I enjoyed watcing the film done in the capital of my own country. I think it is a good film, well-done, objective and proffessional. I am going to use it in my classes today and discuss it with my Ss. (kids but a group of adults ,too) It is very useful/worth watching it in terms of vocabulary as well as sharing experience on how to improve English skills.
On the other hand I’d like to thank the producers for being positive about my country. It’s encouraging for us all.
I would like you to see my pupils (aged 8 to 10 but very enthusiastic and fond of learning English).They are
Really it’s enjoable vedio. They have done great effort
“English club is a good way to leanrn english.
Thanks a lot! The best material for teaching.I’m going to use it on my lessons:)
hi dears. I am an Egyptian instructor and I thank you all ,especially the founder, to grant us the chance to improve the language of the students by these wonderful and fruitful videos. I believe it will help the intermediate and the upper levels not less . I have another opinion for the next videos, sometimes the students want to watch some funny educating videos. I don’t mean for fun, but for teaching English but covered by the sense of humor or fun.
looking forward for receiving more wonderful videos. With all thanks. Jasmine

Thanks for the Romania videa, I loved it a lot. I am a teacher of English from Hungary and interested whether you are planning to make such a video about Hungarian language learners, too. At the moment, I am residing in Norway…here you have a lot to shoot! Scandinavians are incredibly amazing in speaking English!!!Timi

I was wery excited when i saw that the 2’nd lesson, after Maroco, was in Romania. This is my contry, i was very pleased when i saw this video, even if they show as a part not very beautiful of Bucharest(the capital of Romania), a lot of streets in work, and some old buildings, but you have to understand that here are also a lot of beautiful things to see 🙂
Have a nice day all af you.
Kiss from Romania. 🙂
I really enjoyed watching this lesson and learn how people do their best to learn English, create personal methods to master the language via reading books, waching films and mainly the girl who bandaged her tv in order to hide subtitles.
What contributes to the beauty of this video is the way Romania is represented here: Arrival in the Early morning, Romania at night and the way Jowel welcomes us to Romania.
Very nice picture.
I m happy to be a member of englishclub. I m also happy to receive anytime some lesson that help me to inprove my english . i really appreciate this particular movie which show me that perseverance in language by learners is very important . i invite you to send us more movies and the advise from some english speakers. thanks for your kind collaboration.
João Ghizoni says:

Thanh Truc says:
I saw this film yesterday.”Lesson from Romania” is the second film of The learning English video Project.Well,I like it . It shows me how the people in Romania learn English so well. They do what they like:watching cartoon or movie,reading book in English and talking to native. It helps them to improve skills. I think it is necessary for me too. Thank you so much.
English Club: Well done!!It is a fantastic video,not only with touristic interest (which is very useful to see more of the world around us),but also with some important tips for foreign students,on how to improve in practising and using a different language.Looking forward for more!! (from Argentina)
Great job! I look forward to upcoming work of yours. Very entertaining way to find out how others are learning English. I teach English as a second language in the U.S. I plan to share this with others.
José Vieira Pedroso says:
Hello,I have no words to say about these videos,they are very good indeed.I watch them and I could see people in all the world learn english for better communication with people of any part of the world. I hope to see many videos like those ,thank you mr. Joseph Eisberger.

Aciu from Lithuania.
Congratulations for the idea! It’s a excellent one, especially for those that want really to learn a true English! But the English is a continuous phenomenon: it has a glorious and long past and an explosive enduring future…

chien tran ba says:
Thank you very much are my first words i would like to say to you. The film presents several different ways to achieve English from young Romanian persons. And I am really interested in lively pictures in Romanian streets. Thanks a lot for your efforts and energy spent to bring interesting and useful knowledge back to many people. Hopefully, We are going to be sent some new and exciting films in the near future.
thank you for the intention to help people to learn english, I now that I can muster up through your job.
Congratulation to the English Club team for the great ideas they have.
I always take the opportunity and show these videos to my students in class.They enjoy a lot and they jump at the opportunity to practice the listening.
Thanks for your help guys
I had the opportunity to know a bunch of young Romanians here in New Orleans that came with a hospitality program and they were pretty fluent and like dynamic. They made friends very fast, got jobs, and leave histories. We miss them.
I really took the time to watch this video and i think this will be very interesting for my class. Koreans are just so focused on their English exam scores that they have forgotten the fun of learning the language–and this has become a big hindrance in their fluency. I hope that by this video, it could somehow help them realize that it shouldnt just be studying but also passion and fun.
Wow great, I love this movie. Ican understand clearly. this is make me to do learn more and more, so I can improve my English.
It´s a quite wonderful video. In this case, we can confirm how important is our interest in learning a language. We can do it by ourselves, as we could see here. I have learned a lot with this travel to Romania. Thanks a lot. My best regards.
it is very good program and it help the people to learn a lot about English. i knew that the Romanians young people know a lot English and this language help them to go abroad.
I studied English in my country, Mexico, during two years. Then I came to U.S. six years ago and I continued learning this interesting and important language. Here in California is very easy to find where to study and it is free!!! Thank you for this beautiful and useful Romanian video. My favorite Olympic Gymnastics woman, Nadia Comaneci, is from this great country. It is amazing how well youngters speak English!!!
Ken Stevens says:
As an English teacher in Japan I was fascinated by this video, in particular to learn that the Romanian Education system has switched from focusing on English grammar and vocabulary to a more conversation based learning process to the detriment of learning grammar and developing vocabulary.
In Japanese schools the emphasis is on grammar and vocabulary thereby producing students who cannot communicate orally but who are quite capable in written English – great for internet and text messaging but obviously of little benefit in speaking.
It is therefore apparent that when teaching and/or learning English it must encompass the four elements; listening, writing, reading and speaking which requires a long term dedicated desire in order to become adept in English. language communication.
To achieve proficiency, as highlighted by the Romanian students, one must have the desire/passion to become skilled at English and must complement their studies by reading English books, newspapers, magazines etc, watching English TV and movies, listening to English radio and music and speaking English with native English speakers.
Your videos are extremely helpful to both students and teachers as they enable us to hear and learn from those who have been successful in mastering the art of English conversation .
I am looking forward to learning more and receiving re-enfocement of my teaching methods from your next lesson series video.
TAM DANG says:
Thanks a lot for this movie. Watching the movie I know more about some people who learning English like me. And I can get some more experience about how to learn English better. I hope to receive some more movie like that.
Thanks and best regards,
Tam (in Vietnam)
I am learning English just trying to speak the language well as good as the native its self. so this Video is very helpful and the tips to learn English is beneficial for me to follow the Romanian people methods.
The fast way to get gain in learning English is to speak. You can exploit your opinion in speech but the great stuff to support you are the capability of listening the word so who ever the speaker they have to pronounce the word correctly.
I am very pleased to watch this Video. Thank you to all of you who gave me the chance watching this video. I hope I will get the next opportunity.
My best regard.
Dear English Club, Indeed it is really a helpull lesson.

i love english club!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dear English Club,
Thank you very much. Please continue help us in learning English. God bless!
Hi, really amazing!
Somehow is clear that each one has his own way to learn most effective, but I’ve never applied this knowledge for language learning. For me this film showed different people, who learned English in different ways, and all succeeded! Each one should realize that all people can learn everything and the only important is the motivation. Do what you like to do, learn in the way you prefer. Marcos.
you you says:
really .it s good film.you know. english club is the best.it can help us to understand how to improve our English languageThanks for your help us I really enjoyed.
Thank you for the invitation.thak you very much.
Alonso Elizondo says:
Believe it or not, this video is going to be quite usefull to me.
On June the sixth I am starting my own classes as a teacher. I feel as though showing this film on the first class students will feel more encouraged to learn english.
It is a good job for English Club to carry out this kind of performances in special for those who want to learn tips for picking the idiom up.
Even though I live far away from Romania, I expect to travel there someday!! By the way, I am getting culturarly aware.
Firstly, I think that we are really lucky becauce of having a great many of elements has became in widespread in everyway in recent years and we reach them easily.
Secondly, This project give us an point of view about which methodology can be selected.
Finally,we can learn english in our country as if we were in original environtment.
Thank you so much, we are getting become self-confidence as more and more learning. I had been studying by meyself for a long time, after englishclub,I realized that we need kind of materials like which support us.
After sending, I saw some mistakes which have not been noticed.
Unfortunately, system doesn’t give permission to correct.
hallo, i am from bali, nice to see your video, thank you
Hello everybody. Well, I’ve got to say that this is a very nice job, it seems very demanding and very satisfactory.
This project really help us to improve our English skills and gives us a lot of imformation about other people learn English. However, and I must be honest; I like more the previous video recorded in Marroco. The people who were interview in the fist one had faced more difficulties on learning English, meanwhile in Rumania, everybody seemed to be successed on the process.
I love these videos because it gives us a lot of views taking into account different contexts, that why I can say I’m a fan of this project.
Both films were quite informative as concern English language and at the same time very sensitive.
They gave me the sense of the countries.
Thanks a lot for so great work! You have done it with love for people like me, who needs it and looks forward the next films.
That’s great information you bring to me. English is my favourit. I like to listen to daily conversation and sharing info like you provided much. Thank you !

Samuel Rodríguez Cano says:
I´ve enjoyed this video a lot. It is very well done. It shows the country, the context in which English is learned in a very entertaining way. The comments by the people chosen are very enriching.
hi daniel, i love your video, also your previous video. i like your classroom material too. sometimes i use it to my students. but i could not watch your video in a whole. it runs every 2 until 5 seconds. maybe the network is ‘crowded’. thank you very much. i’m waiting your next invitation.
It will be better if you make us famillier with countri’s culture.
wilford toussaint says:

Thanks English Club,you show us one of the best way for learning ESL!
ligia galaz says:
It has been a wonderful practice even for me .
All the students have shown us that English really works for everyone who is definitely intresested in learning the language.
This video has a lot of concepts students must be aware of such as the use of infinitive or gerund after certain verbs, on the other hand the different way of speaking gives us the opportunity to know and listen different accents ad how they pronounce the same words.
I will take advantage on this in order to give the oportunity to my students to notice all these tips.
Thanks a lot for allowing us to use this website.
I’ve watched your video. It is very interesting. I hope you’ll travel to more other countries.
As a teaching of English language I would like to invite you to Mongolia to meet our youth.
I’ve watched your video. It’s great!thank you very much!…..

Frank wang says:
I CANN’T WATCH ANYTHING,I DON’T KNOW WHY IT IS?
What a terrific educational video it is!
It is so touching that I want to produce that sort of video.
Thank you so much for the wonderful video.
I want my students to know the way how English is learned quickly.
I am also looking forward to visiting Romania!
Wow! This is an interesting find.
Great project! You chose good people to interview and asked good questions.
But…I don’t care for the music. It’s so heavy and dark. It doesn’t seem to go with the content. Can you try something lighter?
Otherwise, great job 🙂
TAHRI ALI says:
Hi every body! This is Ali from Tunisia. I’ve been a teacher of English for 17 years. I’ve just watched the report from Romania. It’s really amazing.
Yet, I have a dilemma as a practitioner in class. Students are lacking that firm grasp of grammatical structures (accuracy) which are necessary for the production of well-formed utterances and texts (fluency). So, the approach which came into existence to show that ‘accuracy’ was achieved at the expense of ‘fluency’ with the audiolingual theory can be similarly criticised for its favouring ‘fluency’ at the expense of ‘accuracy’.
What do you think?
the oficial language in romania is romanian.not a chance to be russian.
so this guy emmerson must have all the correct information before posting something.
Kat says: The official language in Romania is Romanian. Not a chance to be Russian.
So this guy Emmerson must have all the correct information before posting something.
Who said it was Russian?
I don’t know why I can’t watch whole of the video,and I watched only half of the video,then it stuck.=-=
Dwi Kurniawati says:
Hi I’m Dwi from Indonesia. the people, especially the villagers in my country are still thinking that English is useless. By watching the movie I remembered when the first time I studied English. The comments are excatly just the same as what I did to learn English. I listened to some new songs that I didn’t know the lyrics and then I tried to write down and sang the song. I didn’t know whether it was right or wrong but it helped me a lot. The movie is so supporting me and I know I must study English anywhere and anytime.
Thank you English club for producing such a wonderful video. The tips on how to improve English are very good for learners.
I think that it´s important have people who talk to or living abroad. I´m my case I can understand English but not talking at all.
English is today my second language. After some time studying by myself, I am now taking advanced english classes with a teacher that has made me to improve a little my pronunciation. But I still don’t feel ready to make a trip for a language english country, for intance. I think that what I know isn’t enough to live for some time, in countries like that. Pahaps it is time for more conversation. This is the motive of my visit here. Conversation. That’s what I need.
Yeah…we have skills… and it isn’t about english, but foreign languages in general !
When you live in communism, your dreams can only become true by learning a foreign language, it is like a mind travel through the world !
What can I say?
Proud to be romanian !!!
Proud to be a polyglot!
Have fun in Romania ! There are no communication limits!
wow! the movie just brighten my brain..it’s been long time since i graduated from my college i never maintain my english. i rarely read or hear english text and sound until i feel like a small frog in a box..i feel what i have with me is enough for me..then i realize i need to enrich and maintain my english skills otherwise i’ll loose for good..then i try to surf the internet to find the site which support my will..then i found english club..o thank you so much founder your EC has just saved my life!god bless you all..
hello evry body
lerning english is a great achievment for me.so i hope to learn english as soon as posssible.
best of luck
Thank you very much to all the organisers of this little educational trip to Romania! I am currently studying here, in England, and believe me it makes my heart pound seeing that there are actually people who want to improve our image as a post-communist country and show off that we have great people, with lots of potential and skills in spoken and written English Language.
All my respect & all the best!
M.Alessandra Agostini says:
I’ve never been to Romania, even if I travelled a lot around Europe. Watching the video, I thought that Romania is still poor. Some images of it are quite miserable. Anyway, the English of the Romanian students was really excelllent, especially if I remember my Italian students and their pronunciation.
Their advices were very interesting and they denote a real interest in learning English, a thing which is not common to the Italian students. I don’t know why, but I think they are overall lazy!!!!!
I think the most important step to learn english and speak it well is trying to talk to people in English as possible as you, try to spend your spare time speaking and reading english text in aloud and talk even to your self 🙂
I think it helps alot, because i tried to do that and i’ve succeeded to improve my languague skills more than before!!
I will like to comment on providing enough teaching aid for the teaching of English.
Nice job keep it up!
Ive just watched the video and read a few comments.What does poverty have to do with the topic of the video?It made me remember a video from Italy.A guy (who happened to be Romanian)was shot in an Italian subway.He was shot by accident,a bunch of Italians wanted to shoot a guy from a rival herd of Italians.For about half an hour the man lay on thecement of the italian subway ,with his wife yelling for help and waiting for the ambulance-and with NO Italian stopping to give them either help or attention.the guy died.I have often asked myself if this would have ever happened in Romania,you know,the country of Gypsy thieves and all those clichees(which ,of course,appear in this liittle video too).What good Italy s glamour-past and present-if it has led to nothing more than indifference to human life .i guess even animals would stop and sniff an wounded animal.,at least to see if they can eat the fallen one…So there.Its OK for any European to come to Romania,we can cater for all tastes.If what happened above is what civilisation means,Im sure we can cope with European standards.Moreover,our English is excellent
im rather young,but I studied english in both regimes_i started as a student in the communist one and have continued to this day.This might entitle me to an opinion u might want to hear and learn from.In my opinion,Romanians DO happen to have extraordinary native ability to learn foreign languages.it must be smth in their brain…Another thing that helps tremendously is the fact that most shows in English are subtitled-not dubbed,and the Romanians are very open to the world-wE have Oprah,Mc leod s daughters,lots and lots of films-mostly what is on in the world.,we tend to have iton TV-therefore,we are generously exposed to hours and hours of listening to English,to lots of accents ,dialects,colloquial and formal styles-u name it.ONE thing I would like the whole world to consider is this_i think that,paradoxically,the study of English in Romania started to lose its quality with the advent of these new methods,ie the ones focusing on communication,easy,cheap dialogues,etc.There should be a measure of old style teaching,translating and grammar-some students simply learn this way-they are visual learners or really need repetition in order to learn certain things.If I were to start Chinese now.,i would definitely learn more if the teacher translated in my native tongue,not by letting me guess that certain sounds accompanied by a wave and a smile are very likely to mean Hello.actually,I think that only using the taught language in class is a mistake and a waste of time,frustrating and discouraging.Also,one thing we do in Romania-using Cambrige manuals meant for adults and mostly self study rather than simpler books ,with shorter texts and a more didactic approach (focusing on teaching,rather than testing)would be more effective.If u think Romanians have an excellent level of English,then please consider the fact that it is so including due to old school teachers of English,who were shaped through old school teaching techniques.We shouldnt be so fast in dismissing the old ,as the most mature of u would have already discovered.(Wouldnt it be nice if some ppl from our ministery of education read this too and their English were as good as our students”)have agood spring
3rd message.after all,the alternation between the images,with peeling roofs and tin shops and the beautifully pronounced interviews does have a message-as a poem goes,Dont u know /that only mud-bottomed lakes/breed water lilies?Or in street vocabulary,dont judge a book by its covers.Or in T shirt language-Sometimes,MORE is less.comfort and richness at times breed nothing but boredom,laziness,slowness of the spirit.(and economic crisis).You know what they say Beethoven s mother was pretty insane and his dad a drunkard.The idea that can be squeezed out of here(for those who like to squeeze ideas out of everything)is that we humans should pay more attention to all poor children of history-that s where hope might come from,from the least expected places.There.Now we can go on playing

This video talk about: Why the Romanian speaks English so well? And what kind of tips they have used to improve their abilities to speak English?
I think that this video is very interesting because show us different forms for learning English. For example: reading some books in English, listening to music, meet native speakers and speak with them.
The reasons which the Romanian young people speak English so well are: They are very interesting in the language and the use what they like to learn; if you like to sing, you try to understand the songs you prefer or if you like to read, you can read deferent kinds of books that help you to learn deferent grammar rules and be familiar with different words and situations.
One of them said that reading books helped him to improve his abilities in English, for me this is a method that aloud me to learn the language I like more than the traditional method. The most important in the learning is be interesting and dedicated and what ever you choose to learn.

I’m an English mother-tongue ESL \ Cambridge teacher and examiner in Italy, where we have many exchange students from Romania and other countries coming to the language centre where I work.
I can safely say that, yes, Romanians speak perfect English. I find this project very gratifying and a useful tool in and out of the classroom. Keep up the good work.
