Welcome to Romania's English language teaching community!
Romania’s English teachers come together in regional TEFL associations, which form RATE, an IATEFL affiliate. To see information about each of these associations, please see the links in the top menu:
- Bucharest area, for Bucharest English Teachers’ Association (BETA)
- Central Romania, for Cluj English Teachers’ Association (CETA)
- Eastern Romania, for Moldavian Association of Teachers of English (MATE)
- Western Romania, for Timisoara English Teachers’ Association (TETA)
The yearly national ELT conference is organised in turn, by one of the above regions, in the following order: BETA, CETA, MATE, TETA. In 2015, it is Timisoara’s turn to host Romania’s ELT conference between November 6th and 8th.
The English teachers’ community in Romania also manages a professional peer-reviewed journal, RATE Issues, which is open-access. Readers and contributors can find it in the top menu link TEFL e-journal.
Students and teachers can find information about the education ministry’s English language contest “Olimpiada de limba engleza” in the top menu link Olympiad.
The Events section contains useful information for both students and teachers, including the RATE conference, while Resources mainly addresses teachers.
