Living in Latvia – Learning Latvian (4rd stage)

Living in Latvia – Learning Latvian (4rd stage)

01/01/2022 - 30/09/2022

The project “Living in Latvia – Learning Latvian (4rd stage)” is already the fourth project in which the Education Development Centre (IAC) offers third country nationals the opportunity to learn Latvian for 120 hours, as the demand for Latvian language courses is high. It is a project in the field of integration, which is aimed at ensuring the acquisition of the Latvian language for the target group, education and the needs of the labor market.

During the 9 months of the project, the EDC will offer 120 hours of intensive Latvian language courses at various language levels to 150 third country nationals in a total of 13 remote groups.

The general objective of the project is to promote the integration of persons who are third country nationals* and legally residing in the territory of Latvia into society, the education system and the labor market, as well as to improve the availability of services to the target group.



When starting the project, we faced a high demand for courses, so in January and February we recruited and launched seven (7) remote Latvian language groups. Thus, 113 third-country nationals started their training in groups of different levels: three A1 groups, two A2 groups, two B1 groups and one B2 group. We wish you success and patience for three months, as the training for these groups will end in late April – early May.

We are planning to recruit the next groups in April. If you want to learn Latvian in May – July, please contact the Education Development Centre:
