Learn Romanian Now!

Welcome to Simple Romanian!

We’ve created this website in Cluj-Napoca, the capital of Transylvania. This means you will hear a lot of conversation spoken in vampire dialect.

We consider that the best way to learn Romanian is through constant exposure and natural conversations held with natives.

So, what makes the content from this website different is that we promote authentic language taken directly from the streets. The lessons are short and sweet and you can hear the language being pronounced in normal conversations. You can learn Romanian by listening to isolated words as well as we provide audio for everything written in the language.

Take a look at the video below to learn your first few words in Romanian in a natural way:

Did you watch the video? Great!

Now just click on any lesson, to get  yourself started. We prefer that you take them one at a time, in the order they were written. Once you read our lessons you can also interact with us and let us know how you improved your Romanian with us, or what you want to learn that we didn’t cover. Every lesson here is free!

Happy language learning!

  1. Hello! Thanks for the nice site. The Romanian is pretty easy but I can see you have put a lot of effort into it. I voted “I want to live in the country” and was surprised to see it was the most popular answer. I came here from InterPals where I saw your link in the Forums. I am an EU citizen, so I hope living in Romania won’t be too difficult visa-wise. But I have to earn some more money before I can even consider making the move. Maybe a few of the warmer months in Romania would be enough. Keep up the good work!

  2. Excellent site!! These lessons have given me more confidence in reading and writing Romanian. Keep up the good work!

  3. You should also mention that YouTube and iTunes are two the fastest, if not more efficient, way to learn a foreign language. Just a little something I picked up from the Chicago Tribune. Take me, for instance, I do have some proficiency in Romanian, thanks to the YouTube message boards, along with my two-year Associate’s Degree in Spanish. So not only has my college education paid off, I really have been having a BLAST learning about my heritage (regardless of what language it’s presented in) 🙂

    1. matei is the name of the girl dan balan is longing for in the o – zone song oriude ai fi (wherever you are)…oriunde ai fi eu te voi găși oriunde tu ai fi eu te voi iubi…(wherever you are i will find you wherever you are i will love you!!!it worths to listen to it and the lyrics are substitled in both langages english and romanian!!! this is one of my favorite romanian song!!!and as it is said previously listening to songs is a very good tip to learn better and faster a foreign langage!!!

  4. Mon père était roumain, mais je n’ai jamais appris sa langue. Maintenant, après avoir appris plein d’autres langues, j’aimerais avoir les bases du roumain. Apparemment je comprends déjà beaucoup quand je lis, mais la prononciation est plus compliquée pour moi.

  5. I´ve just found this site and, by skimming over some lessons, I´ve already realized it´s both very effective and pleasant to learn with!
    I would also like to especially thank you for the free stuff, something crucial for those of us who can´t afford any more expenses in their budget.
    Congratulations as well for using English as the means to teach it, as in this way you will reach many more people around the world, helping to divulge your language and its ancient culture in a much broader extent.
    If you allow me, I would just like to suggest that the new words in the dialogues be pronounced slowly at first and, if possible, twice (having the new words showing onscreen while doing it would also be advised, so the learner can associate the pronunciation with the spelling). This way the usual shock caused by the exposition to that fast speed of the daily language will be much lessened. Besides, the very fact that the wonderful region of Transylvania has its own dialect of Romanian may be somewhat more difficult for a beginner, even if these differences don´t seem too hard for Romanians themselves.
    I´ve mentioned all this cause this first shock learners get when they first listen to native speakers is actually one of the main reasons many end up giving up studying a language, as they get the impression they will never be able to pull it off understanding it when spoken in a natural, daily context.
    Thanks for your excellent site!
