Here is the feedback of the students who have attended the preparatory year:
The preparatory year is something very necessary for me because at the end of the year I have to be able to use the Romanian language at a native speaker level. I am gaining a new personality during this course. I learn about Romanian culture and customs. The Romanian language course is very interesting and useful. Teachers are well prepared and very helpful. The subjects help us a lot and I particularly like the presentations in Romanian. I like all the teaching methods used. Overall, I enjoyed the first semester and I found it very useful.
I would like to thank all the teachers without exception for all the efforts made in the first semester of the preparatory year for the Romanian language, it was a wonderful and memorable semester. The teachers used their best efforts to teach us Romanian, even by explaining in French and English. For me, Romanian language is a bit difficult, but it must be learned, because it is the key to study next year and complete our studies in the chosen fields. Learning Romanian helps us meet our daily needs when ordering or buying something, etc. Finally, I would like to thank you again and send my best regards.
From the first day I came to Romania I had many expectations, a new experience, new knowledge, adventure and many new things to explore. I came from another country and everything was different (…). The faculty was interesting in the first days of school. After starting online classes it was a bit difficult, but with the help of my teachers and colleagues it became easier. The teachers worked hard during the semester to give us the most pleasant experience during the Romanian Language preparatory year, so that we can learn as fast as we can. The course materials were rich in information about Romanian culture, religion, geography, history and traditions. In general, the materials were interesting and diverse. The preparatory year is a year full of experiences and lessons for those who want to study in Romania.
The preparatory year is an important year for us, the foreign students, because it opens the gate to knowledge about Romanian culture, its history, and the people, and that helps us join the local community. We are discovering and learning the Romanian language, which is a new language for us. Teachers can speak and explain in more than one language, which facilitates comprehension.
The preparatory year in Cluj was a very pleasant experience. I learned about Romanian culture, both by studying the Romanian language and by interacting with teachers and students. For this I thank the guiding teachers, but also the people from the TUCN administration. Cluj will remain a warm, welcoming place, where I will return every time with joy.
