I am a life loving soul that would love to help someone with their latvian language skills. I am not a qualified teacher but my language skills generally are excellent (in my native language) and very good in the others I know and practice. I promise very friendly time, lots of preparation from my side to make it the most fun and also easy time. It would be also important to know what specifically would a student wants to focus on, and we could together create a plan (or I could do it). I speak fluent English and good Swedish as well.
Latvian is a hard language itself, but with the right approach (printed materials I could prepare for you, daily conversations and chats even outside lessons whenever you want), I think it is easy to get to a basic conversational level fast.
Through fun. Flashcards, printed vocabulary words I would prepare for each section, we would surround ourselves with latvian songs, poetry, literature, and cinema to fully get 'the sound of it'. As well as I will communicate with you, and practicing speaking is the most important part.
In my opinion, if we do it intensively with frequent contact, a basic conversational level requires not even a year. It is definitely up to a person itself, how much time and devotion you would wanna give to this language.
