Romanian for Beginners I and II

What will I learn?

From words to sentences to full dialogues and short articles, Romanian will reveal itself to you in all its complexity and richness. These two courses will lay the foundations for your basic Romanian in a practical, conversational way.                                                                                                

You will learn to master the fundamentals of the language with vocabulary referring to greetings, introductions, shopping, the home, going out, business meetings, the seasons, and travel. In addition, you will study the basic principles of grammar and practice them in your workbook. Grammar is explained visually to help students absorb structures in the fastest, most efficient way. 

Since pronunciation is a demanding part of learning Romanian, the emphasis in class will be on the correct uttering of specific sounds, which you can also train extra at home with the help of CDs. ‘Useful Romanian’ is also a fun and handy section at the end of each unit, which you can complete with tips about the ‘real Romanian’ the teacher provides.

Each class has a maximum of 6 participants, which ensures you get the most out of it. The teacher provides personal feedback, you get a lot of time to speak and simultaneously you learn from classmates who have other questions and experiences.

Evening classes

We offer this course in the evenings at 17:15-19:15 or 19:30-21:30. The exact day and time will be decided at the beginning of each block on the basis of the students’ availability. 

On-line or off-line?

Our courses can be offered either on-line or in the classroom/hybrid class. During the application process you can give your preference. After applying we set up an intake meeting.
