John Campbell is welcomed in Sibiu. Many adults speak English, even in shops you will have no trouble in speaking English. Everibody is speaking ROMGLEZA, Romanian and English mixed language. You will also find a job here. Sibiu employers are desperated to get new employees. Houses are cheap. Many romanian citizens came to Sibiu from nearby areas. So the city is full.
