6th World Dictation in Latvian

In case you want to check your skills of Latvian language, listening and writing in particular, you may join thousands of others online for a dictation. November 7, at 12:00, on the site raksti.org, actress and speech expert Zane Daudziņa will read a 300-word text in Latvian which you can write down and, if desired, submit for checking. You may also write it just for fun and not submit.

This is the 6th time the public dictation takes place. Last year, over 2,000 people from all over the world took part.
