Video: Overview of the Romanian Language (Română)

Romanian language video

The lowdown on Romanian

In this video, Paul gives a great overview of Romanian including:

  • its history
  • where it is spoken (global distribution)
  • background on the writing system
  • what other languages have influenced it
  • what regional Romanian varieties exist
  • very much more

Paul includes example samples of the Romanian language to illustrate the main points of how the language works - super helpful for folks just getting started and interesting in general for language geeks like me.

Words from the videographer

This video is all about Romanian - the forgotten Romance language!

Fun facts about Romanian speakers

Romanian is spoken by 18.7 million people in Romania with another 5.7 million speakers living elsewhere. Of these roughly four million people speak Romanian as a second language.
