Re: Learn Hungarian Thread

Thanks guys for this useful info! You don't mind if I also help correct some of the English do you?

correct

"17:30 fél hat - half into the sixth hour"

reason

We use 24 and 12 hour clock both. But when we say time using negyed/fél/háromnegyed (quarter/half/three quarters) we use 12 hour clock only.
Ah, thanks, I see. In English we do the same thing. For 17:30 we would say "It's half past five" and never "half past 17".

Also, if you don't mind me saying, in English we put "both" a bit earlier in the sentence, not at the end, like this: "We use both 24 and 12 hour clocks."

This thread could become a language sharing thing for English and Hungarian speakers. I hope it stays alive for a while.

Re: Learn Hungarian Thread

I heard that Hungarian was second hardest in the anaivanovic.com forum
I now know why I am learning Spanish easily (because I speak English) and I can read some Russian (because I can read/write Greek)

Can someone (Hakapeszi, Gregorio, Ofen, mralas, ...) tell me simple phrases to start off?

One thing, what good to know, I think.

There are two kind of Hungarian, a formal and an informal.
We have to choose between them when we speak or write.

If you find phrases and examples online they can be formal or informal ones.

The main difference is saying 'you', but not only. We modify verbs too, so there is formal and informal version of the same verb.

for example

'How are you?"
informal: Hogy vagy (te)?
formal: Hogy van (maga)?

'Where are you came from?'
informal: 'Honnan jöttél (te)?'
formal: 'Honnan jött (maga)?'

and so on...

Re: Learn Hungarian Thread

That's useful to know. Like Cantonese, which is spoken very informally but tends to be written down in standard chinese (Mandarin). Most learners would probably sound too formal, since we tend not to learn a lot of informal language when first learning a new language. I wonder if there are any Hungarian cartoons or tv shows on the internet? With subtitles or something. That would be useful to learn how people actually talk in real life.

Re: Learn Hungarian Thread

Ági always says "Gyerünk!".

"Hogysmint" is very friendly, informal. But my favourite is: "Mi a helyzet?" - How you doin

But my question to native Hungarian speakers is, is this how you would use "nagyon jó"? (Apparently means "very good"). In English, we would say "Not bad, eh?" Would you use a different phrase to translate this?

Speaking of Gyerünk, I found this odd clip apparently from some Hungarian comedy of someone singing a version of "Come on baby light my fire"- Gyerünk baby játszunk .



I also found some episodes of You rang, My Lord? in Hungarian- thanks a lot to the uploader- but now I need to find some English scripts because there are no subtitles...

It's made by the greatest Hungarian music comedy band, Irigy Hónaljmirigy (sort IHM), they have a lot similar odd clips.



Original Romanian song


The IHM version is better I think
