Summary/Abstract: This article aims to give a brief overview of the main issues raised by the Romanian language in teaching and learning activities. In learning Romanian language as a foreign language, a number of difficulties may appear which may be related to the specific grammatical structure. A first obstacle may be represented by phonetic system of the Romanian language because here we have some specific sounds (letters). Another problem is the emphasis, as in Romanian, unlike other languages, the focus position varies a lot. It can be at the beginning, middle or end of the word without any clear rules in this regard. It is also a problem related to the understanding of verbal and nominal flexion. The word in the Romanian language changes its shape very much and we are witnessing phonetic alternations that are relatively hard to explain and to understand. At the morphological level, we have seen problems in understanding the adjective agree in gender with the noun for the foreign speakers where this grammar rule does not exist. As methodological suggestions, we obviously focus on starting from the basics to the complex in teaching Romanian language, to get a good fixed minimum fund which then can be returned to the more complex elements of grammar and vocabulary.We find the exercise method the most efficient one: proper forms identification exercises, translation and retranslation exercises, filling the gaps with the appropriate forms exercises, word order exercises, etc. If the Romanian language is under the guidance of the teacher, the conversation method is a very good one. We must not forget that the Romanian language is an important goal for Romanian culture knowledge.
