English translation:Can you recommend a Romanian friend ? I do not speak Romanian . Thank you .
Explanation:
That is without mentioning if a female or male .

HOWEVER ,
For a female , as you wrote " prietena romana" it goes like this :
Can you recommend a Romanian girlfriend ?

For a male , as you also wrote " un " it goes like this :
Can you recommend a Romanian boyfriend ?

So, really , it could be either of the 3 versions .

Could you recommend a Romanian girlfriend. I am not speaking Romanian. Thank you.


Explanation:
The sentence in Romanian contains a mistake. The writer says "un" which is used for male and, on the other hand, he/she wants a girlfriend "prietena" , female. Since he/she does not know Romanian, I decided that the girlfriend is what he/she wants and the mistake is at "un".

Can you recommend a Romanian friend? I don't speak Romanian. Thanks.


Explanation:
The question is ambiguous because "prietena" and "romana" are feminine and would require the feminine article "o" rather than the masculine article "un". However, since the speaker states he or she does NOT speak Romanian, one could also assume that the speaker mistakenly used feminine endings for "prieten" and "roman", although I think this would be much less likely.
