INTRODUCTION

Taking into consideration the fact that nowadays allergies are more common than ever, we decided to teach you how to explain your specific situation, just in case you’re one of many people who have to deal with the unpleasant fact of having an allergy.
BODY
In Romanian, “I’m allergic to this product” is:
Sunt alergic la acest produs.
Let’s break it down:
(slow) Sunt a-ler-gic la a-cest pro-dus.
Once more:
Sunt alergic la acest produs.
The first word, sunt, is a form of the verb that means “to be”.
(slow) Sunt.
Sunt.
The second word, alergic, means “allergic”.
(slow) A-ler-gic.
Alergic.
Next we have la, which means “at” and at the end we have the words acest produs, translated as “this product”.
Let’s hear the expression again:
Sunt alergic la acest produs.
If you have a gluten allergy, you can express this by saying:
Sunt alergic la gluten.
“I’m allergic to gluten.”
In this sentence you can probably guess which word means “gluten”. That is gluten.
Let’s hear that again:
(slow) Sunt a-ler-gic la glu-ten.
Sunt alergic la gluten.
Let’s try with the word for soy now. In Romanian, “soy” is soia.
“I’m allergic to soy” is Sunt alergic la soia.
Let’s hear it one more time slowly:
(slow)Sunt a-ler-gic la so-ia.
Sunt alergic la soia.
REVIEW
Okay, to close out this lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you're responsible for saying it aloud. You have a few seconds before I give you the answer, so mult noroc , which means "Good luck!" in Romanian.
