Many are like sentences in English that express ideas you have said or heard often before.

The foreign version is placed first to encourage you to look for and recognize foreign words similar to ones in English -- and deduce what the foreign words mean by yourself without being given the translation first.

These sentences in Romanian are followed by the English words that would be a good guess using as clues the Romanian words similar to English. So as a result these are rough translations of the Romanian sentences, which may not be the exact meanings, but will be close enough that you could deduce what is meant.

After the Romanian and English versions of each sentence is the pronunciation of the Romanian sentence.

The easiest way is to just read them. Or if you see some you might possibly use on your trip to Romania, you can try to pronounce them, which is not easiest.
