Summary/Abstract: The present paper discusses the lapbook method, an active-participatory method, used, especially in primary school in Romanian schools, which we tried to implement in Romanian language classes for foreign students. Through this method, students express their (dis)satisfaction with the new socio-cultural environment in which they have entered, with the weather conditions, which can be very different compared to those in the country of origin, and with the language acquisition, offering teachers honest, interesting and substantial feedback on students’ new experience. The proposed experiment targeted the students from the Preparatory Year, enrolled at the Petroleum-Gas University of Ploiești, in the academic year 2017-2018. We started from the premise that the lapbook could be an attractive way, unlimited by the constraints of a traditional approach, to structure, organize, synthesize and understand the experiences, feelings, dilemmas, failures, disappointments, difficulties or successes of each stage our students go trough.
