The French Institute in Latvia is the Republic of France’s official language and culture centre with more than 20 years of experience in teaching the French language to the most diverse target audiences.
It is also the only examination centre in Latvia where one can attain internationally recognized diplomas confirming a knowledge of the French language (DFP, DELF-DALF).
We offer general French language courses and activities for in-depth language learning in groups and individually and activities for children, adolescents and adults. Based on the common European framework of reference for languages, the courses are offered throughout the year using three learning paces: non-intensive, semi-intensive and intensive. Activities take place in the French language to help course participants get used to a French environment.
We have local teachers and teachers from France at the French Institute, who have specialized in teaching the French language as a foreign language. They regularly upgrade their knowledge and skills with trainings set up by the French institute and its Latvian network.
Doors to the French culture also open up for you through learning the French language at the French Institute with concerts, exhibitions, mediatheque, francophone get-togethers, story afternoons for children, a scientific cafe, film evenings for cinema lovers – everyone will find something that they like!
