Romanian 1, Practice 7

Filed under: Philologia — Robinson Dorion @ 16:19

I practiced exercise 7 this morning. It's a ~30 minute session of listening and speaking building on the previous practices. Since there's such reptition in the exercises, this isn't exactly a fluid conversation, so adjust your expectations accordingly.
