Romanian – Evening Language Course

LocationRegent Street, Central London
FacultySocial Sciences and Humanities

Learn Romanian in London with our part-time Romanian evening courses.

Our language classes run from September to June at our central London Regent Street Campus just a few minutes from Oxford Circus. They are taught by experienced language teaching professionals who are native speakers of the language or equivalent. Adult students of all ages and nationalities from a wide range of backgrounds take part-time Romanian courses with us. You can also join a Romanian evening class in January for the second semester if you already have some knowledge of Romanian.

This Romanian evening language class follows a communicative approach to language teaching. Our lessons focus on language that is required for communicating in authentic situations with an emphasis on speaking and listening. Your progress will be assessed on an ongoing basis through homework, assignments and performance in class. You will receive verbal feedback from your tutor on every lesson and written feedback with your homework.

This level is for beginners and the first exposure to the Romanian language (Term 1), allowing you to start to communicate. You have no or little previous knowledge of Romanian.
