After spending 5 weeks in Latvia’s capital, it’s time to go back home! Goodbye, Riga – I am going to miss you!
1. Language course & internship
Looking back at my internship, I am more than grateful that I was given the opportunity not only to write for this blog but also to gather experience as a teacher. Liden & Denz in Riga trusted me with two amazing students from Norway, and I tried my best to pass the knowledge to them. This is a huge step in my career, and I am happy to have had a task like this one this early in my career. Besides that, the language course was more than helpful and informative. It has helped me gain some confidence whilst speaking Russian. As a Russian language graduate, being constantly surrounded by the language was one of my main goals. My stay in Riga enabled me exactly that.
2. People & the city
As I got to know Riga, my love only grew! The beautiful old town filled with little allies and cute shops really made me feel like every day was a new experience. Exploring its parks and other green surfaces, as well as being able to drive up to the sea whenever I wanted really made me fall in love with Riga. Among other things, the people I met during my stay are the ones that really made these 5 weeks special. I am thankful for every single one of them and hope to meet them again in the future.
And for all of you reading my posts for the past 5 weeks – thank you! You also made this experience very special. Now it’s time to say goodbye to Riga and head back to Vienna!
