    Would you be able to use your Hungarian to buy a monthly transportation pass? In Lesson 17, we can listen to an authentic recording made "in the field," in which Steven purchases a monthly pass from a cashier.



    This lesson will show you how to buy a monthly transportation pass in person, and we also learn some useful vocabulary to make a simple business transaction in Hungarian.



    What does it sound like to use your Hungarian in real life? How do Hungarians respond to you? And what the heck is an "áfás számla"?? All of these questions will be answered in this lesson!

Fantastic

Great podcast for beginners. I am learning and have found this very easy, simple to learn style and very engaging. A good find for a tough language to learn.

Excellent Hungarian Podcast

I'm so glad Steve and Györgyi are back, with excellent content once more. The latest episode (4-6 tram) is really very useful for travellers and people like me - just trying to understand what my Hungarian wife is yelling at me.

Excellent and well-put-together podcast. Perfect for tourists holidaying in Hungary, just to learn the basics.
