Street Conversation XLVIII

Never thought I would be speaking about this topic before. Nope. Never in my life. But here it is….Here we are…….

Also, lesson 48 marks the day you learn the word for” Simple” so now you can finally say “Simple Romanian” in Romanian!

Sergiu: Care sunt cele mai sexy haine pe care le-ai purtat pe stradă?

What are the sexiest clothes that you wore on the street?

Girl: Woah, ă, nu știu, o rochie foarte scurtă? Depinde na, sexy este un concept subiectiv.

Woah, I don’t know, a very short dress? It depends, sexy is a subjective concept.

Sergiu: Da, pentru tine, normal.

Yes, for you, normally.

Girl: Da.

Sergiu: Și sus?

And up?

Girl: Decolteu?


Sergiu: Din ăla, un V din ăla adânc de tot, așa-i? (Da, exact)

That kind, a really deep V of that kind, right? (Yes, exactly)

Girl: Nu neapărat, depinde, trebuie să ai ce să pui în el dar da.

Not necessarily, it depends, you have to have something to put inside it but yes.

Sergiu: Da, ok și ce…ce trebuie să pui în el?

Yes, ok and what…what do you have to put in it?

Girl: Nu sunt mare fană, da.

I’m not a big fan, yes.

Sergiu: Da, tu porți așa freestyle, nu?

But you wear like freestyle, right?

Girl: Nu.

Sergiu: Adică faci…ai un decolteu și un sutien simplu.

I mean you do…you have a cleavage and a simple bra.

Girl: Da.

Sergiu: Ok, mersi.

Ok, thanks.

Grammar XLVIII


We will ease up on the grammar in this lesson as well, I want you to focus more on communication and understanding than on rules.

The two verbs for today are a rupe (to break) and a pierde(to lose).

Rup, rupi, rupe, rupem, rupeți, rup

Pierd, pierzi, pierde, pierdem, pierdeți, pierd

Rupe-mi inima! (-mi is the short form of îmi, a word we learned and saw in many past lessons)

Break my heart!

Își pierde sufletul. (Își is a reflexive dative pronoun – showing that he loses his own soul and not somebody else’s)

He’s losing his soul.

Challenge XLVIII

Go up to a girl and say:

Blugii tăi sunt foarte sexy.

Your jeans are very sexy.
