Have you ever visited Hungarian restaurants? If not, what would you like to have there?

I remember going to different restaurants and not having any clue of how the dishes may taste like. I fell in love with the Kelkáposzta ❤️️ and I can't wait to go back to Hungary and eat it.

This lessons are reminding me of the beautiful language I learned once but somehow forgotten.

Köszi szépen mindenkinek,

Szia Lily,

As you said, Hány fő? (literally translated by how many heads?) is used in a large variety of context, but usually in a polite conversation including clients, customers or visitors of a reception, events, restaurant, mariage etc. simply because "fő" is very polite.

Hány főre? is mostly used for a reservation.

Hány főre lesz a foglalás? - The reservation will be for how many people?

Another use can be in cooking recipes.

Hány kiló hús kell 5 főre? - How many kg of meat is needed for 5 person?

If you have other questions, please don't hesitate to send a comment!

Hi Rene!

Haha, Robin asked great questions, right? :innocent:

And don't worry! I'm sure you will be able to remember more than you think!

But it's true, it's a lot easier with sign language :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

If you have any questions, please let us know!

This sentence is completely impossible for me to remember:

Szeretnék asztalt foglalni ma estére. :disappointed:

If I ever make it to Hungary, I may have a friend make the phone call, because even if I can memorize all that, I won't understand what they reply. :open_mouth:

At least in person, I can use sign language. :laughing:

Szia Robin!

I am very happy that you find Hungarian language so interesting! :wink: (And you make me think about the secrets of Hungarian...)

Answering your question:

Hány fő? - How many people?

Hány főre? - (Table) For how many people?

So it is nothing to do with tenses.

Hányan vannak? - How many people is in your party? (formal question)

Informal would be - Hányan vagytok?

Hope I could help!:wink:

Várom a további kérdéseidet!

Szia Gergő, In lesson 11 we learned "Hány fő" for how many people, and the number suffix -en or -an. In lesson 12 the suffix was őre. Is that because we're talking about a future event and lesson 11 was in the present? Köszönöm szépen. Also, in another restaurant scenario, Hányan vannak is used. If the question word different because in the first it's asking for a 3rd person headcount and the second it's asking for "you"? Am I thinking too much? :smile: Robin
