Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Be prepared, learn the alphabet beforehand, listen to website podcasts, learn the cases and the conjugation of the commonest verbs!
Other comments:
I would have appreciated it if there were more students at my level (beginner). You state on the internet site that no prior knowledge is necessary, but I would not have completed the course if I hadn't studied for three months in advance, as, luckily, I had done.

Riga is a great city, and since the school is centrally located, you can go out after class to discover Riga or relax by the channel.

Since I was in Riga in January, the social program was limited, but the school tried to make a suggestion for almost every day - great! The teachers ware very dedicated ... It was just awesome! I organised my accommodation myself.
