since I know a lot of romanian people and I speak with them every day, they dont pronounce the word "beau" like its pronounced on this one. Thats definitely a mistake.
A rough approximation in English would be to say that it rhymes with the word "meow". Check out http://forvo.com/word/beau/#ro
My Romanian husband, from Craiova, pronounces it like "meow", so beow.. Apparently, there are different "accents" in Romania, but the standard is the Bucharest one.
Im not sure if it makes sense to you but romanian language is pretty much pronounced the way its written.
So is Irish. The question is, what are the rules that govern the orthography?
For some reason, the pronunciation here is way off. It should be /beaw/ (I'm not very good with IPA, but the key is the diphthong "ea")
I admire the efforts of the contributors but this girl is speaking way to fast (somehow "compressing" words) (or maybe is some software "optimization" that ruins the pronunciation).
You're saying that Romanian is spoken slower than she's speaking it? If you are saying that, that is a relief. Lol
No. The vowels "e," "a," and "u" are pronounced "eh," "ah," and "uu," respectively. Hence "eau" in Romanian is just those three sounds in that order, pronounced in one fell swoop.
No, not is it the pronounce like french, in the next link you can listen the pronounce native.

Not at all! French has one of the weirdest pronunciation rules of all languages I know!
No. In Romanian,
a is pronounced like in "car", and
ă is pronounced like in "love".
I don't think Romanian has vowel like in "apple".
The ă in apă is pronounced like the u in upper.
apă sounds more like on-pull.
upper is a good aproximation (but with the first A from apă more open (like you would say "Aaaah").
Bravo! Ortografia corectă este "m-am nascut"... ( am lăsat-o fără diacritice :) )
I'm just wondering, could this also means "I am drinking water" or is there different conjugations for that?
