9780340868539: Romanian (Teach Yourself Languages)

Romanian, because of its Latin origin and the fact that it has borrowed words from other Romance languages, will be recognisable to anyone who knows French or Italian. This course introduces both colloquial and written forms of Romanian with the emphasis on learning to use Romanian in a variety of situations. No knowledge of grammatical terminology is assumed but traditional grammatical terms are included for those who are familiar with them. Most of the 2000 words introduced in the course are those frequently used in everyday conversation and many of the vocabulary items are listed in the Romanian-English and English-Romanian vocabularies at the end of the book. The 20 graded units of dialogues, culture notes, grammar and exercises should give you all you need to be able to cope with a whole range of situations and participate fully and confidently in all aspects of Romanian life.
