Let us proudly mention "famous non-native learners of Romanian whom we natives, teachers or otherwise, see on TV, hear on the radio, and feel greatly impressed by: when the Ambassador of Japan gives a speech in perfect Romanian, when an Austrian CEO makes a public statement in perfect Romanian, we know they respect us, they understand us, they value us, and we give nothing less in return. To them, as well as to us, whether in business or arts, Romanian is mutual trust.”

His Excellency Mr Paul Brummell, former UK Ambassador - press conference in Romanian on the occasion of IHB's 15th anniversary


Ms. Andreescu is a competent Romanian teacher with strong work ethic. She possesses an open, accessible and she is sensitive to the issues involved in cross - cultural communication as well as relationships at a professional level.


I feel I have progressed throughout the year due to Diana’s professional, calm and patient approach, which i find has helped encourage me to continue learning the Romanian language."


As a General Manager of the bank I would like to express my gratitude for the excellent quality of your services. Each lesson has been a great opportunity to acquire new information and develop my skills in a very pleasant and useful manner.”
