    Thanks for the lesson! Do you mean sátálni or sétálni?

    Also, I would love it if you also had audio files for the longer sentences and not just the word of the day. Thanks again.

      Hi Kristin,

      You are absolutely right, we meant “sétálni“ and not “sátálni”!
      Thanks for the hint! (We just corrected it).

      About the audio files for the longer sentences: this is a actually a really good idea! We will think about it (main problem is that we are currently a little short on time 🙂 ).

      Have fun and enjoy learning Hungarian!

      All the best,
      Juli & Flo
