Dr. Brian Imhoff, Texas A&M University, USA
The "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 the 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 foreigners interested in learning Romanian.
Dr. Javier Quesada, Spain
I have to say these are the best language
materials I have seen for any language. Well done! Best regards.

The "Learn Romanian" Manual
along with the Exercise Book form a comprehensive Romanian course
running from basic phrases to complex structures. The language and
the vocabulary used in the books are 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 the Romanian
language from versatile viewpoints, providing a steady foundation for
balanced Romanian skills.
Lari Peltonen, Finland
I have been very fortunate to be able to
study at 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 sufficient
knowledge of 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
Dr. José Ignacio Mir Montes, Spain
I have studied at the ROLANG Academy and
I have used the 3rd edition of the "Learn Romanian" manual.
I thought it a very complete and practical guide that helps you a lot
to learn this language. It has been a great help during the courses
and it is so complete that I can use it on my own because the
exercises come with their solutions. Congratulations!
