Between 6th July - 20th July 2014 BABEL Center Timisoara organizes a summer course on Romanian as a foreign language.
Why Timisoara? Because Timisoara is Romania’s intercultural capital. It has centuries of experience in the art of dialogue with 12 languages spoken and 8 religious confessions. Thus, Timisoara is a successful Babel. Learning another language and teaching others’ your own language is part of the town’s DNA. We know what it takes to feel a foreign language as your own.
Why BABEL? Because our aim is excellence and innovation in teaching foreign languages. Have you already seen the most modern course book for Romanian as a foreign language? Imagine you could spend two intensive weeks under the guidance of the author of the book and of a team of teachers passionate about the latest methods in teaching (active learning, interaction, authentic communication). Well, here you can. You can study together with Daniela Kohn, Daniela Magiaru, Doriana Boc Andrasescu. We use as linguistic support the most up to date course book for Romanian as a foreign language: PULS (I + II).
