In Moldova, tourism is mainly focused around wine cellars, monasteries, and Orthodox churches. Additionally, the country has a national ecological network covering 73,145 hectares and includes biological corridors of national and international importance.

How to Succeed in Having Good Pronunciation Within a Week to a Month?

A Romance language spoken by around 28 million people, Romanian is the official language of Romania, Moldova, Transnistria, and Vojvodina. The alphabet uses Latin characters and has 31 letters whose phonemes have many similarities with those of other Romance languages. Among the peculiarities of Romanian are the numbers of diphthongs and triphthongs, 26 and 14 respectively.

Students looking to learn the correct pronunciation of Romanian are faced with spellings that are almost phonetic. In other words, the speaker can almost always pronounce the word as it is written, which greatly facilitates learning. In relation to the rhythm of the language, the accent is tonic and can strike the last five syllables of a word.

Classical :  Vrei să pleci dar nu mă, nu mă iei
Nu mă, nu mă iei, nu mă, nu mă, nu mă iei
Chipul tău și dragostea din tei
Mi-amintesc de ochii tăi

Just kidding, love this site! Actually that song inspired me to study Romanian a little :)
Barry :  Great little programme and the speakers are so clear and have pleasant voices. One little thing, some of the spellings are a little out of date for example pîine is spelt pâine nowadays.
Robert di Anton :  Wonderful program. Great audio.
