You just met a Romanian but you don’t really know where to start a conversation. Small talk. Whether you like it or not, it’s unavoidable. So we thought give you a few useful phrases in Romanian to use when exploring the art of making conversation out of nothing. Here you go:
De unde esti? = Where are you from?
Cu ce te ocupi? = What do you work in (what trade)?
A fost asa cald/frig, azi! = It was so hot/cold today!
Iti pot oferii un pahar? = Can I buy you a drink?
Vii des aici ? = Do you come here often?
Ai planuri pentru weekend? = Do you have plans for the weekend?
Cum ti-a fost saptamana? = How was your weekend?
As vrea sa vad noul film al lui____________ = I would like to see __________’s new movie.
Okay, so there is a fine line between small talk and sweet talk so be careful. Once you cross the line just a little bit, you might be seen as a libidinos (bullshitter/sweet-talker).
