Learn English in Romania

A local host mother teaches a Projects Abroad volunteer about Romanian cooking in Eastern Europe.

English is increasingly spoken in Romania, as it is one of the main foreign languages taught in schools and a growing number of Romanians can communicate freely in it. With Projects Abroad, you have the opportunity to study English in Romania while exploring the country and fascinating local culture.

The English Language Course in Romania involves one-on-one lessons with a qualified local language teacher. When you arrive, you will be assessed and taught accordingly based on your level, whether you are a beginner or have an advanced level of English. Additionally, you can ask for your lessons to be tailored to your interests as well. The course includes an average of 15 hours of instruction per week, Monday to Friday.

Outside of class, you will have a lot of free time to explore your surroundings and you can practice your conversation with your host family, members of the local community, and other Projects Abroad volunteers. Projects Abroad volunteers come from various countries and backgrounds, including Europe and North America, and spending time with them is a wonderful opportunity to experience cultural exchange! Your lessons will involve practical components as well and your teacher will take you to markets, shops, and museums to practice what you’ve learned.

Alternatively, you can undertake a short 5-hour, 14-hour, or 30-hour course in English. These courses are tailored to your needs and run alongside your main volunteer project or internship. This is extremely useful if English is not your first language and if English skills are required for your project. If you are planning on volunteering abroad for twelve weeks or more, you could also complete a 60-hour course alongside your volunteer experience.
