Learning outcomes
This four-semester course for students in Humanities is an introduction to the Romanian culture, as well as to the phonetics, basic grammar and vocabulary of the Romanian language, including simple conversation.
This is a beginners´ course for students whose main subjects of study are not necessarily philological, and the two teaching hours per week, in sometimes fairly large groups, available will not enable students to attain a higher level of proficiency in Romanian unless, having special interest in the language, they do additional individual work. Students should, therefore, not expect a systematic grammar course, aspects of the Romanian grammar will be explained in the context of the lessons studied. The students who attend all four semesters of the course on a regular basis should acquire (level A1) the ability to 1) read and write correctly a text in modern Romanian which they hear or which is dictated to them, 2) respond to everyday greetings and to wishes on special occasions (such as anniversaries, feast days, etc.), 3) understand better the authentic values of the Romanian culture rather than cultivating the clichés developed by certain circles in mass media.
During this course, the students will become acquainted with the phonetic rules of modern Romanian, will acquire basic vocabulary and grammar for everyday use, as well as knowledge of some aspects of the history, arts and culture in general of the Romanian people.
