Liden & Denz to open in Latvia

June 24, 2013


Russian language school Liden & Denz has announced its first expansion overseas, with a centre set to open in the Latvian capital of Riga in January 2014.

The Liden & Denz Language Centre Riga will use the premises of Education Centre Durbe, an existing operator which has recently passed the Eaquals inspection scheme, and the cooperation between the two schools is based on a far-reaching agreement covering both academic and non-academic areas of the business.

Liden & Denz Owner, Walter Denz, said, “This is the first time ever we enter such a close cooperation. Our partner school has made great efforts to bring their course portfolio, starting dates and syllabi in line with ours. This will allow students to move easily from Riga to St. Petersburg and Moscow or vice versa. Nora Poisa, the owner, runs a lovely school right in the historical centre. I am convinced that our students will appreciate Riga to learn Russian!”

Poisa said, “Our two teams have worked hard to create a win-win situation with the aim of bringing more students to our beautiful city. Liden & Denz have an impressive agent base and are the market leader for providing Russian courses. Teaming up with them makes absolute sense to us.”

Denz said there were a number of benefits of studying Russian in Latvia: As a Schengen country many students will be able to travel visa-free; the Jurmala suburban resort area is close to Riga and will serve as a summer residence for junior courses; Riga offers executive accommodation options; and the country is easily accessible, served by several European low-cost airlines.

Bookings and enquiries for 2014 study in Latvia are being accepted and will pass through the central Liden & Denz booking office. Agents including Riga in their portfolio will benefit from the same conditions as for the Russian-based schools.

The original Liden & Denz school in St. Petersburg was established in 1992 and a second centre in Moscow was added nine years ago.
