Lesson 13 – Food

learn romanian
No, thanks. Just give’em to me cooked!

Street Conversation XIII

Right before going home, I asked someone what she wants to eat, and then I bought the food, cooked it for her and returned to the same street. Needless to say, she was gone.

Sergiu: Ce vreţi să mâncaţi?

What do you want to eat?

Girl: Mâncare mexicană.

Mexican food.

Sergiu: Ok. Aşteptaţi un moment.

Ok. Wait one moment.

Grammar XIII


We know that mâncare means “food”, the word actually comes from a mânca which means “to eat”. We will have a look at this one today and then we will also conjugate the word “to wait”, a aștepta, since you’ll have to wait until your mâncarea (the food) is cooked.

Mănânc I eat
Mănânci You eat
Mănâncă He, she eats
Mâncăm We eat
Mâncați You eat
Mănâncă They eat
Aștept I wait
Aștepți You wait
Așteaptă He, she waits
Așteptăm We wait
Așteptați You wait
Așteaptă They wait

      1. Sometimes I confuse the singular and plural for masculine, feminine and neuter nouns, but I understood. Thanks!
