REACT_RO: educational resources for learning the Romanian language and cultural accommodation of the Beneficiaries of international Protection (BPs) and of the Third-Country Nationals residing in Romania (TCNs)

The International Organization for Migration (IOM), the Bureau in Romania, in partnership with the Intercultural Institute in Timisoara and the Schottener Social Services Foundation, runs the project from July 2017 to January 2019 REACT_RO: educational resources for learning the Romanian language and cultural accommodation of the Beneficiaries of international Protection (BPs) and of the Third-Country Nationals residing in Romania (TCNs).

Objectives

The project aims to contribute to the development of a coherent package of educational resources for learning Romanian as a foreign language and orientation in society that takes into account the needs of BPI and RTT in Romania.

The educational resource package includes the development of a curricular framework of Romanian language books for adults and children, developed considering the language skill levels (beginner level A1- A2.1, intermediate A2.2 - B1.1 and advanced B1.2-B2 .1, accompanied by specific workbooks for Romanian language teachers and learners and materials necessary for the assessment of competencies.

As far as the orientation in society is concerned, at least 3 educational tools (a training course for trainers, a training manual for trainers, a guide for BPI and RTT) will be developed within the partnership, with intensive and interactive teaching as well as related assessment tools. A video material will synthesize the contents of the BP and RTT guides.

Partners

The implementation of these resources will involve experts from the Ministry of National Education, as well as foreign experts. The project will also form groups of trainers, both for Romanian language learning and for cultural accommodation, covering in a balanced way all regions of Romania and testing the resources developed for 6 months, contributing to their quality assurance.

Financing

The project is funded through the National Program - Fund for Asylum, Migration and Integration through the General Inspectorate for Immigration within the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Romania.
