Cultural Insight
Michael: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Larisa: In Romania, a lot of tourists of varying nationalities come to visit the country, so natives are pretty used to foreigners. Unlike English, in Romanian only the country is written with capital letters while the nationality is not. Also, nationalities in Romanian have masculine and feminine forms, so make sure to use the correct noun in gender and number.
