- Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania -
Enjoy the Transylvanian experience while learning a foreign language. BRIDGE LANGUAGE STUDY HOUSE Educational and International Examination Centre from Cluj-Napoca offers you the unique opportunity of studying Romanian or Hungarian language with experienced native speaker teachers in a traditionally Transylvanian background.
The aim of the summer course is to offer anyone interested in learning Romanian or Hungarian an interactive and comprehensive language learning opportunity in pleasant and comfortable surroundings. The added value of the learning programme consists in the following:
our communicative and practical teaching approach which encourages a very fast progress
an intensive focus on the cultural background of the language you wish to familiarise with
the unique opportunity of taking the only internationally recognised ECL Romanian and Hungarian language exam at the end of your studies
the possibility to attend our extra-curricular cultural programme
Within our Summer Course you have the possibility to choose the course-format best suitable for your learning purposes and learning style. We offer 3 types of courses, all of which include an additional weekly cultural programme:
Group-course min. 3-max. 8 learners in a group
One-to-one course tailor-made intensive programme for 1 learner (can focus on specific needs)
Tandem course - tailor-made programme for 2 learners at the same level (you will have to enrol at the same time)
The language programme also includes practical project-work, whereby learners will have the opportunity of applying their Romanian or Hungarian knowledge in well-defined real-life situations outside the classroom.
