I already have a request from a user who wants to learn Romanian. I hope there may be another users eager to learn a new language. So I'll start with the basics: Pronounciation. Sounds in Romanian very rarely differ between words (i.e. the letter e is always pronounced the same, unlike in English). Let's see the vowels first: A - pronounced as o in English word son E - pronounced as e in English word set I - pronounced as y in English word party O - pronounced as o in English word not U - pronounced as ou in English word you A - pronounced as er in English word better Â,Î - pronounced as i in English word girl C - as c in copy CI - as chi in chief CE - as che in chest CHI - as the word key CHE - as che in chemistry G - as g in girl GE - as ge in gender GI - as gi in ginger GHE - as ge in together GHI - as gee in geese J - as ge in garage S - as s in sugar T - as ts in its

That is pretty cool! My oldest sisters boyfriend moved here from Romania quiet a few years ago and now my sister is slowly starting to learn phrases and words in Romanian. It is an interesting language!

Nice! Maybe she will want to learn Romanian to surprise her boyfriend. How about one day, she will be able to tell him what she feels in Romanian? I'll do my best to help her if she wants to. Hey, and welcome to myLot!
