Basic Phrases In Romanian For Beginners

Feb 3, 2008
Whenever you visit a foreign country or foreigners come to visit yours, or you simply fall in love with a person coming from other country, you have to know for the beginning some essential phrases in that language. The good news is that if you spend much time with a native speaker, you can learn the language in no time. Now let us see some basic phrases in Romanian, if you are interested in communication with Romanians.

As most of the learners prefer accurate presentation, we will offer some basic phrases in Romanian for you, in a list.

Romanian - English
Da - Yes
Nu - No
Da,va rog - Yes, please
Nu multzumesc - No, thank you
Domn, Doamna - Sir, Madam
Iata - Here is
Buna - Hello
Buna dimineatza - Good morning
Buna ziua - Good afternoon
Buna seara - Good evening
Cu placere - You are welcome
Noapte buna - Good night
Ce mai faci - How are you
Foarte bine, multzumesc - Very well, thank you
Ma scuzatzi - Excuse me
Ma putetzi ajuta - Can you help me?
Nu intzeleg - I do not understand
Nu shtiu - I do not know
Scuze - Sorry
Las -ma in pace - Leave me alone
Unde - Where
Cand - When
De ce - Why
Cine - Who
Care - Which
Unde este - Where is
Cat costa - How much
Eu vreau - I want
Ce este - What is
Imi place - I like it
Nu imi place - I do not like it
De acord - Agreed
E bine - That is fine

In the words "va, doamna, buna, ma, sa" the letter "a" is pronounced like in the English word "Sir". In the words "placere, ce, faci, place", "ce" and "ci" are pronounced like in "teacher" and in the words "cat" and "cand" the letter "a" sounds like in the Russian "you".

You may think that Romanian is easy. Well it is not at all, because there are some specific sounds, whose pronunciation cannot be associated with their spelling. For example, English-speaking people find it difficult to pronounce the Romanian "r". It sounds really funny uttered by them because their "r" as you well know is specific.

To continue with, French-speaking people may find it difficult to cope with the Romanian sound "h", because they simply cannot pronounce it. As far as the sound represented by the letters "b" or "o" is concerned, we can say that it is the most difficult sound for English speakers, whereas for Russians it can be quite easy because they have the equivalent sound, represented by the vowel in the Russian equivalent of "you".

Anyway, these basic phrases in Romanian can be quite easy, but you need interaction though with native speakers in order to develop fluency, to acquire specific accent, and not to sound funny.

Furthermore, any Romanian language trainers, even if they have to teach only basic phrases in Romanian, they must be aware of each trainees learning style. For example, some people learn better, when the subject is directly related to their life, others need charts and diagrams; in addition, some learners need practicing with a partner or work in groups, or learn a craft or skill with members of a community.

To conclude, before trying to teach a foreign person even basic phrases in Romanian, you must check his or her learning style and get ready for an adventurous but funny journey to the universe of an exciting language.
