How do you do this it's hard for me to do

September 14, 2018


Same question as others...is it correct to just say "nu beau apa"? thanks for any answer! Marta

@GeoMan2 left an answer to that question above already and if yours is the same question why not reply under an existing thread?

September 5, 2017


GeoMan2 seems to be saying that one can often omit "eu", but I do not believe it is okay to do so in this "run-on" sentence form what with its two independent clauses which are not joined by a conjunction.

They did the second setence wrong!!! It is "eu nu"

Why is the pronunciation of beau correct online but wrong on the app? It should be closer to "meow"

What is the correct pronunciation of "bai" şi "bea"? I'm confused, esp. at "bea"

February 20, 2019


Please use diacritics. "Bai" - as in "nu-i niciun bai" - no matter! or "băi" - baths.

bai - /baj/ ba (like in bath - british pronunciation) and i.

băi - /bə'i/ b as in bard, ă like in church and i

bea - /be̯a/ b as in bard, e as in example, a as in Arnold.

do you use apă and apa

April 4, 2019


one is "water" and one is "the water"

The sound for 'beau' is wring. Please review!

April 5, 2019


is it possible to omit the pronoun on the second part of the sentence? "El nu mănâncă pâinea, nu beau apa.", because it marked my answer wrong because i didn't checked that option. but it seems that "eu" is missing in "eu nu beau apa"

Correct solutions: El nu mănâncă pâinea, eu nu beau apa., El nu mănâncă pâinea, nu beau apa.

July 24, 2017


Huh? How can eu be missing in "eu nu..." ?

July 25, 2017


where it says "Correct Solutions" it has two correct options: -El nu mănâncă pâinea, eu nu beau apa. and -El nu mănâncă pâinea, nu beau apa.

the second option has "eu" missing. i spoke with a Romanian friend, and she said the second option is wrong.

July 25, 2017


It's ok without "eu", because in romanian, you understand the person from the (conjugation of the) verb, so you can miss it many times.

August 26, 2017


it is possible to omit 'eu', but since the sentence tries to show an opposition of some sort, it is more emphatic using both pronouns. (in general I do not like that they make us use so many pronouns in these exercises because it's just too much)

in the english portion, take out "the" in front of water.

January 28, 2017


Looks like that would make it wrong. apa is the definite form, so one should use the definite English article when translating. The exercise is correct the way it is.
