Learn Romanian at RCI New York!
Time & Location
About The Event
The newest and much-awaited addition to our year-round program is a Romanian language course for adult beginners. Taught by Columbia University professor Mona Momescu on our welcoming premises in Murray Hill, the course aims to provide a thorough and enjoyable introduction to contemporary Romanian.
By the end of it, students will have learned basic grammatical constructions and acquired an essential vocabulary allowing them to communicate effectively within a range of everyday life situations. The course will be taught in Romanian and English, with coverage of the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing, as well as a good balance between grammar and structure practice, on one hand, and communicative activities, on the other.
In the meantime, in order to add some extra-spice to language practicing, the students will be invited to get a taste of Romania’s rich culture by attending our events.
