I really like the type of teaching here in Durbe since it is very interactive, students and teachers have an ongoing dialogue. I chose Riga because I heard that it is a beautiful city and because it is a much safer environment than Russia. My impression of the city is wonderful: I really love its architecture, the old buildings, the history, and every part is different and you get different feelings in each part of the town.
I took Standard Russian course and it was well structured and I learned a lot! I particularly enjoyed staying with my Russian host family!
