Romanian grammar

Romanian is a Latin language thus it follows the grammar structure of Latin languages such as Italian, French or Spanish.

We have written several grammar lessons (all freely available):

Our lesson abound in free audio samples of the Romanian words being studied.

Here is a sample: Eu sunt (I am) /jew sunt/.

We are planning to add more Romanian language grammar lessons dealing with:

  • Masculine nouns (how to recognize them and how to guess the plural)
  • Neuter nouns (how to recognize them and how to guess the plural)
  • Romanian articles (definite and indefinite)
  • Romanian pronouns
  • Romanian verbs

Furthermore we'll add exercises for you to practice what you've learned.

Other Romanian grammar highlights: In certain cases the subject can be omitted

It is common, especially in spoken Romanian language, as well as from a grammatical point of view to leave out the subject. Let’s take this example where two friends are discussing:

“Am fost la o petrecere săptămâna trecută, a fost nemaipomenit. Maine seara merg la altă petrecere, mergi?”
“I went to a party last week, it was great. Tomorrow evening, I’m going to another party, are you coming along?”



In the above sentences the subject is missing because it is inferred from the form of the verb. In Romanian when one says “mergi” it can only be “you go” (where you refers to only one person/object, it cannot mean, "I go" or "He goes", because “I go” is "(eu) merg", and "he goes" is "(el) merge".
It is perfectly ok to say “Eu am fost” and to specify explicitly the subject “Eu” (translated as “I”), however in colloquial Romanian the subject tends to be left out.

Hi Amira,

Thank you for your patience.

I've just added the lesson on how to ask a question in Romanian at:
http://www.learnro.com/romanian-interrogatives
In 1-2 days I'll add exercises for you to practice asking questions in Romanian.

I'm now writing a new one on the same subject and then will continue with more lessons on Romanian grammar.

Please let me know if something is not clear in that lesson.

All the best and I hope you will enjoy the lesson.
