|Lesson 1: Pronunciation|
IMPORTANT NOTE: Any Romanian word starting with "e" is pronounced with an English "y" sound at the beginning.
Example: "este" is pronounced as yes-teh
Note: You don't have to memorize these if you can remember just to put the two vowel sounds together to make the diphthong sound.Example:
i (ee) + e (eh) = ie (yeh)
o (oh) + a (ah) = oa (wah)
Sound ClipsBelow are sound clips of the numbers 1-10. This will teach you the basic numbers and give you an idea of the Romanian pronunciation and accent. We're providing these pretty much just because we had them on file, and we figured why not?
