Great school to learn Russian!

I absolutely recommend Russian Language Academy BORN, because it’s just a great school! With all the experience you get you have a great assessment, you have an approachable administration, really almost feels like family here. Riga is a very beautiful city, it’s still Russian speaking, but offers the safe environment in the EU.
The coolest part for me was teaching, because the teachers were very motivated. It’s great that in class they only speak Russian, which really fosters your learning progress.

Accelerated learning with expert guidance

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Russian Language Academy BORN!  During my three week stay I learned more than I had previously learned during many months of self-study. My Russian language teacher has decades of professional experience and thus very quickly identified my strengths and weaknesses. She tailored the lessons accordingly and we worked intensely on improving my weak spots.
The administrative staff is always friendly and ahead of things.
Although my main focus was on learning the Russian language, I also enjoyed the beautiful architecture and rich culture of Riga.
It was my second stay in the school and many more will follow!

I'm extremely thankful!

I had wonderful 4 weeks in Riga! I’m extremely thankful to the school, the teachers and my Russian host mother for how they looked after me, prepared Russian language lessons based on my interests. They all pushed me me forward on my journey with русский язык. Look forward to coming back for more Russian language practice!
