Course Overview

Latvians form the largest group of Eastern Europeans in Guernsey. Our Beginner classes will help you learn basic phrases as well as grammar, speaking, listening, reading and writing skills to help you to communicate with Latvian people in Guernsey or if you visit Latvia.

We offer three levels for Latvian learners: Beginners, Elementary and Intermediate, each of which will cover grammar, speaking, listening, reading and writing skills at the appropriate level.

If you can only attend a certain day, contact us and we will see what other options we can give you.
