The most positive aspect of the teaching method in Riga I have noticed is the opportunities to practice new concepts in class with a teacher present. It is very beneficial to learn new grammar/vocabulary and immediately be able to practice using it. I like this way of teaching Russian very much!
I liked learning the Russian step by step with noticeable progress each day. I also liked that we practiced several different things each lesson. Thank you very much for everything! I had a great time!
I loved my stay! I started from the very beginning and loved every minute of studies with both two teachers that I had. At the beginning I struggled with the alphabet and now I’m able to have simple, but full-time conversations in Russian — I think it’s great!
I would like to highlight the quality of the content and the fact that these classes provide you with a great opportunity to speak Russian. The RLA Durbe’s approach to teaching is both peculiar and meaningful. All the teachers resort to the communicative method which is the best way to obtain an active knowledge of the language. Certainly, I definitely recommend it!
The school provided me with an excellent Russian learning program and an unforgettable experience in Riga. My gap in the Russian language improved immensely with the help of the staff and teachers. All teachers sincerely care about their students’ progress as well as do their best to accommodate your abilities. And the organization of the school as well as the preparation of faculty impressed me greatly.
The teachers at RLA Durbe are extremely experienced, lessons are well thought out. The school is great, the staff are helpful & knowledgeable. The Shared Flat was great as well — everything worked, the Internet was fast and TV had Russian programs. Course itself was amazing & I can’t wait to come back sometime in 2019.
