Picking Up Basic Romanian Phrases The Easy Way

Feb 20, 2008
Sometimes you need to communicate with foreigners in their language. It could be a trip abroad, or a visit by foreigners that make it necessary to learn at least the basic phrases of a language. You could also fall in love with a person from another nation. Now the best way to pick up a foreign language quickly is to spend some time trying to communicate with someone, whose mother tongue is that particular language. Let us take a look at some essential phrases in Romanian, if you want to be able to converse with Romanians.

Most new learners want to learn the exact translations of some basic phrases. We provide you a list of such phrases in Romanian along with English translations.

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 Noapte buna Good night Cu placere You are welcome 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 Putetzi sa scrietzi? Could you please write it down? 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 carry on in the same vein someone, whose first language is French, will have a lot of trouble pronouncing the Romanian "h". Most will simply be unable to utter it. Similarly, the sound that the letters or stand for is very difficult to utter for English speaking people. On the other hand, Russian people can find it quite easy as the vowel sound in the Russian equivalent of "you" is basically similar to these sounds.

This is not to say you can never pick up the correct rendition of these basic Romanian phrases. All you need is to communicate with native Romanian speakers to avoid a hilarious rendition of the language and learn to speak with accurate pronunciation and fluency.

Learning the basics of a language depends not only on the student, but the teacher and the style of teaching as well. The person teaching even the rudiments of Romanian must keep in mind what method suits each individual student. Some learners might fare better if they can relate to the subject being taught. Others learn quickly if charts or pictures are used. For some, practicing with a partner is the best way to learn; others need to participate in group activity with a community, like learning a skill.

Therefore, when teaching Romanian to foreigners you must be aware of the way of teaching best suited to every single one of them. Once you have done that, be ready for an exciting and sometimes hilarious journey into the world of a new language.
