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.

Format: Paperback
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.

The highlights include:
Quite a lot of coverage
Verb and dictionary sections

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

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.
