Detailed course description

Romanian beginner & low-intermediate

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

You will learn to master the fundaments 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 it further in your workbook. Grammar is explained visually to help students absorb structures in the fastest and most efficient way.

Since pronunciation is a demanding part of learning Romanian, emphasis will be put in class 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 will provide.

Method: the manual Puls - Limba română ca limbă străină A1-A2 (Romanian as a Foreign Language), which includes a textbook, a workbook and two CDs.

Romanian intermediate I and II

Once you have completed the A2 level or if your Romanian is advanced enough, you can proceed to the next level, where the learning material is. You will acquire further and more in depth knowledge of the language under all its aspects: oral comprehension (listening), reading comprehension (reading), oral language skills (elaborating complex spoken discourses), and writing skills.

The 10 units of the manual provide students with models of communication situations structured on various themes and illustrated so as to support the spoken discourse. You will be able to have free conversations in Romanian using a complex vocabulary and grammar structure, which will undoubtedly impress your Romanian interlocutors and counterparts.
