Hi, I speak Spanish, but I won't be able to practice with you on a regular basis. Romanian is one of the languages I practice here sometimes (though it is not one of the ones that I work on the most), and I have completed only the first 20 skills or so, of the Romanian tree, but I saw your post and I felt I should make an effort and try to write something in Romanian (because working on Duolingo trees is all and well, but sooner or later I have to start trying to write something and express myself in Romanian too :-) ).
Pot citi cărți foarte confortabil în italiană, franceză, spaniolă, portugheză și catalană, așa că am crezut că limba română ar fi foarte ușoară pentru mine, dar nu este. Este destul de diferită de celelalte limbi românești pe care deja le vorbesc. În acest moment, când încerc să citesc o pagină wikipedia în limba română, pot înțelege jumătate sau chiar mai puțin. Nu pot scrie fără un dicționar și chiar folosind unul, ca acum, sunt sigur că fac multe greșeli.
Dar aș vrea să învăț această limbă în viitorul nu prea îndepărtat.
This was a huge surprise. I gave you a Lingot for your effort, you really deserve it. :)
Your Romanian writing is excellent; a bit academic for a student learning the language, but it was impressive!
I do have only one suggestion, I would say: "Este destul de diferită de celelalte limbi romanice" instead of "Este destul de diferită de celelalte limbi românești". However, overall your Romanian writing was very good!
Please let me know if you ever want to get back to practicing Romanian or English.
I'm just a message away. ~Eugene
Oh, thanks, I was just writing in Spanish below, when I saw this post of yours. Actually I had to use a dictionary because I don't remember the exact spelling of a lot of words in Romanian yet :-) so it may look a lot better than my actual level :-) . I was writing to you (below, in Spanish) that we could write to each other sometimes on Facebook, if you wish. I usually write in many different languages on Facebook, and many people write to me in Spanish there.
I really appreciate your offer @matfran2001. While I'm not a big fan of FB, I would rather prefer to talk to somebody via Skype, Hangouts or other similar apps.
I also believe that being comfortable in a different language takes a bit of time and effort, and, talking in particular is a different animal all together compared to writing.
I'm still waiting......, maybe a native Spanish speaker out there wants to practice his English once a week. Anybody??!!
¿me preguntas a mí? (supongo que sí, porque soy el único de este hilo, por ahora, con muchas banderas junto a mi nombre).
Muchos "cachitos" de dedicación, cada día, que sumando todos ellos puede ser más de una hora de media al día, estudiando idiomas en Duolingo (y lo he cumplido casi todos los días, durante los últimos dos años y medio).
Completando un árbol de Duolingo y luego repasándolo varias veces (tres, cuatro, cinco veces, entero), puedes adquirir un nivel de lectura de A2 por lo menos (dependiendo del idioma estudiado y de tu lengua materna, claro) y a partir de ahí, puedes empezar a leer libros para niños, y más tarde libros para adultos, a escuchar la radio, la televisión, vídeos en YouTube.....en fin, a partir de ahí ya puedes hacer gran cantidad de cosas para mejorar muchísimo, dadas las posibilidades que la red ofrece gratuitamente hoy en día.
Hi Matfran2001 - if you only got 20 skills or so in the Romanian tree and you could write this well, I'd say start focusing on Romanian, because you have a knack for it :) The only correction, as Eugene said, is "limbi romanice". Other than that, your Romanian, though rather academic-sounding, is really good. Have some lingots from me, too :)
Haha, thanks! Well, as I said, I already can read and write comfortably in French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan, so that may make it much easier for me to start studying a language like Romanian (cause, even though I find Romanian quite different from other Romance languages, it is indeed closer to these other Romance languages than to languages from other families, I guess :-) ).
Actually Romanian reminds me of Latin (I studied just one year of Latin in high school), at least more than the other current Romance languages do. I find it a very interesting mix, because it has some elements of slavic languages too.
I am sure I will study it more in the near future, cause I like it.
