A bit annoying.

Essays and/or projects throughout the course

I would apreciate more papers during the course instead of a big paper in the end. Having all exames in one period of time is not good when it becomes quite stressful.

Personal comments:
I attended courses in english and in latvian. At my home university in sweden i have attended a lot of courses in english so I feel sequre with the language. Latvian on the other hand i usually use just for speaking and writing letters, but i did not have any dificulties following the courses. It was a good experience that boosted my self-esteem.
