Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Michael: In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Hungarian learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native speaker. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then, through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.

Lesson focus

Michael: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question Do you like Hungarian food? In Hungarian this is
Lena: Szereted a magyar konyhát?
Michael: The first word in the question is
Lena: szereted
Michael: meaning “you like” in English.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) szereted
Michael: Listen again and repeat.
Lena: szereted
{Pause}
Michael: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Lena: a
Michael: meaning “the”.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) a
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: a
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Lena: szereted a
{pause}
Michael: And after that
Lena: magyar
Michael: meaning “Hungarian.”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) magyar
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: magyar
{Pause}
Michael: And after that
Lena: konyhát
Michael: meaning “kitchen” but this can be used when you’re asking about food.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) konyhát
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: konyhát
Michael: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Lena: Szereted a magyar konyhát?
{pause}
Michael: Master the following pattern and responses to the question Do you like Hungarian food??
Lena: Igen, nagyon szeretem a gulyáslevest.
Michael: "Yes, I especially like goulash." Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Lena: (Slow) Igen, nagyon szeretem a gulyáslevest.
{pause}
Michael: To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
Lena: Nem, nem szeretem.
Michael: Which is like saying “No, I don't like it.” in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Lena: (Slowly) Nem, nem szeretem.
Michael: And one more time at normal speed:
Lena: Nem, nem szeretem.
Michael: Now let's break down our original response from the beginning. The first word:
Lena: Igen
Michael: means “yes.”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) Igen
Michael: Now repeat
Lena: Igen
{Pause}
Michael: And next
Lena: nagyon
Michael: meaning “especially”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) nagyon
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: nagyon
{Pause}
Michael: And next
Lena: szeretem
Michael: meaning “I like”.
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) szeretem
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: szeretem
{Pause}
Michael: And next
Lena: gulyáslevest
Michael: meaning “goulash”
Lena: (Slow, by syllable) gulyáslevest
Michael: Now repeat.
Lena: gulyáslevest
{Pause}
Michael: Listen to the speaker say, Yes, I especially like goulash., and then repeat.
Lena: Igen, nagyon szeretem a gulyáslevest.
{pause}
Michael: To use a different phrase, replace goulash with Hungarian fish soup.
Lena: halászlevet
Michael: Hungarian fish soup
Lena: (slow) halászlevet (regular) halászlevet
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Hungarian fish soup
Lena: Igen, nagyon szeretem a halászlevet.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace goulash. Say “Yes, I especially like Hungarian fish soup.”
{pause}
Lena: Igen, nagyon szeretem a halászlevet.
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace Hungarian fish soup with rolled cabbage.
Lena: töltött káposztát
Michael: rolled cabbage
Lena: (slow) töltött káposztát (regular) töltött káposztát
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with rolled cabbage
Lena: Igen, nagyon szeretem a töltött káposztát.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the word for Hungarian fish soup. Say Yes, I especially like rolled cabbage.
{pause}
Lena: Igen, nagyon szeretem a töltött káposztát.
Michael: To expand on the pattern, replace rolled cabbage with poppy seed strudel.
Lena: mákos rétest
Michael: poppy seed strudel
Lena: (slow) mákos rétest (regular) mákos rétest
Michael: Listen to the phrase again, this time with poppy seed strudel
Lena: Igen, nagyon szeretem a mákos rétest.
Michael: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the word for rolled cabbage. Say “Yes, I especially like poppy seed strudel.”
{pause}
Lena: Igen, nagyon szeretem a mákos rétest.

Szia Carol,


Köszönjük a hozzászólást. :wink:


Actually, I always surprise my international friends when I prepare gulyás in summer... For me, it's completely natural to eat soup and hot dishes in summer too!


The other thing is the sweet dishes.. like pasta with poppy and sugar (mákostészta)... Have you tried this one?:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Love it!


If you need any help for the recipes, please don't hesitate to send a comment! :thumbs:


Best,

Dorottya

Igen, szeretem a magyar konyhát! Nagyon szeretem a gulyáslevest és a töltött káposztát!


This lesson makes me so hungry!!!!

I had the great fortune to stay with a Hungarian family when I was in Budapest. I remember walking in after a hot day in the city and my hostess was standing at the stove stirring a hot pot. I thought I was too hot for hot soup, but then she said "gulyásleves" and I was so excited. I knew I would be having some no matter how hot I was. She also made töltött káposzta and it was so amazingly good. My family and I were treated to lots of amazing Hungarian food for the entire week. My hostess was an incredibly good cook.

She also made a delicious cold peach soup. I tried making some today from a recipe I found online in Hungarian. I don't think I got the recipe quite right, but I am going to keep trying.


Magyar konyhát finom!
