FREE Romanian Resources

Updated with sections and more links

Last update - 26/03/2017


Bună everybody!

First thing's first. I want to say a huuuuge mersi to Team Romanian for their dedication to helping people learn one of the world's most unique and beautiful languages! And also for choosing the world's sexiest TTS ;)

Here is a list of FREE Romanian resources for you to try! Comment more if you think they should be added!

NOTE ON FSI COURSE

This is quite a large file and many take a while to load/download. Personally, I find it easier to download to read offline.

I know! Romanian is such a beautiful language. Bookmarked. Thank you so much!

I HUGELY recommend Learn Romanian with Nico's channel. She was my kick start when I was an absolute beginner. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MayRNY

I find it difficult to learn from youtube, you cannot do exercises you need to scroll back and forth...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TseDanylo

I know, her videos are the best :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SunnyCane

I've watched a few of her videos a year ago.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ClimateNow

I like it as well

This is a great resource.

http://afostodata.net/ --> Short stories with text + audio

I was looking for audio books + books before to listen to the book and read along to get to know the sound of the language better and train my listening comprehension.

That was nearly impossible, as all the audio books I found have different texts than the books.

This website helps me a lot, so I thought to share it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FresnoVegas

Thanks for all of this.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MayRNY

I find www.learnro.com quite good. It's the only site with Phonetical transcription and I can't imagine learning a language without it. I understand that it seems cumbersome for many, but in my experience learning a language and trying to reproduce it only by hearing it by the melody of that language will not take you very far. After many years of practicing a language, I realised that I was saying it wrong. With the phonetical transcription you do not run this risk. There is a dedicated pronunciation section (www.learnro.com/romanian-pronunciation), that I can't find here on duolingo either.

I find the content quite good on www.learnro.com if only they could make it more user friendly.

Does anyone have a good youtube playlist of cartoons or series in Romanian with English subtitles?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TseDanylo

No, but I did an internet search for you maybe this will help :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ChrisVossen

Mersi! Will check it when I'm at home


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IngunnW.

You can also search for the Romanian version of Disney songs, as they often come with the English subtitles for comparison (English direct translation of the Romanian version, that is, not the English lyrics). Some of the videos I've found from this even comes with subtitles in both languages :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/semcolakis

I've bookmarked the list. Thanks a lot.

    Thank you for sharing! x

    Mondly has a nice Ro course as well. Part of it is paid though.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TseDanylo

    But that would go against what I began this post for ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ann470797

    I tried Mondly and the course itself is nice but I don't like the fact that I have to pay for it. Duolingo is similar to Mondly and I am really happy that I found that. Here you have the community as well and even more topics to learn.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Aline_Duo

    Thanks for the tips!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/xxteadrinkerxx

    Thank you so much for leaving this here!!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nieves942223

    another one: http://hallo.ro/search.do?l=ro&d=en&query= also you can get it french-roumanian, spanish- roumanian, german-roumanian, and italian-roumanian


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TrevKAllred

    Has anyone had any experience with RomanianPod101 (found it on Romanian101)? I'm hopeful to find some listening practice in short, quick bites at a time.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SunnyCane

    Did you finished all of your French lessons on Duolingo? If so, how is your fluency?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TrevKAllred

    My fluency is, I think, pretty good. I put myself to the test after practicing in the translation section until I reached 25, and I found that I could handle about an hour conversation without using another language and read simple things. I found Duolingo, combined with a workbook, got me ready for some immersion. I'd recommend finishing the tree, doing translations on the site and add in some Memrise courses for more vocabulary.

    I do owe a lot of my French skills to my Italian, though. I've studied that twice as long as French and am much more confident with it. So that really gave me an advantage with French. That said, I feel I'm at a point that with some intentional study, I could be ready for the DELF French proficiency B2 exam this summer.

    How's it coming along for you?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SunnyCane

    I am diving in this **** as if my life depends on it. I used memrise in the past. I read online newspapers and pick out most used words than study those along with the lessons from Duolingo. I watch gaming channels as well as online radio on YouTube (La Europa FM cu Andreea Esca...). Plus, I listen to Romanian music ( the ones I like of course) and use their lyrics to sing along. :) I hope to be fluent in about a year.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TrevKAllred

    Yeah, you got this! I'd recommend Meetup.com, too. Found a great conversation group nearby me that really helped me grow.

    Good luck!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TseDanylo

    Muchas gracias por eso :)

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TetoKasanekokiko

    Thank you very much for the resources! Actually, those YouTube channels are GOLD


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Salander_s

    Can anyone recommend any Romanian songs? Something popular, maybe folk. I just don't know where to start looking for it.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RMarcy

    Smiley, Delia, Holograf(goup), Akcent(group), Andra, Elena Gheorghe... They are so many! Check Romanian singers. Good luck! Folk music is hard to translate. Begin with the modern one. :)

    Thank you these useful link! Regards!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Simpleromanian

    There is also a website with 68 free lessons that I created in 2015. I hope you will find it useful :) http://simpleromanian.com


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ErikLehnsherrs

    Mersi! I really appreciate this and will definitely be using it!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kirsten439637

    Thank you so much! I was looking for a really in-depth guide to the grammar (as my god, sometimes those endings make my brain hurt!). This is brilliant and I will be downloading the FSI course to peruse it offline now :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IngunnW.

    Thanks for the tips. This is bookmarked in my Romanian file now! :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SiSperanta

    Multumesc multa!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dadamache89

    Learn Romanian With Nico- Youtube Lessons is really really good. I believe everyone that is learning Romanian should give her a try.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dadamache89

    She was the first one I looked at too when I first started.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SabrinaPowell

    Thank you so much for sharing! I am moving to Romania in August and this will help me tremendously !

    How did this discussion become a Sticky discussion?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TseDanylo

    A discussion can be made sticky by a forum moderator.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mike_L93

    Is the Duolingo Memrise still being worked on? It's incomplete but would be a great asset in combination with the duolingo course. Repetition is key in learning words too. Also, does anyone know how to access the complete vocabulary list for this course?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/leahmarjorie

    Wonderful list of resources! Very helpful, thank you so much!
