There's got to be a way to make both multumesc and mersi correct.

There is. One is thanks the other thank you.

mersi is not actually Romanian, and is rarely used in everyday conversation. Very informal, and often used with tourists who will undoubtedly understand the French word, but perhaps not the Romanian.

Wrong, "mersi" is a proper word. It appears in publications by the Romanian Academy's Institute of Linguistics (DEX, DOOM) - you can't get more official than that.

I'm from Bucharest and I use it almost exclusively.

My (romanian) boyfriend says "mersi" way more than "mulţumesc" when we're in Romania

Haha, guess I haven't spent enough time in Romania! I don't recall hearing it at all during my three months in Petresti, and never in Moldova, but I've only visited the bigger cities a couple times

I see. Our case if the opposite. His family is from Bucharest, so most of our time in Romania is spent there. Really interesting how things change a lot from a city to the other!

Mersi is used all the time in daily language. Far more than 'multumesc'

If the course teaches both "multumesc" and "mersi" as options, then both should be accepted as an answer here. If one of them is not a proper term, then it shouldn't be part of the course.

The course tries to make a differentiation in politeness. In Romanian, "mersi" is familiar, while "mulțumesc" is formal. Maybe you can't say that about the relation between "thanks" and "thank you" in general, seeing how English is spoken by a huge amount of people in a huge amount of places. But, as a foreigner learning English, it does feel like that to me.

I along with this course, take lessons from a Romanian who has never mentioned mersi as a real way of saying thank you(and we've had lessons for nearly 2 years). I don't think it should be excepted, even though it is occasionally used in certain parts of Romania

It's used in common language. It's not seen as proper or improper, just different. That's thsnks vs thank you.
