Country info and advice - Romania
The following comments are from teachers who have worked, or are currently working, in Romania. If you are a teacher and have some advice about Romania, please share here.
I have lived, worked and taught English for 14 years in Targu-Mures, Romania. My experience is that
Romanians are very good, diligent students. However, much of their learning is
theoretical and based on older didactic methods. Newer methods are filtering
through, but most students are not used to them. The result is that although
their grammar may be excellent, spoken English is usually weak. Students do
expect a high level of professionalism from their teachers and you have to
prepare thoroughly, especially considering how weak our understanding of our native grammar generally is!
