REACT_RO – Romania
REACT_RO are educational resources for learning Romanian language and cultural adjustment, implemented in Bucharest, Timisoara, Somcuta, Radauti, Galati and Giurgiu. The initiative is implemented and supported by the Intercultural Institute of Timisoara, the Romanian Immigration Inspectorate, the International Organisation for Migration Romania and the Schottener Foundation. The project aims to contribute to the development of a coherent package of educational resources for learning Romanian as a foreign language and social orientation according to the needs of status holders and foreigners in Romania.
The practice consists of developing educational tools and institutional capacity (governmental and non-governmental) to facilitate the adaptation and integration of status holders and foreigners into the Romanian society. The educational resource package includes the development of a curricular framework of Romanian language books for adults and children, at differing skill levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced level), accompanied by specific workbooks for Romanian language teachers and learners, and materials needed to assess competencies. Other materials to be developed include a cultural accommodation guide for beneficiaries, translated into 8 languages, and a general cultural orientation guide in 30-45-minute video format available in 8 languages (English, French, Arabic, Kurdish, Chinese, Turkish, Pashtu and Tigrinya) and subtitled in Romanian.
