Georgeta Orlovschi Didn’t Let Her Son Forget Romanian
During an interview, Georgeta’s son Stan mentioned how he was still able to speak Romanian so fluently; finding his words in Romanian while the conversation keeps playing.
When asked how his Romanian was still in good shape, Stan answered by saying he has all his mother, Orlovschi to thank for. The Captain America actor explained if it were him alone, he wouldn’t have been able to speak Romanian.
Thankfully Stan had his mother and father who didn’t allow him to forget his native language. The now 39-year-old actor also said he still speaks in Romanian while talking to his father.
In the hindsight, Stan’s practice of speaking Romanian with his mother and father created difficulty for him to talk in English without an accent. He said he remembered that there was a year during which he spoke English defensively. And the fact that his mother continued to speak to him in Romanian didn’t help much, either.
