Recommendations for the new members:
I’m giving you some hints to find more easily what you are looking for. I’m sure you can see the point.

1. Go to the “Index of Romanian” thread. You’ll find there the most important subjects(not all yet - under construction)

2. Post an announcement in the topic "Post here to find an exchange language partner" or go to the main page to look for Romanian exchange language partners.

3. Tell us something, say anything about you in the topic “Introduce yourself”, in Romanian or English, as your wish.

4. Tell us what you need for learning Romanian in the topic “Share ideas, ask what you need”. Your ideas are welcome!


Enjoy the forum, play the games, go to the section “words” and “phrases” and don’t think of making mistakes. We are all there to learn.

Success!

Just a few recommendations!

1. Feel free to ask any question if something is not clear in Grammar Lesson

2. Play Dominick's games. The repetition would be the key to fix your knowledge.

3. In order to make yourself understood by everyone,
translate in English what you write, please. You also can write in your native or any other language, but the common language is English!

Ok I already did my first mistake (with/by?) writing my 1st post in my native language:french!:( (if making mistakes is a way to learn, so I'm learning hard!lol).

Well, I'm not very good at english but my introduction message was: "I'm learning romanian for about 1 months and I think that your interesting site is going to help me.
Few friends lived or are living in romania and Moldova (Ploiesti, Valea, bucuresti, Oltenita; Chisinau) and made me want to know more about Romanian language ( a very beautiful one really!) and romanian's locutor's way of life (Romania, Moldova). Thank you very much for the help this site provides!"

Dear Dany,

Welcome to the forum! Don't worry about posting in French. ;) If I knew French I'd gladly respond but sadly it is not one of my best languages. I hope you find the forum helpful!

Dear Dany,

Despite what you say, your English is very good! There were only a few mistakes and mostly I was being picky. :p In reality I could understand everything you said except for the phrase I underlined at the end. Here are some quick things to remember that were the main mistakes you made.

- Always capitalize the names of languages, countries, and cities. (Example: English, France, Bucharest)
- When there is only one of something it's singular. (Example: one dog, two dogs, one month)
- In English we never put a word with 's attached to it right after a word with 's attached to it. (Example: the smart boy's dog NOT the smart's boy's dog)
- The last thing I saw was your sentence that began with "Few friends..." made sense but it sounded really odd so I changed it to how an English speaker would say it. Also locutor isn't a word in English. :) Can you think or another word that expresses what you meant?

That's all Dany I hope you become as good with Romanian as you are with English.

Kenny

Thank you so much Kenny for the advises! ;)
Merci Kenny pour les conseils!

That's great, I can learn Romanian and English at the same time!
C'est super, je peux apprendre le Roumain et l'Anglais en mĂŞme temps!

By saying "Romanian's locutors" I mean people who speaks Romanian (the French word is "locuteurs" I think).
Quand je dis "Romanian's locutors" je veux dire, les gens qui parlent Roumain (le mot français est "locuteur" je crois).

Thank you everyboby for your friendly advises and (welcome?).
Merci Ă  tous pour les conseils amicaux et l'accueil chaleureux.

Now, I have to learn more Romanian words and phrases and I'll be back soon to try to speak this language with you.
Maintenant, je dois apprendre plus de mots et de phrases en Roumain et je reviendrai bientĂ´t pour essayer de parler dans cette langue avec vous.

No problem Dany! We hope to hear from you soon!

P.S. Your English is getting better I only saw two problems this time.

- "Advice" is never plural in English. (Examples: I gave you advice. I gave you a lot of advice. He advises you. I advise you.)
- People is a plural noun. (Example: The person speaks Romanian. The people speak Romanian.)

Salut Dany,

Welcome to phrasebase and the romanian forum. Hope you fine the forum useful for your needs.

If you need to "cheat" with communicating in english at all, I find that google translator works quite well. I've sent a few emails to a french speaking colleague of mine, there was only a couple times it was incorrect. Hope it helps!

Hi Mike!

Hey I've just realized you said "salut!" (it's a French word! OK I know it's also a Romanian one). It's always cool to "hear" foreign people speaking few words in your language! (When I was in China all people in the bloc we were living in, could say: "Salut!" :) so nice!)

Well, Thanks for the advise of using Google translation but I prefer to make my own mistakes. I noticed that when I translated a Romanian text in French, it was a disaster, so I better try to write without it.

I'm still learning Romanian for beginner but I'm not ready to speak yet (even a few word). Patience (the structure of the sentences is not that easy)

Question for moderators:
Lina was planning a Romanian classroom but what level is it going to be? because all Romanian members seem to be confortable enough with this language but for my part I'm not able to make a simple sentence.

Thanks and see you soon everybody!

Yours

Bună Dany,

It is good that you choose to make mistakes. "You learn by your mistakes" as the saying goes.

Regarding the classroom, I'm quite sure it will designed at a beginner level perfect for your level. But Lina will have to confirm.

If you want, I suggest playing some of the easier games,the alphabet game, plurals, etc. (Ie, the games where u have to write only 1 word). Then ease yourself into some of the other games. That's what I did anyway.

Pa,
Mike

Salut Dany! Je crois que ce message est le meilleur encore! ;)
Hello Dany! I think that this message is the best yet!

Please excuse my horrible French. Like you I prefer to make mistakes and that sentence probably had some. (I also agree that Romanian sentence structure is weird :p)

I'm not sure about the classes. But like Mike I think they will be at a beginner level. I certainly hope so myself because I don't think I'm that good at Romanian either. ;)

I only saw three real mistakes with your English. This post made perfect sense and I can tell your English is getting better!

- The word "a" usually comes before the word "few" except in some cases even if the word after few is plural. (Examples: a few words, a few things)
- People live on a street not in it. Using in makes it sound like the people lived inside the concrete of the street.
- The last thing is you misspelled block. Not really a major mistake.

Sincerely,

Kenny
