Newcomer - Hello everyone, I'm new here. Just signed up and I'm still checking out everything on the site. It looks pretty cool and I like the idea that no one is trying to take my money :-).

I currently only know English but I recently became interested in learning a second language. It may sound kind of silly but the reason I decided this was because of the O-Zone song Dragostea din tei. I had heard the english version and went to download it but got the original Romanian version instead. I found that I liked the original version much better than the American remake. I also found that I thought the language sounded very cool.

After thinking about it I realized that I only know how to experience the world using a single language. Everything I do or think is all in english. This made me wonder what it would be like to think and experience life in a different language.

Sorry for the long intro. Anyways, I would love to learn Romanian. So far I don't know anything, other than how to sing along with some of the O-Zone song. Not exactly sure where I should start. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, O-Zone isn't the best Romanian band :P. I personally like 3rei Sud Est much better, plus their lyrics make more sense :P.

La revedere

- Rawkstah, that would be great, I'll be sure to get in touch over AIM - my SN is I Am Corbin 123.

Jeremy, I'll be sure to add you to AIM as well. As far as O-Zone I know they probably arn't the best Romanian band, but it's the only Romanian music I've heard and I enjoy the songs of theirs I have heard. I'd like to check out some other Romanian music though.
