Feedback from our students about their experience learning Russian in Riga

Daniele, CANADA: “I was really satisfied with the pace of the Russian language lessons. It was intensive enough to allow myself to progress in one week. I really like the fact that during intensive Russian language classes we spoke Russian only. For this reason, my experience was even more interesting and useful”.
