Street Conversation XXXVII

I finally had the courage to promote Euforia so I can make more money with Simple Romanian.

 

Sergiu: Care club îți place mai mult? Noa sau Euforia?

Which club do you like more? Noa or Euforia?

Girl: Euforia.

Sergiu: De ce?

Why?

Girl: Că lumea care merge acolo știe să se distreze mai bine și muzica-i mai ok.

Because the people that go there know how to have more fun and the music is better.

Sergiu: Bine, mergem acolo atunci.

Fine, we’ll go there then.

Grammar XXXVII

Ordinal numbers

You should know by now how to say a lot of numbers. However do you know how to say first, second and so on? Today we’ll teach you.

1st – Singular forms: Primul, prima (the first one). Plural forms: primii, primele (the first ones)

2nd – Masculine and feminine forms: Al doilea, a doua

3rd – Al treilea, a treia

4th – Al patrulea, a patra

5th – Al cincilea, a cincea

Nouns

Today we’re also going to learn how to put a definite article on nouns ending in -i and -u.

For the -u nouns we have:

Membru – Membrul

Lucru – Lucrul

Indiciu – Indiciul

Călău – Călăul

We just add another l to the word.

For the plural all you have to do is add -le or -i (if the plural already ends in one single -i but not in -uri).

Membrii, Lucrurile, Indiciile, Călăii

For the few nouns ending in -i, add an -ul for the singular form.

Add a -le if the plural ends in -uri, otherwse use -i.

Sergiu: Ești a treia cea mai frumoasă fată pe care am văzut-o în seara asta.

Kati: Mersi, nu am cuvinte.

Sergiu: Vrei să mergem mai târziu acasă la mine?
