Learning of the Italian Language at Riga Secondary School No 2
In 2001, Riga Secondary School No 2 in co-operation with Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs began to offer the Italian language as an optional subject for pupils in years 7 – 12. Due to the fact that pupils showed great interest, Italian was offered as the third compulsory foreign language. When the Ministry of Education and Science approved the Italian language subject standard developed by Riga Secondary School No 2, it became possible to take school leaving examination in the Italian language. Apart from this, every year pupils stage plays in Italian, as well as take part in co-operation projects with schools in Italy. The project has been successful and many pupils continue acquiring Italian and Italian culture in higher education institutions in Latvia and Italy.
