Reading the Bible: Good way to learn Romanian

Hello!

I discovered a site which allows you to read the Bible side-by-side in English and Romanian. Best of all, there is a voice option which reads the Romanian part to you while you compare the English and Romanian text. This helps you with pronunciations. I've gotten the most use out of this by pausing the voice option after each sentence and then reading the Romanian text to myself so that I can practice my speaking, reading, and listening. Link is below!

It's a great breakthrough, but you have to be careful, the speaker seems to read a different version of the text than the one displayed.

I don't know if it's SO MUCH of a good idea, you'll find a lot of archaic words that aren't used in day to day conversations, but you can definitely try it out ! :)

I may give it a try. I rather like following Peppa Pig in Romanian on You Tube... I think that's about my level, other than the health pages in Romanian newspapers as so many of the words are similar to the English ones (that are derived from Greek/Latin).

WOW, I was just thinking of that today! I became interested in Romania when I discovered a great trio called Noblesse. I just love their music and as I followed their singing opportunities I found a lot of other great music too. They have also sung at places where there were English messages with a Romanian interpreter. I was just listening to one (it was a series of about 14 messages so was a LOT of preaching but was great to practice on!) again today and was so happy to be able to understand a lot of it! Thanks for mentioning it. I hadn't tried it again since I started studying again about 4 months ago.

That's a great way of learning! I do that two, in a 'physical' Bible, that way it's really easy to compare it with the Bible in my native language (Dutch). And to have an online dictionary or commentary at hand.
