I really enjoyed my week at Durbe. All the staff were very friendly and approachable - they helped make me feel at home. Everything was explained clearly and thoroughly to me. Before I came to Riga, the communication was very good (by e-mail and phone). I would definetely recommend the course to others, I definetely felt like I learned a lot here.
During the two weeks I attended two different courses. The first (A1+) was a bit easy, but the teacher was active and helpful, so I was satisfied with the course. The next week I asked for a higher level course. I was very satisfied. The teacher was active and communicative, and we laughed a lot, which is important in my opinion. I also learned a lot of new vocabulary and I also think that my speaking abilities got better because we talked a lot in class. I would definetly recommend the course and the teacher to others in future.
"Ich habe meinen Aufenthalt hier sehr genossen! Der Unterricht hat mir geholfen meine Russischkenntnisse stark zu verbessern. Was mir besonders gefallen hat, war, dass wir wirklich viel geredet haben! Das Personal war die ganze Zeit sehr hilfsbereit, Vielen Dank!"
I had an absolutely wonderful time with my eight-week intensive Russian language course. The entire staff was very accomodating and friendly. I especially appreciate assistance with my documents for graduate school. Vita and Žanna are both outstanding teachers to whom I am greatly indebted with a much better level of fluency than I would have initially expected. I really appreciate the way they both coordinated their lessons for a seamless transition from morning to afternoon. This made an otherwise strenuous language course feel enjoyable and relaxed.
I would strongly recommend this course! There was an excellent effort to ensure the right level of instruction and right mix of groups. The teacher was very able to maintain a constant progress and very good atmosphere. Thank you very much!
My whole experience in Latvia, including classes, homestay, travels around Riga was very memorable and beneficial for me. The quality of service received from the school was admirable and very professional. Specifically I would like to point out our instructor, who was always on point with her class topics, exams, quizzes etc. The rest of the staff was nice and helpfull too, I would like to express my gratitude to the school's personell for the outstanding servise and their hard work improving my language capabilities.
I was very pleased with my stay in Riga and with my One to one (individual) course at Russian Language School Durbe. It was my first time in Riga and therefore having all lessons in the afternoon suited me well, since it allowed me to explore your interesting city and its surrounding in the mornings.
I am very pleased with my individual lessons and happy to have had such a great teacher, who explained grammar very well and who was innovative during class. I find Russian language very complecated, but thanks to a great teacher Olga I know I will go on studying iRussian by myself with taking more classes in the future.
