Learning Russian in a mini group is an excellent way to combine the Standard or Intensive Russian language lessons with 5 to 10 extra lessons per week at a Mini Group class. The Mini Group class is a small class of a maximum of 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. We advise studying Russian in a small group for those who are short of time and enjoy an intensive study process.
The Standard Russian course with 20 Russian language lessons per week covers all aspects of the language and aims to develop students’ communicative efficiency. 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 language practice.
The Intensive Russian course with 25 Russian language 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 an extra 5 lessons per week on two afternoons. Get ready not only to master situational language and discussions through role-play, but also the use of social language. For this reason, you will greatly develop and improve all the skills necessary for confident communication.

Feedback from our students about their experience learning Russian
Emilie F. Dalisda, GERMANY: “I highly enjoyed my experience studying Russian 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.”
