#John Campbell, Romanian ppl are fine, here in Sibiu are not a lot of Americans but ppl from here are kind and you can integrate easy in this town, 70% of young ppl here speak english.
#bybi on Oct 12, 2016 :
Our estimator (with default settings) estimate monthly expenses for a single person at 1,605.75lei and for four person family at 5,583.05lei
So....u actually can live conformable in 4 whit 1,300$ cuz that is almost 4,550 lei.
Being lived by 7,000 students...ho mostly know English i guess for a time English will be fine.

I am an American planning on retiring in Sibiu within the next year. Can anyone tell me about the expat community there, and if there are many Americans or other English speakers there? I do plan to learn the language after I get there and hope to make some Romanian friends, but just wondering if mostly English is a problem for a short while. Also, I understand from others that $1,300 USD a month is enough to live fairly comfortably for one person. Finally, are there any English speaking Romanians reading this that I may contact to discuss Sibiu and Romania? Thank you!
