As part of my Romanian cultural immersion, I have been trying to learn more of their history, watch their TV shows, listen to their music, read their newspapers, even read their translation of the Bible. Some of it helps me learn the language better. Some of it is just a nice break from other language studies. Some of it is really a good education on what it means to be Romanian.
Jason recommended the video “King of Communism.” If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. It’s a really good look at the last of Eastern Europe’s communist dictators: Nicolae Ceausescu.
