Why is it dog un câine but bread is o pâine? I am confused because they both have the same ending.


Because câine is a masculine noun, while pâine is a feminine one. The ending doesn't help figuring this out, you just have to know their genders. I know it is difficult.

It is difficult for me too when I'm learning Spanish or French because I assume their nouns have the same genders I've associated them in my mind, yet they very often do not.


In Spanish and French there is a regular pattern which provides a clue. However, as in any language, there are a few exceptions.


No worries, Răzvan. On the other hand, Spanish is alphabetic so it should be an advantage when learning to speak it. On my end, my island Spanish accent makes it easier to pronounce Romanian words. My Romanian grammar needs a lot of work, though.
