Summer School «Intensive English and Cross-Cultural Communication»

We are living in the century when the whole world can be recognized as one common space where we all should get along and care for each other and the planet. Thanks to modern technical progress, we can go to any place on the globe, just pick one you like more. Due to this fact we are able to meet different people. But are we ready for it? Are we ready and willing to understand diverse cultures?

This summer school offers a wonderful opportunity to widen your inner boundaries and come to Latvia for cultural difference, intercultural communication and, of course, the English language proficiency experience – to improve your all-round language ability and develop your fluency and communication.

Students will participate in lectures, discussions, debates and conversation activities on topics related to cultural changes, urban social ecosystems, sustainable entrepreneurship and social business, so the main aim of the participants’ effort will be to focus attention on the ideas and solutions that create social value as well as the processes through which they are generated.
