CARTE DE GLUME VERSIUNE BILINGVA is an excellent way for Romanian people to practise their English – and for foreigners who are trying to learn Romanian. Great jokes like:
“Mummy, can I wear a bra now that I’m sixteen?”
to wear (wore, worn) – a purta (haine, accesorii) (vocabulary to help you)
bra - sutien
And on the following page, a translation if you need it.
“Mami, pot sa port sutien acuma ca am 16 ani?”
Un barbat de 80 ani merse la doctor.
“Ma casatoresc saptamana viitoare.”
“Foarte bine”, zise doctorul. “Cati ani are prietena dvs?”
“18”, raspunse omul.
“Dumnezeule! Trebuie sa va previn ca orice fel de activitate in pat poate fi fatala.”
”Pai”, zise barbatul, “Daca moare, moare.”
