Lesson focus

In Hungary, there are many delicious dishes! We've already covered how to order them, but now it's time to learn how to eat them! However, that is not always so straightforward. In today's lesson, we'll learn how to ask, "How do you eat this?"
In Hungarian, "How do you eat this?" is: Ezt hogy kell enni?
Let's break it down by syllable: Ezt hogy kell en-ni?
Now, let's hear it once again: Ezt hogy kell enni?
The first word ezt means "this."
Then we have hogy, which means, "how."
Let's hear it one more time. hogy.
Then you have kell, which means, "must"
kell, kell.
The last word should be familiar, enni means "to eat."
Literally, this means, "this how must eat."
Now, while most of the Hungarian dishes are quite straightforward, homemade cooking can get you more complicated dishes. Use when in doubt. Ezt hogy kell enni?
Finally, we will talk about something that may come in handy for everyone who doesn't like hot things. Hungarian cuisine is known for being spicy. While it's usually not as spicy as Indian food, it can come as shock for the unprepared.
The question "Is this hot?" in Hungarian is: Ez csípős?
The first word ez means, "this."
Let's hear it one more time. ez.
Next, we have csípős, which in English is "hot, spicy."
csí-pős, csípős.
All together, we have: Ez csípős?
Ez csípős? "Is this spicy?"


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.
"How do you eat this?" - Ezt hogy kell enni?
Ezt hogy kell enni?
Ezt hogy kell enni?
"Is this hot?" - Ez csípős?
Ez csípős?
Ez csípős?
