With a total area of 238,397 square kilometers (92,046 square miles), Romania is the twelfth-largest country in Europe and the sixth-most populous member state of the European Union, having approximately 19.3 million inhabitants (as of 2020). Its capital and largest city is Bucharest. In my experience, Romanian is not a hard language to learn. Since Romanian is a Latin language, it shares many similarities with Spanish, Italian, and even English. While it has grammatical quirks not shared by other Latin languages, it is generally a much easier language to master than Russian, Chinese, or Arabic.
