The University of Latvia, in conjunction with the Latvian Ministry of Education and the Latvian Language Agency has commenced enrolment for the 2021 Summer School of Latvian Language and Culture for youth living outside Latvia.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic which has placed restrictions on travel and as it is difficult to predict the situation this summer, the decision was made to run the Summer School remotely using MS Teams.
Participants must be between 17 and 35 years old. The Summer School will be held from 14th to 27th July. Summer School student tuition will be free of charge. Groups will have up to 10 participants.
We are planning to have three groups: for those without prior knowledge of Latvian, those with minimal knowledge and for those with good Latvian language skills.
To enrol complete the enrolment form and write a motivation letter. Enrolment is open until 1 June 2021.

One thought on “Summer School of Latvian Language & Culture to be held online”
Wondering if this could be offered to older participants? I’m 61 and my mother, born in Riga in ’28 but immigrated to the US in ’49, recently passed. I never learned the language as a child, but I’m interested now. Thanks
