    It would be nice to learn more about Hungary. I don’t really know much about them.

    I think Elnezest or Excuse me would be most helpful since you can use it to catch people’s attention to ask direction. I remember when I was in Paris before we were also thought several phrases in case we got lost.

    That’s a very useful post. The first in college, the first thing I learnt from my new friends from all over the country was to say ‘I don’t know’ in all languages!!! Lolz!
    Btw, the last sentence on when to & when not to use is very funny!!

    Exactly, I have heavily relied upon that phrase!

    Hungary is very rich in culture. Debrecen and Budapest are two cities that I highly recommend 🙂

    These phrases will serve as a remembrance to the places we’ve been through. I haven’t really travel a lot because of financial constraint but will remember words if I have a chance.

    Hungarian is such a difficult language. I remember once I was there and has a little language phrasebook with me. Oh my, I tried to ask a local for the train station but no way I came even close to pronounce this correctly. So funny 🙂

    I always try to learn a few phrases when I visit new places, but I am not sure I could remember how to pronounce all of these, although it wont stop me trying!

  • January 30, 2016 at 7:13 pm

    hahahah! I get you, its not an easy language to read, write or learn!

  • February 1, 2016 at 3:44 pm

    Out of curiosity, I tried to pronounce these phrases. Oh well, I suspect that I would have to practice over and over again before having enough courage to say them in front of any Hungarian person. Hungarian such an interesting language and so different than any other European one that I heard so far. “Hogy Vagy” looks cool. I just have to learn to say it properly :).

    I know right ?! I had to practice hard myself, but the Hungarians really appreciate your efforts for trying to learn their language. I think they know that its super hard!

  • February 27, 2016 at 1:19 am

    The phrases are really helpful for travelers. It is important to be able to interact with locals and not assume everyone will know your language.

  • February 27, 2016 at 8:18 pm

    This is definitely helpful to people who are planning to visit Hungary. I’ve never been there and I could use this in the future!

  • March 7, 2016 at 3:54 pm

    Thank you! I always wish I could speak the language of every country I go to, it makes things so much easier and interactions more authentic. This is super helpful!
