Writing in Romanian for the First Time

Salut! Eu sunt Alex. Eu am saispreceze ani. Eu am doua caini si o pisica. Eu nu pot scrie buna in romana!

This is probably so wrong, so here's what I was trying to write: Hi! I am Alex. I am 16 years old. I have two dogs and a cat. I cannot write well in Romanian!

Please correct any mistakes, and thank you to all the contributors to the course. I am so excited to learn it!

Yay, I can read basic things in Romanian. I only needed the translation for two words

My guess: Salut! Sunt Alex, am șaisprezece ani. Am doi câini și o pisică. Nu pot scrie bine în română.

You don't need to use personal pronouns in Romanian like you do in English. In Romanian they are used either to distinguish subjects (el are o pisică, dar ea are un câine) or when you want to stress a subject (eu mănânc un măr [not another person]).

Mult noroc! :)

Hi! There are a few mistakes... The corrected sentence is "Salut! Eu sunt Alex. Eu am saisprezece ani. Eu am doi caini si of pisica. Eu nu pot scrie bine in romana!"

By the way, I'm a native Romanian! :D

Bună, am înțeles ce ai scris. Am început cursul în limba română, dar sunt un incepator și nu pot scrie abia.

Nu am suficient timp în aceste zile, dar cred că îmi place această limbă. Nu știu dacă voi continua acest curs, dar aș dori să.
