    Salut!
    My name is Krisztian from Hungary.So, I need a second learnt language next to the English.My family is from Romania, since my father, our family haven't lived there, but my grandfather was romanian.Lot of my relatives speak romanian but a don't, and I begrudge they this. Another reason of me is, that at home I have a romanian TV channel with lot of romanian clips and can understand nothing, but sounds lovely for me...Fortunately near to me, there are a lot of native speakers, so I already have an area to prove it.And somewhere I have a Romanian language book for starters.

    I know that in this language there are many many slavic words...I learnt crotian for 8 years at the elementary school.Unfortunately I didn't success in crotian, but it caused a minimal slavic word base, what I have found to be in the romanian too.

    So my questions are:
    -How difficult is the Romanian for a hungarian from zero level? (Spoken languages are just, the Hungarian and the English)
    -Where shall I start it? (Free online courses, sites etc.)
    -How much time does it usually need for somebody to get to comparetive level?

    Thx, for al answers.

    Best wishes!

    Just for what it's worth, I thought I would mention that a short article/blogpost appeared in last week's Huffington Post site, titled "Romania Off the Beaten Track."

    Here's the URL:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jeanin...=false#s540217

    I liked the article but I have to say I loved the comments even more (and yes, especially the minor grammar and punctuation errors, which remind me not only of my own struggles to learn Romanian but also are nearly identical to those in the messages and emails I receive from my online Romanian friends over there all the time, making little tears of joy in my eyes as I read these comments and thought of them and their enthusiam and sincerity and friendly warmth), most from actual Romanians and demonstrating their incomparable passion for their beautiful amazing country, fantastic!

    An Nou Fericit to all!

    I learned romanian for 2 years and still am learning but had and have not enough lesson hours. Any way I think I have some good basis. But for a hungarian might be a little harder, because your language is alone in his group, there is no alike and english is much simpler in many ways then any balkan language including romanian. Also I have learned german so after it everything else seems easy However I think romanian is pretty hard too especially for non-balkan people or for people who are not well with the closest to it latin languages - italian and may be french.
    Surely the best way to learn a language is with a private teacher or in a course. If this is not possible for you now you could try in this threads here about learning romanian or here to learn some basic words and the pronunciation. As you have relatives who know the language you could also try learning with them. Those combinations, knowing a bit of croatian and listening to the romanian tv will help too but only so far that you would have an idea of the language and if you are very studious you even could be able to freely speak in simple conversations.
    Any way you choose means a lot of hard work, so I wish you good luck, and may be you could be one of those people who learned languages outstanding all by them selves

    Guess what? I'm not exactly sure how to say "Guess what" in Romanian.

    Is it "ghici ce"? (doar o presupunere, desigur)

    Thanks.

    I'd be grateful if someone could give me a hint on how to pronounce the following letters:
    ă .

    Is it true that and are used to describe the same sound???

    If you could refer to other languages in your examples (if possible) that would be great! Mulţumesc!

    OK now, perhaps this is not a question you should ask when you start learning a language but I'm really VERY curious about it. So allow me to pose it in hope someone would be kind enough to explain it to me and other members:

    There are at least two words in Romanian that translate to "love", namely iubesc and dragoste - could you tell what the difference between them is?
    When you say "I love you" you use "Te iubesc".
    Is there a similar verb derived from dragoste (Eg. dragostear, dragostere, a dragosta or sth)????

    Thanks a lot for any info!

    this is a hard and tricky one paul! is like in spanish: querer y amar amar stands for - a fi indragostit ( there's no vb for "dragoste" so we have to use "to be inloved") - which is used between lovers, it's more about romanticism, passion etc while querer stands for - a iubi which is used to express the love for friends, family, etc..

    in daily use one doesn't think too much about their deeper meanings... they are just synonims that can be replaced easily.

    I am almost one and a half years in this country and I am definitely feeling like I am just about to give up on learning romanian. i had few weeks of class, and i think i reached something to do with intermediate. I have since made little progress with a lot of difficulty. I can read articles, understand sometimes everything that people say, but I can't do spontaneous responses. It's just horrible feeling stuck like this. So I have learned to quickly ask people " vorbesti englez?" before going on with what I want to say. Maybe this thread will have some useful tips. I will try to go through. But I definitely think I am dropping it.

    I think you should start by meeting with someone who knows romanian so he can correct you and guide you in the right direction. Good day and good luck!
