Free Online Romanian Language Lessons / Courses

Our Romanian language courses are structured in four categories on the basis of your Romanian language skills: A0:Essential Romanian(24h), A1:Elementary Romanian for beginners, Intermediate and Advanced.

If you do not know in which category you fit, you can take the Romanian language skills test or start directly with the absolute beginner level: A0. Essential Romanian 24 hour course.
We find the pronunciation a very important topic this is why we've build Romanian classes specialized in pronunciation.

Independently of your level, you will need some tools and an approach to studying Romanian. This is why we have prepared a short tutorial on How to learn Romanian for free.

Our approach is to provide for a better and more intuitive way of learning Romanian than the traditional language study books. We believe that Romanian can be better learned through real life situations and by using free audio and video materials.

Romanian Pronunciation

Romanian pronunciation

In each and every lesson on our website you will find free audio samples of the words/sentences you are studying.
However this course on pronunciation is a dedicated one, explaining the pronunciation rules, and grouping similar phonetic Romanian words.

Those familiar with the International Phonetics Alphabet (IPA) notation will be happy to find each Romanian word in all our lessons transcribed into the IPA style. If you are not familiar with IPA, you can just ignore the "funny characters" and listen to the free Romanian audio samples.

Three comprehensive Romanian classes are available:

Romanian Grammar

Romanian grammar lessons

The Romanian Grammar online course explains the rules governing the grammar as well as providing many examples and exercises.
Even if you, like most people, are not a big fan of grammar, the course helps you understand why certain grammatical constructions are as they are.
We're ready and happy to help should you have questions or need more assistance. Just drop us a comment at the bottom of the lesson that you find difficult.

Currently the following lessons are ready. We are working on more (to be made available soon):

All about Romania (e.g. traveling and living)

House of People Bucharest Romania and Romanian flag

To learn better Romanian you must know a few things about the country and its people. Moreover if you can settle in Romania, you will be more exposed and immersed in the Romanian culture and language which will boost your Romanian language skills.

This is why we have created a few lessons (most of them following your requests) to help and guide you while traveling through Romania or trying to find a job or a place to stay.
We're planning to add a few more lessons about the Romanian traditions (e.g. cultural, religious, gastronomic).


Online Romanian language degree


I've been trying to understand whether there are any tests for Romanian such as the Cambridge, Toefl or IELTS for English. Any help would be appreciated.

Online Degree

I've been asked this question in the past, and I remember that the answer was that there isn't a standardized test that can be taken online. I have verified one more time, and I'm afraid that answer is still valid that there isn't one.

There are tests though by universities, but there isn't this concept of accredited college/companies/institutes, since there is no standardized test.

The offers tests of Romanian based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, at all levels A1,A2,B1,B2,C1 and C2.

Intermediate lessons


At the top of the page it says you have beginner, intermediate, and advanced lessons but I can't seem to get to the intermediate or advanced lessons so the link might be broken?

Intermediate and advanced Romanian lessons

Thank you for your comment,
The site has separate and dedicated lessons for vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar.
There are already intermediate lessons for pronunciation:
Pronunciation of i in Romanian
Romanian vowels (combined) pronunciation
and grammar:
Romanian noun gender and number
How to ask a question in Romanian

For the advanced level I wrote the following grammar lesson:
How to ask complicated questions in Romanian

I haven't had the time to group them on levels yet, and I'm

With regards to the vocabulary lessons, the Romanian Love lessons:
Romanian love phrases
is actually an intermediary-advanced one

I haven't had the time to create the Intermediate and Advanced levels as containers, but there are already lessons at that level. I'm also planning to add more vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar lessons. I hope to release them soon. And then I'll certainly create the page that groups all the lessons of these levels.

I hope this answers your question.

Thanks a lot for these lessons, I have been looking for a while for a website to learn Romanian but at least for the basic level this is the best one i have found! I hope you continue to update the website with the other levels. My goal is to learn up to B1 level until the end of March, when I will leave Bucharest.

Best regards,


More Romanian lessons

Thank you Felipe,

I'm trying for some time now to improve some features of the site. This meant I had less time to invest in new lessons. I had a feeling that the current lessons are not good enough and I was trying to make the next ones better (with more interactive content). This is quite an undertaken for my little free time. I might just pause these improvements, so that I can create more lessons.

Great exercises

Thanks for creating these exercises. Better than Duolingo:
The voice is human and Romanian.
I like the way the corrections are given at the end. If there are multiple mistakes you have to retype each correction.
I also like the way the accent is in bold.

Thank you very much

I appreciate your kind words. It means a lot to me, as I'm alone in maintaining this site, in my spare time, in several languages by the way, French, Dutch, Spanish, German and Portuguese.

I like Duolingo, and I'm using it for learning other languages, however, I feel that one cannot learn a language without knowing the culture of that country, without hearing an actual person speaking, interacting, moving their hands, this is why I added the actual scenes from movies. What do you think about that? Is it interesting?
I'm also using pictures from Romania in most of the lessons as the main picture of the lesson.
In the

I'd love to add much more such as:
- a lesson on the actual districts in Romania with a map, to teach you their names
- a lesson on the Romanian names
- more lessons on the Romanian traditions, I've started a bit but it's quite some work to gather all the materials, one day I'll make it
For example
This is a page that I've been working for some years, but I haven't managed to add that much lately
-I'd like to add a function whereby once you finalize one set of exercise you would see a piece of a Romanian picture, and you would need to continue to discover the rest
- I'd like to add another function for the ones that finalize all exercises of a level to be able to write a paragraph in Romanian that I would correct, thus correction by a real person with explanations if needed... Actually I used to ran an poll to ask visitors to give me some feedback

Is there anything that you did not like? I'm very interested in this part as well, as maybe there are some quick wins where I could improve, both in the functionalities or in the lessons... something that does not work properly or that is missing. I'd be really happy to hear about it.

Sorry for the long answer, I'm sometimes too enthusiastic :) but always happy to help someone to learn Romanian.

Thanks for the reply. Those

Thanks for the reply. Those all sound like good ideas. Yes, scenes from movies are good, but Romanian subtitles would help too.

The other thing I would prefer is that your audio examples of phrases and sentences were more natural sounding, without pauses between each word.

e.g. your recordings for 'Bună ziua, aș dori să fac o rezervare.' or 'Aș dori sarmale cu mămăliguță' are very clear, but don't sound natural. I'd like to get a better sense of Romanian sentence intonation and rhythm. Perhaps the sentences could be recorded twice? once slow, then natural.

Best wishes, :)

One more time thank you for your Feedback

It's a good idea the Romanian subtitles.

For the recordings I agree with you the pauses between the words are a bit un-natural and the pronunciation is especially exaggerated as opposed to the natural native speakers pronunciation, however I find it better this way for learning a new language. Otherwise, from hearing two Romanian native speakers talking it would be complicated to learn from that. The pauses between the words are done on purpose, otherwise in certain sentences when the words are pronounced in a sentence one may not understand precisely where he pronunciation of an word is ending and when the other one starts.

At the end of the day it's also linked with the student's Romanian level, if they are at the very beginning, the this breaking-down of the sentence even a bit forced with a bit unnatural pronunciation of a sentence would be helpful, whereas for a bit more advanced students, this would be annoying. Two speeds would help indeed.

My plan was to add scenes from movies, where you hear the native speakers pronunciation, and also see the scenes and understand better the gestures, the mimics, the tone of real native speakers voice. Like the last Romanian movie clip in this Romanian lesson:

A student using a computer I've added the option to slow the movie down so that you can hear the pronunciation better. On mobile phone it was not possible at that time.

And this is how I was planning to mix the two, the native speaker sentences and the more Romanian teacher special pronunciation for the Romanian students. I recall my Dutch teacher repeating twenty times a pronunciation of two vowels, I think that is quite important.

I'm happy to hear your views or other views, as I'm not pretending that I know everything, I'm just explaining the way I see things, and definitely more ideas and opinions would help me shape and customize the site to the students' needs.

Happy to help

Thanks for the quick response

Thanks for the quick response. Yes, it makes sense for beginners as you say.
Perhaps when you do the intermediate level section you could speak at a more natural tempo.
Another suggestion, if I may :), is to make it easier to login to my user account. There isn't an obvious link anywhere on the home page. And when I responded to your first reply, there was no way to login. Now I've found so I'll use that in future.
Best wishes.

I'm really happy with your

I'm really happy with your feedback, there are sometimes important improvements with little effort.

For the login, indeed it's the link is that you found as well.

I thought it was easy to find with the little white icon, shaped like a little person, that I placed at the top of each page. The only place where that icon is missing is on the front page, I'll add it there as well. If you had other difficulties I'll be happy to learn it, so that I can correct it.

It is obvious that the site needs an better look and feel, an new more modern UI, but now I'm concentrated on the content, rechecking the pages, to mistakes, for making easy to take the exercises e.g. breaking down bigger sentences in smaller parts...

Happy to help
P.S. Today I'm off, kids are playing outside, and I have a little time for myself, for my passion to help others learn Romanian for free!

I have added that little

I have added that little white person on top of the front page as well. I hope this helps.

Great. Thanks for your good work! :)


I've been looking through and completing lessons however I haven't seen a lesson for learning the romanian alphabet yet.. Is there a lesson for this?

Romanian alphabet


The Romanian alphabet is covered in the pronunciation section:
you will find there the pronunciation of all the vowels, and some more special lessons on the pronunciation of "i" or "r". There are the consonants still to be added indeed.

Or maybe you meant something else?
