Lesson 7 brings us a dialogue between two old friends, Csaba and Katalin, who unexpectedly run into each other in a restaurant after not having met for a long time. Katalin wants to have a drink with Csaba, but he has a surprise for her!
See below for the script for this lesson’s material and the new vocabulary words. See how much of it you can memorize for the next lesson, as I’m sure we’ll have another review waiting for you.

I am going to Hungary for a year as an exchange stundent in August with Rotary, there are very few resources for learning Hungarian and I am using most of them. Your podcast has been an very helpful tool with pronunciation and vocabulary. Thanks a bundle!
We’re glad you find it useful, Nicole! Enjoy your stay in Hungary and I hope you’ll be able to use the Hungarian from this podcast.

You guys are the best! I’ve learned so much from the 7 lessons. My dad, Ivan Tamas Fuezy, escaped from Hungary after the 1956 Revolution. He has taught me lots of words, and I have visited Hungary three times. I’ve only been able pick up words in Hungarian here and there. I’ve also been able to say one or two sentences as well. Now, I can say more expressions than I had been able to, thanks to you guys! I really appreciate your podcasts. My dad past away in 2003, and I haven’t been able to learn any more words or expressions. Now I can. Thanks again!
Eniko Ilyes-DeMarco says
I grew up speaking Hungarian. Both my parents are from Hungary. I don’t get to speak the language often anymmore, so I am delighted with the chance to hear and practice Hungarian. Also, becaues I never learned Hungarian in school, your explanations of grammar are valuable. Keep up the good work – we enjoy your friendly banter, it makes the lesson even more enjoyable! And my husband just sprinkled me with perfume!
Jon and Eniko, thanks for your comments. We’re really pleased that you’re both enjoying the podcast so much. It gives us real motivation to continue doing this when we read these kinds of comments!
