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! :-)

I want a refund. I am shocked at the number of spelling mistakes and typing errors in the Romanian sections of this book. I am studying Romanian and it is absolutely unacceptable for a grammar book to contain errors which wrongly inform the reader. It may be only the Kindle version, but if you pay £28.49 for an electronic grammar book you expect it to at least be correct.

I have only read 25% of the book, but I am giving up here as I no longer know what is correct and what is not.

I have found the following mistakes in only the first quarter of the book:

Chapter 1.2
Lordania (not Iordania)

Chapter 2.2
scotian (not scoţian)
scotiancā (not scoţiancā)

Chapter 2.3.1
coralcorali (not coral - corali)

Chapter 3.1
niste case (not niște case)
niste tramvaie (not niște tramvaie)

Chapter 3.3.1
Mircea eel Bātrân (not Mircea cel Bātrân)
El scrie eel mai corect (not El scrie cel mai corect)
eel cu coarne (not cel cu coarne)

Chapter 3.4.1
Fiecare carte a mea a fost un success (not Fiecare carte a mea a fost un succes)

Chapter 4.5
Scurnpo (not Scumpo)

Chapter 4.6.5.2
This ad ective (not This adjective)

Chapter 5.1.2
Cui ?i scrii scisoarea (not Cui îi scrii scrisoarea)

Chapter 5.1.3
Florile roșii, le-am prirnit de la Mihai (not Florile roșii, le-am primit de la Mihai)

Chapter 5.1.4
Care sunt locurile noostre (not Care sunt locurile noastre)

This is where I stopped reading as I realised I cannot learn the language accurately using this book. These mistakes are only the ones that I have noticed, and I am sure there are others.

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.
