My girlfriend and I were sure to book a one hour Fungarian session to take place within hours of arriving in Budapest as we wanted to be able to use basic common courtesy during our stay. We were certainly not disappointed! We were met by Balázs in the Zenit cafe opposite the synagogue, and from the beginning our lesson was fun and informative. We learned basic words and phrases such as "please"' " thank you" and " hello/goodbye", as well as useful insights into the culture and history of Budapest.
The hour flew by and was filled with great tips on where to visit, cultural information and we were given space to suggest what we wanted to learn.
We would both wholeheartedly recommend Fungarian to anyone who would like to learn basic Hungarian for their visit, Because although we didn't get it right every time, you can tell that the locals appreciate your efforts. If we visit again we will definitely attend another session.
One thing we would suggest would be to check your conformation email thoroughly, as we waited in a cafe a few doors down that had a 'Fungarian' sign above it, rather than the Zenit cafe as our email stated. (To be honest this was kind of a relief as the place we were in initially was not that nice!) This was totally our fault and did not detract from an unforgettable experience.
And again, thank you Balázs!
