Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody!
Do you know how to say 'I love you' in Hungarian? In this lesson, you'll learn three different ways to say 'I love you' and a special phrase for Valentine's Day.
Let’s start with the most common phrase.
Szeretlek.
[slowly] Szeretlek.
"I love you."
This phrase is direct. You should use it only when you're confessing your love.
If you want to be less direct, you can use this phrase.
Olyan sokat jelentesz nekem.
[slowly] Olyan sokat jelentesz nekem.
It means "You mean so much to me."
Now if you want to be more romantic in expressing your love for someone, you can say this phrase.
Szavakkal nem lehet leírni irántad érzett szerelmemet.
[slowly] Szavakkal nem lehet leírni irántad érzett szerelmemet.
It means "Words cannot describe my love for you."
Now you know three different ways to say 'I love you' in Hungarian! And here's one more. What if you want to spend Valentine's Day with someone special? In that case, you can say...
Velem töltenéd a Valentin napot?
[slowly] Velem töltenéd a Valentin napot?
It means "Would you like to spend Valentine's day with me?"
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what we've learned. Listen to the expression and repeat after me.
"I love you."
Szeretlek.

Well done! [pause] Here's a fun fact! Do you know Valentine's day is also celebrated as the "name day" for some people in Hungary?
Hungary is a country that celebrates “name days.” By this tradition, each day of the year is connected to a certain name. On that day, people with that name will celebrate it as a special day, similar to their birthday. February 14 is the day of "Bálint," which is the Hungarian counterpart of Valentine.
