Mivel csak az „you” szót használjuk angolul, jó lenne, ha a példamondatokban mindig „formális” és „nem formális” kifejezést használunk.


Der förmliche Satz: „Zeigen Sie mir bitte...“, heißt auf Ungarischen: „Legyen szíves megmutatni“. Der nicht förmliche Satz „Zeig mir bitte...“, dagegen heißt: „Legy szíves megmutatni.“ Da wir auf Englisch nur „you“ verwenden, wäre es gut, bei den Beispielsätzen immer: „förmlich“ und „nicht förmlich“ anzugeben.


The German formal sentence: „Zeigen Sie mir bitte...” is in Hungarian: „Legyen szíves megmutatni”. The German non-formal sentence „Zeig mir bitte...”, on the other hand is: „Legy szíves megmutatni.” Since we only use "you" in English, it would be good to always state "formal" and "not formal" in the example sentences.

Hi Mary,

You're right!

'Cash' means 'készpénz'.

If you don't know a word, it is very useful to know how to ask.

'How do you say.......... in Hungarian?' means 'Hogy van magyarul, hogy.........?'


You'll find lessons after clicking on 'Lessons' in the upper toolbar.

You can complete them whenever you want.


If you have further questions, feel free to ask.
