Hello, Listeners! Let's practice of using "Legyen szíves" with Hungarian verbs!

Szia Marnix,


'Legyen szíves' and 'Légy szíves' both mean 'Please'


'Legyen szíves' is a formal way of asking someone to do something.

Example:

- Legyen szíves hozzon nekem egy pohár vizet! /Please, bring me a glass of water.

- Köszönöm! / Thank you!

- Szívesen! / Your welcome!


'Légy szíves' is the informal way

Example:

- Légy szíves hozz nekem egy pohár vizet! / Please, bring me a glass of water

- Köszönöm! / Thank you!

- Szívesen! / Your welcome!


Thanks for your question!


Jó tanulást! 😉

I'm guessing that if "Legyen szíves" and "szívesen" resemble, that is not a coincidence. Can anyone explain what Legyen/legy means and szivés and how they combine? Thank you

Dear Linda,


Thanks for your comment!


1. Szeretem means literally "I like". For example: Szeretem a csokoládét. would be "I like chocolate."

2. Szeretnék is in a conditional form and means literally "I would like." For ex. "Szeretnék egy teát." means "I would like a tea."

3. Kérek means simply "I ask for". "Kérek egy kávét." would literally mean "I ask for a coffee." or "A coffee please."

It's usually more polite to use "kérek szépen" (kindly) instead of "kérek" which can be too familiar.


If you need any more help, please don't hesitate!


Best,

Hi - what is the difference between Szeretem, Szeretnek and Kerek in everyday usage? They all seem to mean "I would like"? Are they all polite enough to be used everywhere? Thank you, Linda

Hi Rene,


Kérem and legyen szíves are both correct here.

Kérem is "please" and legyen szíves is "would you be so kind."


You can pick either :smile:

Sziastok,

I have a question from the notes:

1. Kérem nyissa ki az ajtót. (formal) "Please open the door."

2. Legyen szíves nyissa ki "Please open it"


Why is the action verb "nyissa" sometimes used with kérem and other times with "legyen szíves"?


Köszönöm.
