Latvia

Sveiki!

Latvia is nestled in the heart of the Baltic region of Northern Europe and is known for its rich history, stunning landscapes, and robust educational system that emphasizes both academic excellence and personal growth.

Language RequirementS

Learning Latvian before exchange is advantageous, but not required.

School

High schools in Latvia are known locally as “vidusskola” and are the centre of teenage life.  In addition to traditional subjects, students enjoy a range of sports, including basketball, and cultural experiences such as music, craft, and drama. 

The school year in Latvia starts in early September and runs through to the end of May or early June, divided into two semesters.

Family

Living with a Latvian host family provides a unique window into the local culture and daily life. Families in Latvia enjoy spending time together. Many families who live in Urban areas also own country cottages for weekend getaways and beachside holidays.  

Meals are a time for gathering and sharing, with traditional Latvian cuisine offering a mix of flavours influenced by the country’s history and geographical location. Food is fresh, locally grown and organic.

Teenagers are expected to help with light household chores and keep their bedrooms tidy. After their studying is done teenagers enjoy cafe outings, movies and parties with friends as well as windsurfing, canoeing and bicycle touring.
