Between the wars, the
Romanians were, among other things, known for the amount of energy they
invested in talking politics. These days, the Romanians focus their energy on
getting involved in the media, whether it's the radio, the TV or the Internet. In this lesson, you're presented with media-related language.
As usual, we
begin with a bunch of relevant words and phrases.
La radio=on the radio
Transport public=public transport
A face greva= to go on strike
Cu taxiul=by taxi
Pauza de prinz=lunch break
Astazi/azi dimineata=this morning
A se incalzi= to get warm
Now let us use some of the words in meaningful

transportul public vor face greva.
