Have you ever ventured to the northeast of Europe with your language learning? To the Baltic to explore some of the oldest languages on the continent? Maybe now you will. Here’s 9 reasons to learn Latvian.
Latvian isn’t a language I’ve ever really thought about learning.
A few years ago now, me + Ashley went to the Baltic for a summer trip and so I’ve visited Latvia, but we were only in Riga and not for long so I didn’t get much chance to learn too much of the language beyond simple pleasantries.
However, after working on this video with James Granahan from Lingua Materna, a few of the reasons are quite intriguing, so who knows…!
