I'll be in Romania in 3 weeks time, and I share your frustration. Whoever wrote this curriculum did so using a purely grammar-translation syllabus, giving no no consideration whatsoever to language function. We are therefore taught how to say that we lose fingernails, as if that were something we regularly do, but not that the toilet doesn't flush or even that we would like to know where the restroom is. (Yes, I've figured out how to say that, but those never appear as example sentences.)
