”When walking around Budapest, you are ceaselessly bombarded with signs of all kinds – billboards, posters and, obviously, street signs. As Hungarian is like few other languages, you have absolutely no clue to their meaning. After taking the intro lesson with Fungarian, I still have no clue to their meaning but I now know how to pronounce the street names and every sign I meet now becomes a fun challenge. I walk all over the city and I don’t allow myself to walk further until I’ve said the street name out loud. It may sound nerdy but it actually makes me feel a closer bond to this magnificent city.
When arriving in Budapest, make sure to take this lesson! Your stay will be so much more fun and you will also get valuable insights into what to do here
