PROFILES: ANDREI CLAUDIU MATAOANU

I don’t know whether Andrei Catalin – from Lexis Mozart - has plans for his future career. He’s eleven and most kids his age have dreams. Some would like to become astronauts, others think they will be sports stars one day. What I know for sure is that Andrei can use English efficiently to write about a famous tourist attraction in Romania.

He has a chance to become a man of science. He proves excellent qualities of a keen observer:


The Bear’s Cave was discovered on September, 1975 by the miner from Chiscau, a village in the Apuseni Mountains. In the 1970s, the people were looking for marble to export, but when they blew up the cave and saw the beauty of it they decided to save it for tourist purposes.
The cave is 1500 m long, but only 900 m are arranged for visiting. The rest of it, about 600 m long, is now a scientific reservation. In this second part was found a bear’s sleeping place. Usually, the female bear after it gives birth makes such a sleeping place. Also, the men found, many bear pawsprints on the wall. 
Inside the cave there are limestone stalactites and stalagmites and many fossils of about 15,000 years old.
The temperature inside the cave is 10 C degrees all the time.

As any child his age, Andrei must have been fascinated by the legend of the scared bear and the attractive names given to the rooms and different types of formations: Magic Place, Lily Lake, Snow White’s home, Santa Claus, Rocket Ready for Launch, Candle’s Gallery, The Curtains, Old men’s council, Spaghetti etc

Watch the stalactites and stalagmites; they want to become columns. And they will. In 20 years, a 1 cm³ of limestone is added. Come back over 12,000 years to see the columns!!
 Every year the Bear’s Cave is visited by 200,000 tourists from around the world.
The cave is one of the tourist attractions of Romania.


Like a true ambassador of your country, you’ve convinced me. If one day Romania needs a Minister of Tourism, you can be one. If you want to recommend the foreign visitors of Lexis Top Students Blog another beautiful place to visit, please write.

Looking forward to publishing your new article.

PROFILES: CLAUDIA HARSAN, Bucharest, Romania


Claudia is a B-Senior level English student at Lexis Schools of Languages – Oltenitei Branch. During the holiday she went to an English Summer Camp at Cheile Gradistei in Romania, where she had a great time. She is the 1st prize winner in the "English ... and the whole world is yours!" online contest.

Why did she choose an English Camp to go to?
“I wanted to improve my English in a funny way. So, I decided to spend some time at DAD UK camp with my friends and neighbours. I thought that it was very difficult to communicate with the British teachers and the advanced students but I didn’t give up.”
She made an excellent decision.
“ My teacher Caroline was kind and helpful. We had lessons and workshops everyday, on interesting topics: British culture, Irish dances, grammar, vocabulary etc.”
But what she liked best were the sports and entertaining activities: horse riding, archery, climbing, mountain biking, swimming, paintball, orienteering (learning to use a map and compass to get from one marked point to another).”

I totally agree with her when she emphases that as a student of English the whole world was hers.
“It was a rewarding activity that requires communication, concentration, co-operation of team members. I enjoyed hanging out with lots of cool people. I would recommend everyone to give such an experience a try.
With love,
Claudia”

She came back from the camp determined to improve her English.

Good luck, Claudia! All the best to your friends - Ada, Horia, Claudia, Sergiu, Maria and Simina!
