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.

Hi everyone, I just started a Youtube channel with all things Romanian. Nothing too formal though. First video is up here if you want to take a look https://youtu.be/0QjyHNMQPjs


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

Thanks for all of this.

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/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/Colescu

Unfortunately, a lot of links are dead now...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sarahweird1

this is very useful! I'll definetly use some of these in the furture!


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.

    Thanks for the tips!


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

    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. :)

    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

      Some interesting online magazines

      Educational magazine aimed at advanced schoolchildren (pre-university level): https://stiripentrucopii.com/

      Popular science for adults: https://stiintasitehnica.com/


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lynne322244

      I don't know if you do the Memrise course but in the first few lessons, there are a couple of errors like the word for man is shown as bărbat, but said as bărbatul, which would be super confusing to beginners

      Learn Romanian in just 5 minutes a day. For free.
