Russian Language Immersion in the European Union

“Learn Russian in the European Union” offers a Russian language immersion program in the European Union.

“Learn Russian in the EU” takes advantage of two key factors:

  • the unique ethnic and cultural background of the Daugavpils region,
  • Daugavpils University and Training Center LatInSoft’s excellence in the field of Russian language teaching.

Unique Location

Daugavpils is a multinational city, home to 96, 000 people.

  • It’s the second largest city in Latvia;
  • Nearly everyone speaks standard modern Russian as their native or primary language; and
  • Russian is the language of everyday communication.

Daugavpils is a unique community as the most Russian city in Latvia and in the European Union. It’s the perfect place for intensive Russian communication training.
