Short course of English – for every traveler

Although 360 million people may call English their mother tongue, which places it in the third place in the world after Chinese and Hindi, it may be proud of having the largest number of speakers. It is because in the course of time English has become the most widely used language of communication in the world among people, for whom it is not their mother tongue.

About 2/3 of Europeans may communicate in English at least on a basic level and English is mastered as the first foreign language almost in all European countries. In other words, when you are abroad, knowledge of English will certainly come in handy.

The “Traveler’s first aid kit” is intended for complete beginners, as well as people with preliminary knowledge, who feel insufficiently confident to use their vocabulary in practice.

During the course, you will learn everything, what you need during your travel – most frequently used words and phrases according to different everyday situations, which tourists frequently face:

  • Greeting and acquaintance;
  • Ordering meals and drinks in a restaurant, café, bar;
  • Booking of a hotel room;
  • Shopping in a shop, in the market;
  • Getting correct directions, etc.

We offer different practical tasks and communication games, that will let you feel comfortable into different everyday situations. We will also discuss most frequent mistakes and provide advice how to react in different cicumstances. During the course, you will be able to improve your speaking and listening skills, as well as writing and reading skills.

The studies will be organized on working days in rooms of “Hieroglifs International” Language School in morning and evening groups up to 7 people. Experienced language teachers will teach the courses.

The “Traveller’s first aid kit” will provide you an excellent opportunity to actively use, polish up and not to forget, as well as supplement your previously accumulated knowledge. The course will also improve and enrich your vocabulary of English words and phrases.

Language course reviews

English language courses – recommended by Edīte Timšāne (Latvia)

”I like the courses very much, the style of teaching, free atmosphere. We are talking a lot what is very important for me” .

Latvian language courses – recommended by Alessandro Marini, Business developer (Italy)

“I chose Hieroglifs school for learning Latvian because – for theirselves declaration – it was not only language to be learned.. and it was absolutely true. The teacher Valters – see in a vintage photo – is a pure Latvian who can involve you in culture and Latvian mind. During the lessons he gives you a lot helpful tips to learning better and to fix subjects in mind, as well as some material for studying at home. The whole class was superb, all of was were in the right attitude so the efficiency was high, and the Hieroglifs staff always ready to make you feel comfortable! Absolutely suggested”.

Latvian language courses – recommended by Peter Hutson (USA)

“I took my first Latvian language course through Hieroglifs Ltd. It was both an enjoyable and rewarding experience and it gave me a good foundation from which to continue my studies. I learned a lot in a very short period of time. The instructor was enthusiastic, friendly, and flexible. The classes were small, so we had very good instructor-student interaction. There was a good balance between practical language skills and grammar. We also learned a bit about Latvian culture and history along the way. There was great benefit in being in a structure classroom environment, and also learning from the other students. I was pleased with my progress, and particularly happy that I was able to join the class online (via Skype) when I was not able to be physically present. I recommend Hieroglifs and Mr. Valters to those seriously interested in learning Latvian”.
