The University of Bucharest organizes The Summer Courses in Romanian Language, Culture and Civilization, during 25 July – 8 August 2021. This year’s edition is online.

Founded by the renowned linguist Alexandru Rosetti in the ‘60s, in Sinaia, and coordinated for several years by professor Boris Cazacu, the University of Bucharest Summer School is the oldest academic initiative in Romania meant to promote Romanian language and culture abroad. For more than half a century, the University of Bucharest Summer Courses have gained recognition and prestige due to the participation of many reputed Romanian and foreign professors and academicians, as well as of distinguished scholars and artists.

Our Intensive Romanian Language Courses are designed using the communicative approach to language teaching, which means that vocabulary and grammar notions will be constantly put in relation with interactive purposes. In other words, our goal is not to insist on the theoretical knowledge of grammar, but on the students’ ability to communicate in everyday life. At the same time, the students will become familiar with the main speech acts (how to formulate apologies, thanking, congratulating, complimenting, giving advice, expressing an emotion, etc.) and with the Romanians’ cultural manner of speaking. In line with the European Language Passport, our courses focus on the four language skills: listening, speaking (spoken interaction, spoken production), reading, and writing.

The Romanian language courses are taught by professors from the University of Bucharest, academics, and specialists in linguistics and communication, having a high degree of national and international experience in teaching and testing Romanian as a foreign language. Students will be divided into three or four groups (A1, A2, B1-B2, C1), according to their level, which will be initially tested.
