- Interview on Latvian language examinations
Latvijas Avize interviewed the Head of the Centre for Curriculum Development and Examinations (ISEC) Mrs. Agrita Groza and the Head of the State Language Certification Unit Mrs. Anta Lazareva. According to the interview, 5069 people took Latvian language exams in 2008; 29% of them failed. There are two Latvian language testing commissions: one is the State Language Certification Unit that certifies people if they need a certificate for their professional duties or for receiving residence permits, the other is Naturalisation Board that tests Latvian language for obtaining Latvian citizenship.
