Hi, been doing the Romanian 101 course and ran into a few problems, some confirmed during a recent trip to Moldova and I’ve run them through Google Translate and a couple of online Romanian–>English translators to check.
“Pa” is bye, not goodbye. “La revedere” is goodbye and used most often.
“Bine” is well (as in “I am well”), not good. “Bun” is good.
Apparently, you should use the form “Va rog” for “please” when meeting people you don’t know or you wish to show respect to (teachers, doctors etc). “Te rog” is too familiar.
You use “Pot” for “I can” and “can I?”, when neither is right. “Eu pot” or “Pot sa”, apparently.
I need" is wrong
"I go" is wrong…
Given that I’m only 60-odd words in, this is pretty poor and I don’t have confidence that what I am learning is correct. I was thinking of going Pro, but if you can’t get the basics right, I’m not wasting money on the advanced stuff.
