in same-level groups, on an individual basis and even with a combination of both group and Private Russian Lessons. Group-based Russian courses give you the chance to meet and interact with your fellow students, so you can practice your language skills with your peers.
Private Russian Lessons, on the other hand, allow you to study whichever topics you want, at your own pace. You’ll make rapid progress, benefiting from the undivided attention of our school’s enthusiastic, experienced teachers.
Get all the language practice you could wish for and gain a unique insight into Latvian culture – live with a local host family! Our school takes great care when selecting host families, choosing only the most welcoming people to look after students. If you require a particularly high standard of accommodation, the ‘host family plus’ option will provide this.
Our school’s activity program gives you the chance to make new friends as you explore Riga! Join other students enjoying activities like city tours, movie nights, meals out in local restaurants, museum trips and Russian dancing.
One-way and two-way transfers from Riga International Airport are available through our school. Please be aware, however, that transfers cost extra.
