The French Institute in Latvia provides French language courses at various levels from beginners to the skilled language user level. One can learn general French language through three different types of courses: non-intensive, semi-intensive and intensive courses. Alongside general French language, it is possible to study in special courses, in a group or individually. All of the courses take place in accordance with the European common guidelines for learning languages. Activities are led by very experienced and skilful lecturers, and participants with a similar knowledge of the language learn together in groups.
A test on the level of language knowledge is required for enrolment in courses at all levels, except beginners and those course participants, who have already studied previously at the French Institute. It is a written test online or in presence, the latter followed by discussions. The test is free.
At the conclusion of the course, participants take a test, which provides the opportunity to move up to the next language learning level.
Activities take place at the French Institute (Elizabetes iela 59) or at the premises rented by the French Institute in the center of Riga. From September 2017 we offer French classes also in Jurmala, high school of Pumpuri, Kronvalda 8.
