1.
How many levels/steps do you have in your school?

There are six basic levels: Beginner, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate and Advanced. In order to assure more effective learning results, we divide the 3rd (Intermediate) and the 4th (Upper-Intermediate) levels into 2 sub-levels, namely Intermediate Basic/Intermediate Conversation, Upper-Intermediate Basic/Upper-Intermediate Conversation. Accordingly the number of levels reaches 8.

Each level comprises at least 96 academic hours and lasts 4 months.

Each group meets 2 times per week for 2,15 academic hours.

Are the teachers Romanian or Russian speakers? Will they translate into native language if requested?

The teachers speak exclusively in English, even with Beginner and Elementary students. We believe that an English-only class environment contributes to the most effective learning. However, if requested the teachers might occasionally translate.
