have a question

i am from srilanka. iam learning romanian language without helping. now i learn it helping your website. thank you very much for it. it is clear. but i have a problem. in learning english language,there is a equation. it is clear where the subject ,verb and others ,place to them. but i cant understand it in romanian language. please explain it.

Romanian sentence structure

Welcome back Kellapatha,
I'm happy that you are committed to learning Romanian.

The Romanian sentences follow a similar structure with the English sentences: Subject + verb + complement/object.
E.g. Eu am o carte - I have a book

Romanian has a particularity that especially in informal communications, the subject can be omitted, thus you can perfectly say : "Am o carte" which is literally translated "have a book".
This is possible in Romanian because the forms of the same verb are different, and this form of the Romanian verb "am" can only be used with "Eu" as in "Eu am" - I have.
One cannot say "Tu am" because "tu" means "you" and then for you the Romanian verb has a different form "Tu ai".

To understand better the unique form of Romanian verb conjuhations you can check our lessons on Romanian verbs at:
https://www.learnro.com/be-have-conjugated-romanian
https://www.learnro.com/common-romanian-verbs

If you have a particular example, or if I haven't fully answered your question, just let me know, I'm happy to clarify it.

Happy to help!

Start Learning button
it was easy for you to find the "Start Learning" button Yes
you have used the "Start learning" button. Yes
Videos
The videos in the lessons, are they useful for you? Yes because it gives me an idea of the actual speed and pronunciation that will be used in day to day conversations.
Does it help you learn easier? Yes
Would you like to see videos in each lesson? Yes! Please! It also gives me a glimpse into the Romanian culture through film and I can look them up later to watch.
Did you have any problems in using the site? something that was not working? annoying scrolling? No problems! This is a wonderful site I would recommend to anyone looking to learn Romanian
Any other thoughts? something missing? improvements
This site is wonderful because it allows you to hear the language from a native speaker and practice what you have learned at each level. It is very organized and easy to access. My only suggestion would be having a video of someone pronouncing the words. There are certain letters and sounds that are not in the English language like in the words maine, caine and paine. Watching how someone moves their mouth to form these certain sounds would be a great help! But overall this is a fantastic site! Thank you so much for your help! I have been to Romania three time on missions trips and I am hoping to go back next time without too much help from a translator!

Feedback on the Romanian language site

Thank you very much, I appreciate your feedback.

Indeed that is the purpose of the Romanian movie clips to allow you to get in contact with the language spoken naturally in a given context, and also at the same time to expose you to the Romanian culture. Most of the language learning fail at this second part. Ideally one day I will write lessons about the Romanian traditions including the specific Romanian vocabulary. I have actually started some pages on this topic.

I'll add more videos, it's just that it's time consuming to find the good scenes, that are relevant for a particular lesson. However your feedback is very useful, and I will certainly try to prioritize this part of adding more videos, including for the proper pronunciation and the movement of the mouth and lips. I guess you mean clips similar with the ones that are available for this lesson: https://www.learnro.com/pronounce-r-romanian

Happy to help!

Amazing website

1. I personally haven't seen the start learning button, but I found this website through a general Google search that took me to the middle of the first module. In general the experience with navigating this website has been good! No problems, very straight forward.
2. I haven't watched any of the videos as I typically read faster than videos play, I find rereading content and listening to the audio clips great, so I haven't felt like I've been missing out.
3. No issues so far
4. Absolutely love this website, I've been on the hunt for more learning resources for Romanian and this has been great. Love the simple, straight to the point information and the enunciation bolded in the words.

Thank you for the feedback,

Thank you for the feedback, much appreciated.

Start Learning button
it was easy for you to find the "Start Learning" button - Yes, very easy to find and it all flows through very well to each part of the exercises
you have used the "Start learning" button. - Yes
Videos
The videos in the lessons, are they useful for you? Yes, very useful
Does it help you learn easier? - Yes, to hear and see the language being spoken is very helpful
Would you like to see videos in each lesson? - Yes, please
Did you have any problems in using the site? something that was not working? annoying scrolling? - Some audios are not working and some are and I don't think this is an issue with my browser etc because otherwise they all would not play? The play button hangs down and stays red and that is it. Otherwise the site is excellent, so easy to use and a really excellent way of teaching. I am learning so much better on here than on Duolingo.
Any other thoughts? something missing? improvements - Really grateful for this wonderful resource to learn Romanian, thank you so much.

Many thanks Vix for your feedback on learning Romanian

I appreciate your feedback, many thanks for taking the time. This will help me build a better site and content.

I'm happy that you found the start button easily and that you like the lessons and the videos.
I will check the play button. If you happen to remember which one in particular did not work, or you might come across it in the future, I would be grateful if you could just drop me a comment on that particular page, and I'll check it out.

I am certainly biased, but I like to learn more from resources that are tailored to that particular language, with pictures from that country, with videos. The Romanian language, actually any language, in my view, should be thought together with the Romanian culture, and this is what I'm trying to do hear with this website with pictures form Romania and videos from Romania.

Happy to help!

Cu mare placere si multumesc

(I wish I could type the diacritics on my keyboard!)

Thank you very much for your response. I really love your website and the way you teach and all the resources and cultural information. I love the Romanian language, it is so beautiful and melodious. I have friends in Romania and plan to visit this year or next year. They speak very good English but in addition to having a father who does not speak English at all and I want to speak to him, I want to show my respect by speaking in Romanian when I can. I particularly loved the Sarut Mana and want to say this to my friends' lovely father. Your site is wonderfully helpful and I agree that the cultural information helps with learning the language as well as being very interesting. I am always asking my friends about Romania. Oh, and I also have 4 Romanian street dogs who are very wonderful!

I have found a lot of the audios that do not play but some do on the same section so I don't think it is me. I will go to each one and comment on the page, thank you very much. I am on a Mac computer but have tried different browsers and a Windows computer and my iPhone and the same ones do not play on each.

Very best wishes,
Vix
