As is fairy...perhaps a little more silent on the j (y) :-) Or...when I say 'my husband' (ferjem) I say 'fairy em'.

I have been told to always say édes anyós, never just anyós ! Maybe it's in the tone of the voice when talking about the mother-in-law?

Maybe it is because anyós has the 'ny' sound?

Default Re: Language thread - words,expressions and translations.

I was taught that 'ny' fits into the same mojo as 'sz', 'dsz', 'gy' etc etc they can all be considered to be a single letter and when used in conjunction with each other are always pronounced the same... If your nyolc works and sounds right to locals then the 'ny' is identical in 'asony' and any other word you see it in

In my neck of the woods "ferj" is pronounced as "ferry" and the "ny" in Hungarian is pronounced in the same way as it is in the English word "lanyard".

Did any of you try to take a systematic way to start to learn Hungarian as this article recommends?

Well, for any of you that are interested I took the ECL Hungarian Language exam yesterday. It is beginner level...but I found it quite tough all the same.

Having said that I would highly recommend it for those of you who would like to take exams to test how proficient you are (not that I am of course...but I needed something to focus me).

The complex exam consists of the following:

Writing, Listening, and an Oral exam...but you can get certificates for each separately.

If there is an interest, I can make a short post about what each entailed.
