Latvia is a small republic tucked away in Eastern Europe, bordering Estonia and Lithuania. And they speak Latvian there: the language has 1.5 million native speakers and uses a Latvian version of the Latin alphabet. It is part of the Indo-European language family and there are three dialects within it. It has masculine/feminine tenses and singular/plural relationships so making the transition from English to Latvian is a bit easier.
