Do you want to make quick progress with your Romanian? Do you want to understand and be able to use all aspects of grammar and vocabulary? I would be very happy to help you and make learning this language enjoyable for you.
My name is Camelia and I am a native Romanian speaker, currently living in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
I have a creative mind and one of my strongest attributes is my determination to learn and undertake new challenges. l love exploring different cultures - in particular I have spent a significant amount of time learning about the Japanese culture, but I do consider that each culture has its own charm. My passion for foreign cultures is one of the main reasons I love to teach! I believe in the unconditional value of human life and I find I often have an affinity with people who appreciate nature and simplicity. My hobbies include writing, cooking, reading, traveling, and photography.

My lessons are interactive and engaging. I will coach and support you every step of the way to ensure you become fully competent and confident to communicate in Romanian. I am happy to teach you in a way that suits you.
A typical lesson with me will involve lots of conversation, engaging activities to expand your vocabulary as well as useful techniques to improve your understanding of grammar. I would be delighted to create lessons specifically for you based on your current level and to help you achieve your aspirations. My lessons are supportive, fun, friendly and motivating, and I can incorporate all four aspects of language learning (reading, writing, speaking and listening).
