I am looking for a good study book to learn Romanian. I am not talking about holiday Romanian, but the real thing.
The book/DVD can be in English, Dutch or German.
Thanks in advance!

Online course Dec 7, 2008

Dear Anika,

I know it's not what you asked for, but it might also be very helpful for you: an online course held by our colleague Veronica Drugas: http://www.proz.com/translator_training/romanian_online_course-1045.html.

Good luck!

HTH

I have used "Lehrbuch der rumänischen Sprache" by Salzer and "Einführung in die rumänische Sprache" by Klein/Ceauşescu. I have found both to be helpful. You need some knowledge of linguistics to use Klein/Ceauşescu, but will benefit from it accordingly.

Colloquial Romanian: A Complete Language Course / Dennis Deletant. Very useful for beginners. You can find this book on Amazon.

A course in contemporary Romanian/ Boris Cazacu, Matilda Caragiu Marioteanu, Clara Georgeta Chiosa, Valeria Gutu Romalo. Out-of-date texts, but very good grammar explanations. Only for linguists.

Good luck!
Delia

Colloquial Romanian Dec 18, 2008

I'm Romanian and I've used that book for review. It's not really a complete package and it doesn't really give detailed explanations on some things that foreigners might not automatically understand but it's a start. Once you become more advanced you could try going for some Romanian grammar books which you can find on internet sites such as librarie.net. Unfortunately not many complete foreign language books on Romanian are available.
