Hi
How does one say
I want to go to Romania?

Romanian translation: I want to go to Romania

Hi,

The translation is: "Vreau să merg în România"

Happy to help!

Hi,

First of all, I find your website very useful to learn Romanian! I have a question, when using verbs in Romanian , why do you write ‘să’ in front of it. Can you explain what it means or when exactly you use it?

The usage of conjuction "să" in Romanian

Hi,

Thank you for your kind words, and I'm really sorry for the late answer. My younger son was not feeling well, and neither am I.

Eu use mainly "să" in Romanian when we one to use one verb after another e.g.
Vreau să beau apă. - I wan to drink water.
Trebuie să plec. - I have to leave.
El știe să citească - He knows how to read.

This is called the subjunctive mode in grammar and it is a bit trickier as sometimes less frequent than not it has a different form in subjunctive than the normal form of the verb
El știe să citească - He knows how to read.
El citește acum - He is reading now
Luckily this exception is made only in the third person, and only for some verbs. Meaning that for the first and second persons the forms of the verbs are the same for the normal/indicative mode and subjunctive. I will need to double check, as it might be that some verbs keep their third person form even for subjunctive.

All the time between two verbs you need to use the subjunctive marker the conjunction "să".
There is a strange grammatically acceptable form: El știe a citi - He knows to read, where "a citi" is the infinitive form. However no Romanian will talk to you like that. This form is more for the books, and it has more a poetical value.

I hope I have answered your question.
I'm happy to help!
If you happen to find any mistakes or have suggestions about the website I'd be happy to hear it, as I'm always trying to improve it.

NEW LESSONS?

I am a Ukrainian trying to learn the language. I have quite enjoyed the lessons here and the transition it has. However, I am curious if there will be further lessons added? like cool slangs that are used in movies and regular conversation? or something more fluid in response. I have learned almost everything here yet I feel quite textbook stationary.

Still, Great work!

Colloquial Romanian lessons

Добрий день,
My Ukrainian is a bit rusty, but still usable :).
First of all congratulations for having started to learn Romanian. It's quite different than Ukrainian, and I'm saying this because it was quite difficult for myself to study Ukrainian.

I put quite a lot of effort in preparing a lesson about slang, with a cool funny movie, but I had to prioritize other work on the website. I could unearth that movie, and prepare the lesson. I'll post here and on facebook when I'll finalize it.

By the way, since you've been using the website a lot, if you happen to have 5 min, I'd be interested in your feedback over the website. Especially what could be improved. I'm now working on a redesign, as the design is quite old, but how about functionalities, anything that you would see important to improve? is it easy to use?

All the best!

Pronunciation

In romanian...how do I say...' shall we go out? Come on

Going out - English - Romanian translation

Hi,

I'm trying to guess what you meant, if I did not get it right, please feel free to let me know, I'll provide you with the right translation.

1) I guess you mean to "go out", as in to go out for dinner, party, somewhere to have fun/recreation/entertainment.
In this case a typical Romanian would say:
Mergem în oraș? - this is more general, it's translated let's go out in the city [center]
Mergem la mall?
Mergem la teatru?

2) if you meant to go outside of some room/place, you should say:
Mergem afară?

In your above text you added "Come on" that is translated in Romanian as "Haide"

Thus the full translation should be:
Hai să mergem în oraș - Come on, let's go out to the city
Hai să ieșim - This is another way of saying the same thing as the above, it's a bit more literary style, but perfectly usable among friends

I hope I answered your question
Happy to help!

Sunt iarasi eu! (I tried to

Sunt iarasi eu! (I tried to say "It's me again!", please let me know if it was right.) I'm Dustin & I finally got around to making an account.
I'm curious, would just "Mergem?" be a decent translation for "Should we go?" or "Are we going to go?"

Hi Dustin,

Hi Dustin,

Welcome back!
Was it difficult to make an account?

Yes, it's correct. A native Romanian would say "Tot eu sunt".
Your sentence "Sunt iarăși eu" is correct qnd everyone can perfectly understand it. You can hear it from Romanian native speakers as well. "Tot eu sunt" is just a bit better.

"Mergem" is a very good translation for "Should we go?"

Happy to help!

Thanks For The Help!

It was not at all difficult. In fact, it was much easier than I expected it to be! Thank you for your help!

"Everyone"

Hey! Me again. I was just curious, how would one say stuff like "everyone goes", "everyone knows", "everyone has"? I'm curious since there's different words for those things depending on who the subject is like "am, are, avem, are, aveți". My assumption would be to default to "you(plural)/aveți/sunteți" but I could be wrong. Sorry if this is worded strangely, I wasn't 100% sure how to word a question like this.

Hi,

Hi,

There are two cases:
1) Everyone is used to talk about any person in a general manner.

Toată lumea merge - everyone goes
Au venit prietenii mei. Toți știu că mă însor. My friends have arrived. Everyone knows that I'm getting married.
Au venit prietenele mele. Toate știu că mă mărit. - My friends have arrived. Everyone knows that I'm getting married.

Oricine are o mașină în zilele noastre. - Everyone has a car nowadays.

Happy to help!
