Topic outline

  • General

    The Romanian language course is conceived, first of all, in order to acquire the language from a communication aspect, proposing not only the acquisition of the fundamental structures of the Romanian language, but also their application in the current conversation. The aim is to develop the language skills established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, namely: comprehension of spoken language, oral expression, comprehension of written language, writing a text, interaction in conversation.

    The topics that are approached in mastering the vocabulary refer to the Romanian civilization, society, culture, literature, Romanian history, Romanian geography, Turkish-Romanian relations and influences, Romanian language and linguistics.

    Romanian language courses are organized by learning units, each one presenting grammar, vocabulary, language acts, oral comprehension, written, oral expression, written and conversation activities.

    The practical introductory course in the study of the Romanian language familiarizes students with the Romanian language system from a functional perspective, based on phonetics and grammar lessons, activities and practical applications. The grammar elements are integrated in dialogued texts and in conversations with topics from everyday life, for the consolidation of the learned structures and for the development of fluency in communication.

    The direct method is used in teaching the Romanian language, which means limiting to the maximum the use of any contact language and the use of the Romanian language in teaching from the first day of the course. Interactive courses are organized, in which all communication skills are practiced in turn: comprehension after listening and comprehension after reading, oral and written expression, without neglecting grammar and vocabulary.

    The Romanian language courses organized within the University of Ankara provide a general framework that offers students the opportunity to communicate in Romanian to carry out their activity later, in a Romanian environment, addressing general topics in lessons focused on the needs expressed by students, lessons focused on speech and on the development of communication skills to ensure clarity and fluency in expression in Romanian, both in general contexts and in contexts of specialized language.
