A0.6 How to say I come from in Romanian
While introducing yourself, it is expected that you will be asked where you are coming from. In this lesson we will teach you how to reply to that question in Romanian.
At the end of this lesson you will be able to:
- say "I come from" + some example countries
- say "I'm an American, Englishman, Scottish, Welsh, Australian, New Zeelander" (as well as other nationalities)
How to ask in Romanian "Where do you come from?"
Where do you come from? (informal)
De unde vii?
|/de 'un.de vij/|
Where do you come from? (formal)
De unde veniți?
|/de 'un.de ve'ni.ʦʲ/|
In Romanian the subject can be omitted, because in most cases it can be infered from the unique form of the verb the person and number of the subject.
E.g. De unde vii? - is the same as De unde vii tu?
there is no need to specify the subject tu , because the form of the verb vii is unique and specific only for the subject tu.
How to say "I come from" + your country, in Romanian?
I'm from Canada
Sunt din Canada
|/sunt din ka'na.da/|
I'm canadian (man)
I'm canadian (woman)
To vary the country and say that you come from your own country, you only need to say, as above: "Sunt din" (I come from) and then replace "Statele Unite" with the name of your country in Romanian. Thus to say "I come from Australia" you will say in Romanian: "Sunt din Australia". Similarly if you are coming from England, Scotland or Wales you will say "Sunt din Anglia" or "Sunt din Scoția".
The same goes for saying that you are an Australian man, or a New Zeeland woman, using the above example, one would say: "Sunt" (I am) fowllowed by "australian" for a man or "neozeelandeză" for a women, reaching the sentence: "Sunt australian" or "Sunt neozeelandeză".

I find your website really useful especially as I have been able to begin with 'to be' and 'to have' which I consider the best way to begin learning a language. I had a look at the how to say where you are from page - I've lived in Romania for six year so I really already know this - and really feel the need to point out that Britain, the United Kingdom whatever you want to call it is NOT England! I am from Scotland and would want to say 'I'm Scottish/British' or 'I am from Scotland/the UK'. Nobody in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland would ever say they are from England or that they are English!
This is not peculiar to you - it is a mistake everybody who is not British makes!
I come from Scotland, Wales or England in Romanian
Thank you for your message. I would like to apologies for this mistake. You are very much right and I respect the local identities and nationalities.
I have already added the Romanian pronunciation for Scotland and Scottish.
I'm planning to add the equivalent for Wales: e.g. I come from Wales, and correct the flag of England.
Many thanks for your remark
P.S. Luckily that I had foreseen more recordings, because new recordings take quite a long time to arrive

Va rog! What is the Romanian for "New Zealand" and "New Zealander" and "What is the Romanian for ... "
How to say in Romanian "I come from New Zealand"
Of course New Zealand should have been in the list, sorry for that.
The translation of "I come from New Zealand" in Romanian is "Eu vin din Noua Zeelandă".
"I'm a New Zealander" for a man would be "Eu sunt neozeelandez" and a woman should say "Eu sunt neozeelandeză"
For your last question on how to say "What is Romanian for ... " I would advise you to use "Cum se spune în româneşte la...?"
This is presented with the audio pronunciation in the previous lesson A0.3 I speak little Romanian"
I'll do my best to post in a few days the audio pronunciation for the above sentences and integrate them in the lesson.
