Lesson Transcript

Bună tuturor! Sunt Raluca. Hi everybody! I’m Raluca.
Welcome to RomanianPod101.com’s Româna în 3 minute. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Romanian.
In the last lesson, we learned how to introduce ourselves in Romanian. In this lesson, we’re going to learn how to use good manners as we thank people.
Sunteți pregătiți?; Are you ready? Să începem!, Let’s start!
Saying “Thank you” in Romanian is very easy! It’s just one word:
Mulțumesc.
[slowly] Mulțumesc.
Mulțumesc means “thank you”.
To say “thank you very much”, you just need to add foarte mult after it. Foarte mult means “very” or “a lot”.
Mulțumesc foarte mult.
[slowly] Mulțumesc foarte mult.
For a simple “thanks”, Mulțumesc will be enough. If you would like to say more than just “thanks”, Mulțumesc foarte mult is good to use.
Now it’s time to listen and repeat:
Mulțumesc. [pause]
Mulțumesc foarte mult. [pause]
Now, how do you respond to “thank you” in Romanian? It’s easy!
The most common way to say “you’re welcome” is: Pentru nimic.
[slowly] Pentru nimic.
Nimic means “nothing”. So pentru nimic literally means “it’s nothing”, but we use it to mean “you’re welcome”.
So when someone says Mulțumesc to you, you can simply reply with:
Pentru nimic.
Now it’s time for Raluca’s Insights.
If you’re not sure about whether to use Mulțumesc or Mulțumesc foarte mult, keeping it simple is always your safest bet. You don’t have to worry about formal or informal situations; Mulțumesc can be used with just about anyone, anywhere and at anytime!
Do you know how to say goodbye to your friends in Romanian? In our next lesson you’ll learn this and other greetings!
Pe curând! See you soon!

Salut Kelley,


The system reports your reply as wrong, because the ț (t with a comma below) should be ţ.

Here is an online Romanian keyboard, you could use to avoid the issue.


Thank you,

Hi, I have taken the written test for this lesson several times and every time I have answered the translation for "thank you" the program counts "mulțumesc" as a wrong answer. 😡 Please check the program for this error. 👍

Is it more common to say pentru nimic in certain regions of Romania?


I've been to București many times and have always heard cu plăcere sau pentru puțin.
