The atmosphere and the welcoming attitude was very uplifting. The teacher was very professional.
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.

The classes were great and I learned a lot. All the people were very friendly and explained everything to me.
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.

Lessons are professional and serious; there is sufficient attention for the needs of the students.
I suggest to have more contact about the social program before the start of the lessons. It's then possible to choose from many possibilities.
