IH Riga is a modern language school in Latvia. The school was founded in 1993 and it is located in the historical centre of the city, in relatively newly refurbished, nicely designed premises. As a Teacher Training Centre we offer Cambridge CELTA, the IHCYLT, Delta Module One Preparation and other courses.
We have grown to be one of the largest private language schools in Riga employing over 60 people.
We teach all ages from three years old and our school offers English, German, Latvian, Spanish, Italian and French courses. We teach the public (both adults and children) general English and exam preparation classes and some business courses. Ninety-five percent of the classes are in-school.
Riga is a large modern city with a medieval heart and art deco districts so there are always plenty of things to do and see. The main cultural and entertainment attractions in Riga are all within easy walking distance. The famous Jurmala beach resort is close to the city.
The teachers enjoy an active social life in Riga. The school organizes trips to places of local interest and parties at least 3 times a year. Some of our native speaker teachers have been with us 10-15 years, which shows both the quality of teachers we employ and the respect with which we treat them in a very pleasant working environment.
Working with us is an opportunity to work as part of an exceptional team of dedicated teachers. Our teachers collaborate and shares ideas all year round in our spacious and well-equipped staffroom. The teachers’ room complex is large and airy with a large stock of methodology and resource books for all ages and levels. There is also a small staff kitchen and a school café for staff and students. All teachers have their own classrooms which have wife, disk players and TVs.
