I was going to say "yes" in Latin and then remembered Latin doesn't have a "yes" - like Irish. And even if it did have, I would have forgotten...

Don't worry Andreea - I have more than enough shame to get by on account of all the other languages I have failed to learn :(

Anyway it would be remiss to turn up in a Romanian thread without mentioning the Romanian authors I have read - unfortunately, only one - Incognito by Petru Dimitriu - a great book, even better than Solzhenitsyn while covering the same period.

I'm quite glad that people chime in about their "connection" to Romania/the Romanian language, makes the thread quite interesting. :)

Keep em coming!

Yea, Petru Dumitriu is an interesting writer. Too bad he's not being studied in schools anymore. :(

No, just what little I remembered from what little I learned while living with my Romanian ex. :)

Talking AND writing?That's really cool. I've learned Greek from my husband, I can speak and read it but I can't write it worth a dime.

I don't know if you have kids, or plan on it, but if you did, I'm curious, what language(s) would you speak in?

No I don't have kids yet but maybe I will someday and when I do, I plan on teaching them evertything I know, languages included. Now I speak Romanian, English, Greek, and some French and German. Used to know Hungarian when I was 3-4 but I don't remember any. :(

Going bilingual, or trilingual, is a huge challenge in parenting, but SO worth it. I've met a few trilingual families and it's amazing to watch them in action.

Nothing funnier than seeing parents and kids speak in 3-4 languages in a nice mishmash. :D

Am o vaga idee, nu o baga idee, typo de la mine. Oops.

Se poate sta pe net de oriunde, acuma poti sa-ti iei computerul si in parc sa scrii :D Vreau sa incerc asta o data, sa stau frumos pe bancuta si sa scriu.

Dar intai sa fie mai rece pe afara ca e prea mult.
 

Happy Thanksgiving
