Lesson focus

In this lesson, we'll continue to learn more phrases that will help you with basic etiquette. Hungarians are very hospitable. They use phrases of gratitude quite often. Even though you may not get the chance to use Szívesen, the phrase for "You're welcome," during your trip to Hungary, there's a very good chance you'll hear it. So let's have a closer look at it!
In Hungarian, "You're welcome" is Szívesen.
Let's break it down by syllable: Szí-ves-en.
Now let's hear it once again: Szívesen
The word szívesen means, "You're welcome."
Let's break down this word and hear it one more time: Szívesen
You can also respond to someone who has thanked you by using two very similar expressions.
They are Nincs mit, which means, "it's nothing," and Nagyon szívesen, which means, "you're very welcome."
Nincs mit
Let’s break it down by syllable: Nincs mit
Now let's hear it once again: Nincs mit
Nagyon szívesen
Let’s break it down by syllable: Nagyon szívesen
Now let's hear it once again: Nagyon szívesen
You probably remember nagyon from our last lesson; it means "very" and it makes the phrase more polite and formal here.
Remember, Nincs mit means, "it's nothing," and Nagyon szívesen means, "you're very welcome."
Of the expressions we have seen, please keep in mind that we can use szívesen and Nincs mit in any situation, formal or informal, while Nagyon szívesen tends to show up in more formal occasions.


Okay, to close out today's lesson, we'd like for you to practice what you've just learned. I'll provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you're responsible for shouting it aloud. You'll have a few seconds before I give you the answer; so, sok szerencsét, which means "good luck" in Hungarian.
"You're welcome." - Szívesen
"It's nothing." - Nincs mit.
Nincs mit.
Nincs mit.
"You're very welcome." - Nagyon szívesen.
Nagyon szívesen.
Nagyon szívesen.
