Everything at the school and Riga was really great and I have a fun time. It was more than everything I expected. Thank you, Russian Language Academy BORN so much for everything you’ve done, this entire experience was super! ”

My 1-week course with the Academy was highly rewarding and a great opportunity to solidify my knowledge. Especially if you are interested in something more topical, a combination of a general Russian course and one of the Academy’s specialised courses is ideal. The very friendly and competent teachers will take their time to explain complicated aspects of the language and to train real-life communication skills. Moreover, the small size of learning groups and the option for individual lessons allow you to get support and challenges that are really appropriate for your level. Overall it was a great motivation to keep on learning Russian more intensely in the future.”

Studying in a Russian language program in Riga has many advantages. For example, full immersion is one of the greatest benefits. If you force yourself to only speak Russian, you will find plenty of opportunities to practice in everyday situations. Class gives you opportunities to follow your interests in Russian studies. For instance, I enjoy researching a new word’s etymology. Additionally, it’s rewarding to use that new vocabulary in a conversation or essay.
I love listening to other students’ experiences. A Russian language program is a wonderful way to meet people from around the world too. In-class conversations on topics like ваша семья, свободное время and культура allow you to learn from your classmates while practicing Russian.
