Lesson 9 – Languages

learn romanian
This is how learning Romanian feels like.

Street Conversation IX

Since my favorite topic came along, I decided to brag about the languages I can speak.


Sergiu: Ce limbi vorbeşti?

What languages do you speak?

Girl: Engleză, spaniolă şi franceză.

English, Spanish and French.

Sergiu: Eu vorbesc română, engleză şi suedeză.

I speak Romanian, English and Swedish.

Today we will learn the verbs to speak and to listen. Listening and speaking are two important elements to learning a language along with writing and reading.

Dialogue IX


Sergiu: Vorbești română?

Do you speak Romanian?

Daniela: Vorbesc puțin. Tu vorbești engleză?

I speak a little. Do you speak English?

Sergiu: Engleză? Nu o vorbesc.

English? I don’t speak it.

As you already know „o” means her, we use her here because a language is feminine.
