Saptamana aceasta, marti, un grup de 9 voluntari A.C.T.O.R. au avut parte de o lectie de romana speciala. Am comunicat in romana mai mult decat de obicei. De asemenea, am utilizat metode noi de invatare, precum cartile de povesti pentru copii sau jocul de scrabble. Am vorbit despre personaje magice, precum zane, dragoni sau pitici si a fost interesant sa vedem cum nivelul nostru de cunoastere a acestei limbi este egal cu cel al unui copil de 3 4 ani. Alina ne-a impartit in 3 grupuri si fiecare echipa a primit o carte cu imagini. Apoi am primit sarcina de a citi mai intai si de a incerca sa traducem cat mai mult singuri. Apoi, un membru al echipei a fost desemnat sa citeasca cu voce tare si sa traduca in engleza. Atunci cand nu intelegeam, Alina ne explica si astfel am invatat multe cuvinte noi. Am observat ca ne-am descurcat destul de bine, dar inca mai avem de invatat.
Apoi ne-am jucat Scrabble in romana. Mai intai, a trebuit sa construim 10 cuvinte folosind piesele jocului. Apoi, am primit o sarcina mai complexa si anume sa realizam o fraza, care sa contina cel putin 5 verbe.
Pentru mine, acest joc in limba romana e foarte interesant, pentru ca nu contine literele K, Q, W si Y. Toti voluntarii au reusit sa creeze fraze unice, majoritatea conectata cu activitatile lor, hobby urile sau pasiunile.
La sfarsitul lectiei, am primit materiale despre gramatica pentru studiul de acasa.
In aceasta lectie, am invatat multe cuvinte noi, in special din domeniul abstract. In plus, am discutat si despre verbe mai specifice, ceea ce este foarte important daca vrem sa invatam limba romana corecta. Am observat ca unii voluntari nu mai jucasera acest joc inainte si ma bucur ca au avut sansa de a cunoaste aceasta metoda educativa si interactiva de invatare.
This Tuesday nine ACTOR’s volunteers had special class of Romanian lessons. We had to use Romanian language more often than on previous lessons. We were learning Romanian through children pictures books about animals, dragons, dwarfs, fairies and other mythical creatures, so this was important and funny lesson for us, because we found out that our level of speaking Romanian language is a level of 3-years old child.
Alina divided us into 3 groups and every group of volunteers received one pictures book. Then we had some time to read first few pages of book and try to translate as many sentences as possible. After that, one member of every group read one page at loud and translated every sentence on that page on English. In case we didn’t know meaning of the word or phrase, Alina told us what it means on English, so we learned lots of new words on this lesson. We were quite good in some parts, but we still have to work on accent and pronunciation of some words.
After that we were playing Scrabble on Romanian. First, we had to form at least ten words with Scrabble letters on the boards. We could also cross the words just like in real Scrabble. Then we went on more complex level of game – we had to create sentences on Romanian that include at least five verbs using only Scrabble plates with letters. Romanian Scrabble is interesting from my point of view, because it doesn’t contain letters “K”, “Q”, “W” and “Y”. However, volunteers succeed to create unique sentences, mostly connected with their jobs, hobbies, likes and dislikes.
At the end of the lesson we received papers with printed lessons about Romanian verbs and nouns for further studying at home.
On this lesson we learned lots of new words, especially abstract terms. We were also introduced to the verbs for complex and not so common actions, what is actually important if we want to learn how to speak Romanian for real. I’ve noticed that some volunteers never played Scrabble before, so I’m glad that they were introduced to this amusing and educational game, and I hope that they will enjoy playing it in the future.
