6 Good Reasons to learn Romanian

Romanian may not be among the world’s most widespread languages. However, Romanian is spoken by around 25 million people as a native language and around 4 million people from over 40 countries of the world are learning Romanian as a foreign language. This is quite a considerable number.

Apart from sheer numbers, there are quite a few good reasons to learn Romanian. We are going to take a look at some of them in this article.

1. Romance language

Romanian is a Romance language, which means that Romanian can be a gateway to other Romance languages. Romance languages include French, Spanish, Italian, and others. Mastering Romanian will make mastering these languages easier. Equally, if you already know another Romance language, learning Romanian will be a little easier, which is especially great news if you are aspiring to be a polyglot and learn many languages.

2. Romanian sounds beautiful

It is easy to pronounce but sounds beautiful. Romanian spelling is mostly phonemic and there are no silent letters. As soon as you master the alphabet and a few pronunciation rules you will be able to read Romanian easily – and it is such a beautifully sounding language at that.

3. Romanian culture

You will be able to immerse yourself into the rich and colourful Romanian culture. Romanian cuisine is delicious, the music is a lot of fun, and the people are friendly and open. Knowledge of Romanian language will help you really appreciate it. Romanian art and culture are full of famous geniuses and great names; being able to understand them in their own language is priceless.

4. Business

Knowledge of Romanian will give you better career opportunities. Romania is a country where a lot of investors are developing major projects. Employers are looking for candidates who can competently communicate with the Romanian employees. Learning Romanian could improve your results in relations with any business in Balkan countries.

5. Travelling

You will be able to make the most of travelling in Romania. Romania is the country with the largest number of Orthodox monasteries. Romania has a rich culture that can be discovered by visiting the traditional villages of the Carpathian Mountains, medieval citadels, and castles.

6. Brain health

Train your brain. Learning any foreign language is good for your brain. It exercises your memory and cognitive skills and helps the brain stay young longer. Why not learn Romanian then? To add to training your brain, it is a beautiful language that is relatively easy to learn.

Final thoughts

As you can see, even a language with lower popularity than English, Spanish or French is very well worth learning. Learning Romanian will open up a whole new part of the world for you, so if you are thinking about taking up a foreign language – do consider this beautiful and fun Romance language.
