I've resolved today that I'm going to charge my reasonable Romanian into a much stronger tool, with the plan that I will attempt to become a certified Romanian Interpreter for the Coast Guard at the end of January.
I'm a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Auxiliary has an Interpreter Corps that supports the U.S. Coast Guard. Maybe my Romanian's good enough right now to pass their tests. I don't know. But I don't want to leave anything to chance. I'm taking another large course with the Coast Guard in January which will have me driving some long hours back and forth, during which time I will be listening to my Romanian dialogues. I will also now move in the direction of speaking only Romanian at home with my Romanian wife.
I'll make regular updates on this blog about the progress of my attempt.
