About Romanian Hub

Romanian Hub is a Language Learning YouTube Platform where I make fun, informative, and engaging Romanian Language Videos.

Why I’m doing this?

I have a passion for teaching and languages and I would like to make Romanian, my native tongue, one of the most popular languages in the world.

How can you help on Patreon?

I post a Romanian Language Learning video on YouTube every day, five days a week, from Monday to Friday. This takes a huge amount of time in planning, recording, editing, and uploading. But I believe so much in this project that I’m willing to put all my efforts into creating videos that can help people with their Romanian Language Learning.

Please consider giving a dollar every month (or as much as you can afford). Patreon helps me reach out to like-minded people who also love the Romanian language. So, every dollar you pledge will go towards making sure that more and more language lovers can learn Romanian.

What happens to your money?

To minimize production costs, there are only two people behind Romanian Hub. Myself, in front of the camera, and my wife, behind the camera. I also do the editing and all other YouTube related tasks, while my wife schedules my time.

I have already made a huge investment in semi-professional recording equipment but I know that the editing part still needs improvement. The money that you pledge here on Patroen will be used to purchase better software and plug-ins, take video editing classes, and hopefully set up a Romanian Hub dedicated YouTube studio with the cameras ready to roll and professional sound and lighting equipment.

Who is behind Romanian Hub?

My name is Voicu Mihnea Simandan and I’ve been a schoolteacher for almost two decades. I’ve taught English Language and Literature, Social Studies, and Psychology at all levels.

The person behind the cameras, my wardrobe advisor, and the manager of our improvised “home studio” is no other than my wife, Upashna Rai Simandan, herself a teacher with a strong passion for community service and literacy.

We are based in China where we both have full time jobs at an international school in Beijing but, originally, my wife is from India while I was born in Romania.

Together we are the Romanian Hub Team who believes that the Romanian language is a beautiful one which deserves to be taught at a worldwide scale.

What are our goals?

The Romanian Hub project is a labour of love that we will forever provide for free and make available to anyone around the world. You can help us reach that goal by pledging money here on Patreon.

The short-term goal is to expand our video production from 5 videos a week to 7 videos a week.

The medium-term goal is to upgrade our editing capabilities and set up a YouTube studio dedicated for Romanian Hub recordings and production.

The long-term goal is to make Romanian Hub a full-on Language Learning Program and launch a platform where learners can watch the video lessons, do follow up activities, engage in conversation with other learners, and find out more information about the intricacies of the Romanian language.

Our dream is that the Romanian Hub Language Program will be adopted by schools, universities, language centers, and other educational institutions worldwide and that Romanian will become one of the most popular languages in the world.

Example of a Romanian Language Lesson Video:

Topics Covered

We have already established flagship courses which explore all the language and literacy skills needed to become an effective Romanian language speaker:

- Romanian Language Lessons
- Romanian Language Vocabulary
- Romanian Language Numbers
- Romanian Language Conversations
- Romanian ABC Lessons
- Romanian Phonics Lessons
- Romanian Reading Lessons
- Learn Romanian Vlogs

In the future, we are panning to also create videos about Romanian culture, traditions, history, and travel.

Any worries?

Contributions are listed in $US, but you can pledge money from anywhere in the world, under any currency, and it will automatically be converted.

You can stop giving money to the Romanian Hub project at any time and still enjoy all the videos on YouTube. Remember, our project will always be free.

If you can’t afford donating $1US a month, don’t worry and don’t feel bad about it. You don’t owe me anything. But I’d really appreciate it if you could recommend us to a friend or acquaintance who might be able to pledge money for our project’s continuous success. Just tell them that you found these guys on Patreon who are creating a free Romanian Language Literacy Program for the world!

How else can you help?

If you’re a learner, make sure your watch one of our video lessons every day and leave a comment to practice the lesson and to let us know what other topics you’d like us to cover.

If you’re a teacher, allow your students to watch our videos daily, or assign them for homework. Also, we’d love to hear back from you on how you incorporated our videos in your lesson.

Subscribe to our YouTube channel to make sure you don’t miss the next episode and press the like button!

Also, share our YouTube videos on your social media account, especially on Facebook and Twitter.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and basically help us spread the word. After all, word-of-mouth and personal recommendation remain (even in today’s highly technological world) the best marketing strategies.

Thank you for your trust and support!

Both me and my wife work hard from 8-to-4 to earn a living. We know fully well that money doesn’t grow in trees so we’d like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your monetary contribution and for helping us teach Romanian to the world.

Together with you, as part of a bigger team and an even greater community of people who care, we can make Romanian the most popular language in the world!
