Why Study Latvian?
Latvian courses are a fun way to satisfy your language requirement, learn more about Latvian heritage, or get acquainted with a special Indo-European language. Our courses are taught by an exceptional faculty, including our visiting Latvian Language Lecturer.
How will this impact my career?
