The lessons contain dialogues, vocabulary sections, common phrases used in everyday life, grammar explanations, and examples of correct usage. The 3rd edition also adopts a “teach yourself” approach, with all dialogues and grammar explanations translated into English.

The book is cited in academic bibliographies and represents a comprehensive guide to common vocabulary problems and to most of the grammar difficulties associated with Romanian.

Dr. Brian Imhoff, Texas A&M University, USA
"Learn Romanian" is a benchmark in its field. It is dedicated to foreigners who wish to learn not only Romanian, but the best literate Romanian. It is divided into two books, the manual and the exercise book. The manual is the first work structured on levels, related to the common European reference for languages and it goes from level A1 to level B2. The information flows naturally and it is original and complete. The grammar part is very well structured and explained, being easy to follow by people who have a good language background as well as by beginners. The present work is the best opportunity for Romanian teachers to teach high quality lessons and to make their students enjoy learning this beautiful language.

I have learned Romanian language with the “Learn Romanian” manual, the 3rd edition. Dr. Moldoveanu Pologea's book is structured so as to provide all the information you need. Thanks to the recordings, the exercises and the grammar tables, you make progress without realizing it. I warmly recommend this book to all the foreigners interested in learning Romanian.
