Mini Group course is an excellent combination of our Standard or Intensive with 5 to 10 extra lessons per week in a Mini Group class. The Mini Group is a class of maximum 5 students where you benefit from more individual attention from your teacher. During this course, you will improve your fluency in the Russian language quickly and effectively in the shortest possible time.
Standard Russian course with 20 lessons per week covers all aspects of the language and aims to develop students’ communicative efficiency in the shortest possible time. In fact you will acquire all 4 language skills: reading, writing, speaking, listening and the use of grammar. Teachers use reading or listening to stimulate discussion and writing to consolidate the language practice.
The Intensive course with 25 lessons per week is designed for the motivated student who wishes to maximize the time spent in Latvia as effectively as possible. In addition to Standard Russian with 20 lessons per week, students will have extra 5 lessons per week on two afternoons.

Our students about their experience
Emilie F. Dalisda, GERMANY: “I highly enjoyed my experiences at RLA Durbe. The teachers were really helpful and challenging at the same time. They adapted to our level of knowledge, therefore I could easily improve it. Due to small classes and the fact that we only spoke Russian, the classes were very helpful – we improved all skills with a variety of materials. I also enjoyed the atmosphere during and in between – I received exactly what I wanted from the course.”
