Lesson Transcript

Welcome to RomanianPod101.com’s “Româna în 3 minute”. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Romanian.
Bună, sunt Raluca. Îmi pare bine.
Hi, I'm Raluca. Nice to meet you.
In this series, we’re going to learn basic Romanian phrases. It’s super easy and it only takes three minutes!
In this lesson, you’re going to learn how to introduce yourself in Romanian. You’ll be surprised by how easy it is. Are you ready? Here we go.
Let’s start with a polite and common way to introduce yourself.
Bună, sunt Raluca. Îmi pare bine.
Hi, I'm Raluca. Nice to meet you.
[slowly] Bună, sunt Raluca. Îmi pare bine.
The first word is Bună, which means “hi”, or “hello”. After that comes sunt, which means “I am”. Then, say your name. For example, Bună, sunt Raluca ,“Hi, I’m Raluca.”
Finally, say Îmi pare bine, which means “nice to meet you”.
So all together it would be:
Bună, sunt Raluca. Îmi pare bine.
Hi, I'm Raluca. Nice to meet you.
There is also another way to say your name.
Instead of Sunt Raluca, I could say Mă numesc Raluca.
Mă numesc literally means “I call myself”. But we use it to mean “my name is”.
Bună, mă numesc Raluca.. Îmi pare bine. Hi, my name is Raluca. Nice to meet you.
[slowly] Bună, mă numesc Raluca. Îmi pare bi-ne.
Again, let’s take a look at these two ways to introduce yourself.
Bună, sunt Raluca. Îmi pare bine.
Hi, I'm Raluca. Nice to meet you.
Bună, mă numesc Raluca. Îmi pare bine. Hi, my name is Raluca. Nice to meet you.
Now it’s time for Raluca’s Insights.
In formal situations, people in Romanian speaking countries greet each other by shaking hands. On the other hand, if we meet someone we are very friendly with, we kiss each other on both cheeks. So don’t be surprised if this happens to you!
Do you know how we say “thank you” in Romanian? You’ll learn how to say this and many other words in the next lesson. Pe curând! See you soon!

Bună, Youhanna!


Thank you for learning Romanian here and for your comment!

That website is a very easy and good option for typing special Romanian characters for beginners.

I also recommend you try the virtual keyboard for Romanian in the Google Translate online web app.

It is not as easy to use as Lexilogos, but because you get the full keyboard, you get used to where special characters are positioned, which could be useful in case you will type directly from your keyboard in the future.

Good luck and feel free to ask us any question!


Cheers,

Mihai

Bună, sunt Youhanna. îmi pare bine.

Mulţumesc foarte mult! ❤️️


(I used Lexilogos to type the special Romanian letter, is it the easiest way for beginners?)

Useful phrase: Imi pare bine. I can use this in conjunction with "incantat de cunostinta" as well.

:thumbsup::sunglasses::smile: I am going to say that I like this medium a lot more then the audio or PDF files combined. Seeing someone speak is so helpful, I can mimic and practice and with the on screen text it helps me absorb the information more streamline. I can honestly say I love these lessons better in contrast to the others.
