Hungarian is a pretty hard language to learn. Some say it is even harder than Chinese. Well, you have to figure it out. When you’re on a beer bike adventure in Budapest, you will need to communicate with the locals. Most people can speak English, mostly youngsters, but here’s a short dictionary for you to make good use of!
Hungarians simply love when you speak their language. They appreciate the effort and know very well that it is a hard language for foreigners to grasp. For pronunciation, check the online dictionaries or google translate! Let’s see a few situations when they can come handy:
Két sört kérek! – Two beers please! Probably the most useful sentence in a pub, it needs no explanation. Kérek, meaning please, puts a polite tone to it, so it is highly recommended to use it!
Még egy kört kérek! – Another round, please! Closely connected to the previous one, simplifies a lot of things.
Készpénzzel fizetek! – I’ll pay in cash! Another thing you will need to know, whether you need a hamburger to soak the alcohol in, or if you’re ordering for a ticket somewhere.
Nem beszélek magyarul. – I don’t speak Hungarian. Self explanatory, can be quite helpful.
Mit iszol? – What would you like to drink? Whenever making friends or trying to hit on local girls, it is a key phrase to speak. The answer will be easy to understand, or just point at the thing.
Szeretlek – I love you. There’s no better thing to say to anyone than this. Make good use of it!
A XY hotelban lakom! - I stay at XY hotel. Has a lot of potential uses, might come in handy.
Bazd meg! – Fuck you! Well, not the nicest thing to say, but if you want to give a little voice to your anger, this might be a good choice. Be aware that Hungarian is very rich in swear words so you might get 10 or more in return.
