George Leech, UK:"The school is excellent in every way. It is a very professional set up and, most importantly, the teachers are dedicated to your progress, explain difficult aspects of the language clearly and care about your progress".
Durbe Russian Language Academy has more than 20 years experience in the international language tourism. Durbe RLA was the first private language school in Latvia accredited by the Ministry of Education and Science of Latvia. We are proud to be accredited members of EAQUALS - an international association of institutions involved in the language education. Eaquals accreditation allows us to be up-to-date with the latest field trends and guarantees the highest possible quality of the studies. At an Eaquals-accredited centre, you can be sure that every aspect of your language learning experience will meet your highest expectations. In 2015 our efforts in providing the high-quality services were again confirmed by the Eaquals reaccreditation. This independent inspection thoroughly checked all our services and awarded us with the 2nd accreditation - which now lasts until the year 2019! We also received points of excellence in the following categories: Learning Environment, Quality Assurance, Client Services and External Communications. Please read detailed information about Eaquals General Charters for accredited members.
