Romanian Cultural Institute London Launches Its First Language Course

31/10/2016 - 23/01/2017 @ Romanian Cultural Institute, 1 Belgrave Square, London SW1X 8PH

The most recent addition to our permanent programme is a state of the art language course, devoted to beginners and taught by the highly experienced Laura Manu at the welcoming premises of 1 Belgrave Square. If you wish to embark on a journey of linguistic and cultural discovery, sign up today for the best Romanian beginner’s course in London. 

Its aim is to provide a thorough introduction to contemporary Romanian. By the end of the course, students will have covered basic grammatical constructions and acquired an essential working vocabulary allowing them to communicate within a limited range of situations in which learners are likely to find themselves. The course is taught in English and Romanian with coverage of the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing, and a balance between communicative activities, structure practice and grammar.

And once you’re in for the language experience you can get a taste of our rich and diverse culture by attending our exciting events. To find more about our cultural programme, please check this website or subscribe to our newsletter.
