Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For years I tried to find a book that would explain Romanian grammar. With this book I hit the jackpot! Not only did it do this but it explores how words are combined within the Romanian language and gives a detailed account of verbs.
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is studying the Romanian language, with its help I am almost fluent. Before purchasing this book I hardly knew any verbs and verbs are crucial in order to speak in any language.

I would like to thank the author for creating such an informative work.

I hope this review is of use to those wishing to learn Romanian. Happy learning! :-)

This is excellent for someone like me who has to know the grammar involved when learning to speak a language. It is clear, concise and is very useful in conjunction with CDs.

"Essential" Grammar Book. A Must Have 9 Sep 2013
By B. J. Oleniacz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I say this with confidence- people who do not read this book will not learn how to speak Romanian fluently.

Firstly, the book clearly explains the Romanian Verbal system in English for the first time in history. The 11 classes of verbs are presented in a learnable chart and thoroughly broken down and explained.

Full of useful tables and charts, and lots adequate examples of usage for the extremely complicated demonstrative pronoun system.

Common turns of phrase explained, as well as noun declensions and parts of speech.

This book revived my hope that learning Romanian is possible, and now I can say that I am successfully holding conversations with Romanians.

If you think you can understand Romanian grammar without this book, think again. Until I found this book, Romanian grammar was a complete mystery to me- and I speak 4 Romance languages (Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Italian). Every serious student of Romanian should read and study it closely. "Thank you!" to Romana Gönczöl Davies for making her language accessible to the West.

Great book. Recommended.
An Essential Grammar ...? lol. No interactive lessons in it, but it doesn't say that there are in the description. 5/5
Helps a lot 14 May 2014
By Richele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have found this book very helpful for the structure of Romanian. However, it cannot help with pronunciation quite like speaking it. I often say things and while in the correct grammatical structure is there, I botch the pronunciation. I am impressed with the book and would recommend it to others trying to learn.
