Feedback from our students about Russian Language Classes in Riga

Daniele, CANADA: “I was really satisfied with the pace of the Russian language lessons. It’s a great school to learn Russian fast. 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”.

Petr Šimek, Czech Republic: ”I spent 2 weeks at the school and am very happy with my choice. My native Russian teacher was very professional and helpful. As well as the location of the school is excellent, right in the center of Riga. I highly recommend the Russian Language Academy Riga.”
