Includes 16 lessons on 8 CDs

Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program.

This course includes Lessons 1-16 from the Romanian Level 1 Program - 8 hours of audio-only effective language learning with real-life spoken practice sessions. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons is included in each lesson. Topics include: greetings, numbers, meals, shopping, telling time, scheduling activities, and asking and giving directions. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Romanian.

Reading instruction begins in Lesson 11 to provide you with an introduction to reading Romanian. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet PDF must be downloaded.

The Romanian Language
Romanian is spoken by about 22 million people in Romania, where it is the official language, by 3 million people in Moldova (where it's called Moldovan), and by around 1 million scattered in Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Hungary, and Serbia. Pimsleur teaches the Daco-Romanian dialect spoken in both Romania and Moldova.

Comments about Romanian, Conversational:

I had some business negotiations in Romania earlier this year and jumped on the Pimsleur CD's that were on sale at big name bookseller for like $20.

Spent the next week listening in the car every where I went. About a 1/3 of the way through, I was so used the "repeat after me" that I found myself accidentally speaking Romanian! It just works it's way into your brain.

Was it fun? Not really 'fun', you had to work at, sometimes I'd rather listen to music but made myself play the tapes. Let's just say... there was no pain involved!!

A+ product for learning to SPEAK Romanian. Hmmm... signs I had to do a bit of asking questions because this is not a READING or WRITING instruction. But...

Do your homework with this method, 30 minutes a day (I'd do 60 minutes most days) and you WILL learn to SPEAK another language.

Comments about Romanian, Conversational:

I studied the first 25 lessons before I went to Romania. I had a number of friends in Romania and I stayed with them on my visit. It was a fantastic experience. This course was very helpful in that it helped me break the ice. My friends were delighted to hear me speak (or try to speak) their language. It helped make my vacation one of the best (if not the best) I had ever experienced. Hearing how the language is actually pronounce was a tremendous advantage. I would say that not seeing how that language was written earlier in the course was a hindrance. But, overall, I was very glad that I used Pimsleur.
