Romanian, like French and Spanish, is a Romance language. It borrows some of its words from ancient Slavic, Bulgarian, Turkish, and even German. Millions of people speak Romanian, mainly from Romania and Moldova, where it's the official language. Among the most exciting things about this language is that it is easy to master, especially for conversants in other Romance languages.
Since it is a phonetic language, each word is pronounced as it is spelled. Romanian enthusiasts have to put in a lot more effort when learning its grammar, which can be somewhat confusing. It is influenced by Bulgarian, Macedonian, Serbian, and Albanian.
