One stage in the acquisition of the Latvian language has come to an end. What was it like?

Four months ago six groups started acquiring the state language in the project “Living in Latvia – Learning the Latvian Language”. At first, it seemed that these four months were a very long period of time but now, at the end of April the project team feels that the time has flown and the first two groups are ready to sit for the Latvian language evaluation examination.  More

We learn the Latvian language with joy!

The learning of the Latvian language is gathering speed: since January the third country nationals have started attending the Latvian language courses and learning the Latvian language in the project “Living in Latvia – learning the Latvian language”. The length of the course is 120 hours but already after a months of starting the course a person who did not know a word in Latvian is able to tell about him/herself, his/her occupation and family, is able to understand that nouns in the Latvian language have endings and tries to use them correctly in the right case: Accusative, Locative and Dative as well as the anxiety about the examination to be passed after two or three months increases.
