I've looked in to this, but I can find no information about the language barrier.
As far as I can tell, you have to speak the language, and pass a language test before admittance in to the university, whereas in Denmark (random country I briefly looked at) the first year is taught in English, and there's heavy emphasis on learning their language in that year for the second and any others after that.

You only need to be ablt to speak whatever language your degree course is in. Since most courses are in the country's native language (including both Denmark and Latvia), you normally have to speak Danish or Latvian to be admitted onto the course. However, if you apply for a course in English, of which there are few if you look hard enough, you only have to be able to speak English! There'a a few courses in English at the university of Latvia: http://www.lu.lv/eng/istudents/degree/study/
