Program Overview

Program Description:
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).
