Are you interested in Romanian Language Classes for your kids? Join our waitlist and we will let you know when our next class starts.

Romanian United Fund is offering a paid 12-session Romanian language course, in partnership with ARCS- American Romanian Cultural Society.

Classes will be offered in person at our ROCO, our Romanian Community Center in Chicago. The age groups and start times will be determined by the responses we receive.


Important Note

The first class to run will have a minimum of 5 students of the same age group. Please note that at this point we cannot guarantee class placement - joining the waitlist is only an expression of your interest, so we can determine how many teachers we need, and for which classes there is demand. We'll try to offer more options in the near future.
