"Learn Romanian" Manual 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.

The "Learn Romanian" Manual along with the Exercise Book form a comprehensive Romanian course running from basic phrases until complex structures. The language and the vocabulary used in the books is colloquial and contemporary, relevant for everyday usage. The texts for advanced students at the end of the Manual offer a diverse basic package about Romanian culture and society. The books tackle the challenges in Romanian language from versatile viewpoints, providing a steady foundation for balanced Romanian skills.

I have been very fortunate to be able to study in the ROLANG Academy. The courses, adapted to the level of difficulty you need, always in small groups, are very practical and focused directly on the needs of a person who needs a sufficient knowledge of the Romanian ... and does not have too  much time. The "Learn Romanian" manual has been a great help during the courses, because it is very well structured, and it includes basic notions of grammar and vocabulary. The new edition of this manual, with many new lessons, audio exercises and solutions, allows you to continue learning and reaching an advanced level of Romanian. It is undoubtedly one of the best options for a foreigner to learn Romanian.

Dr. José Ignacio Mir Montes, Spain
