Great school to learn Russian!

10.06.2024

I absolutely recommend Russian Language Academy BORN, because it’s just a great school! With all the experience you get you have a great assessment, you have an approachable administration, really almost feels like family here. Riga is a very beautiful city, it’s still Russian speaking, but offers the safe environment in the EU.
The coolest part for me was teaching, because the teachers were very motivated. It’s great that in class they only speak Russian, which really fosters your learning progress.

Accelerated learning with expert guidance

07.03.2024

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Russian Language Academy BORN!  During my three week stay I learned more than I had previously learned during many months of self-study. My Russian language teacher has decades of professional experience and thus very quickly identified my strengths and weaknesses. She tailored the lessons accordingly and we worked intensely on improving my weak spots.
The administrative staff is always friendly and ahead of things.
Although my main focus was on learning the Russian language, I also enjoyed the beautiful architecture and rich culture of Riga.
It was my second stay in the school and many more will follow!

I had wonderful 4 weeks in Riga! I’m extremely thankful to the school, the teachers and my Russian host mother for how they looked after me, prepared Russian language lessons based on my interests. They all pushed me me forward on my journey with русский язык. Look forward to coming back for more Russian language practice!

Now I'm confident at speaking Russian!

06.10.2023

I took my Russian language class at level A1 and I learned a lot! We almost exclusively spoke in Russian and that really speed up the learning progress. I understand spoken Russian much better now and also feel more confident at speaking Russian myself.

In two weeks I spent in Riga we went over all the basics of Russian grammar. My teacher Viktoria is excellent at explaining even difficult grammatical topics. She is patient and wont’ stop to explain until you understand everything. Thank you so much!

Teachers were amazing

“I really enjoyed my 4-week stay in Riga at Russian Language Academy BORN and my teachers. The teachers were amazing in helping me relearn what I had forgotten and did a wonderful job at explaining everything. I liked discussions, flexibility, and open dialogue in Russian helped me to remember forgotten words, and the books were always interesting and engaging. The teacher did a great job at explaining the meaning of words in Russian without having to use English. I really liked the fact that I could be flexible with switching levels.”

Highly recommended

I highly recommend the Russian Language Academy BORN. I started my Russian from scratch this summer, and my instructors were professional, effective, and encouraging. This was my first time in Riga, and the team at Russian Language Academy BORN was extremely communicative and accommodating.

I also highly recommend doing a homestay… Read more about Natasha’s experience here.
