Book Description

27 May 2005 0340906294 978-0340906293

Romanian, because of its Latin origin and the fact that it has borrowed words from other Romance languages, will be recognisable to anyone who knows French or Italian.

This book/CD course introduces both colloquial and written forms of Romanian. The emphasis is on learning to use Romanian in a variety of situations. No knowledge of grammatical terminology is assumed but traditional grammatical terms are included for those who are familiar with them.

Most of the 2,000 words introduced in the course are those frequently used in everyday conversation, and many of the vocabulary items are listed in the Romanian-English and English-Romanian vocabularies at the end of the book.

The 20 carefully graded units of dialogues, culture notes, grammar and exercises give you all you need to be able to cope with a whole range of situations and participate fully and confidently in all aspects of Romanian life.

The page design has been improved and sections headings are given in English to make it easier for you to learn Romanian without a teacher.

The accompanying recording (cassette or CD) has been recorded by native speakers and gives 70 minutes of listening practice. The recording is available separately or in a pack with the book.

Chapter 1 - repeat simple sentence - too simple
Chapter 2 - repeat more simple sentences - still very simple
Chapter 3 - loads of grammar with pronunciation and very complicated sentences.

upon the (frequent) suggestion of the author, I discussed/practiced with Romanian friends (native speakers) - they looked at the sentences I was learning and suggested I might want to find an easier book.

Not terrible, but not that great either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romanian 26 May 2009
Format:Paperback
Our Daughter-in-Law is Romanian and recommended this to our son to help him learn her language. We also wanted to learn so it was obvious to go for this product.

The book is good and is aimed at getting you speaking the language and not just understanding grammar. However, it is not just a phrase book and will give a reasonable grounding in the language. It is worth getting the pack because you get to hear native speakers on the CD and this helps pronunciation.

You don't have to have any knowledge of Romanian to start with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good reference material 14 Oct 2009
By C. FOX
Format:Paperback
The highlights include:
Quite a lot of coverage
Verb and dictionary sections

Lowlights:
You will need to supplement with other media to learn the language properly. Most useful of these are:
A Romanian person
English films with Romanian subtitles
Romanian magazines

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Buy 24 Jun 2007
Format:Paperback
I have had this book and cd for a few months now and it is extremely useful. Using the cd and the exercises you will pick up alot very quickly, there is a great section of verbs in the back and also a fairly detailed ENG-RO dictionary.Its a fantastict price as well :-). Another great buy is the Berlitz Romanian Phrasebook and Dictionary, much cheaper and better if you only need to learn key phrases and less grammar.
