I learned English using my free time. Some part is learned in school, the other part is learned using TV, books and video games.
I am aware of the quantity of Romania-in-the-Balkans mistakes. Fact is that Romania is extremely close to the Balkan mountains, that is why this error is common place. But Romania has the Carpathians mountains, which are of a different age than the Balkans, so geographically, Romania does not adhere to the Balkan mountains or peninsula. Geo-politically though, Romania has a history within the Balkan peninsula countries, which may be the reason of this "integration".
