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.
#Anonymous on Jan 16, 2018 :
2 things cheap in Romania:
- Houses
- Salaries (way down)

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!
