Szerintem – I think



I think / In my opinion


You can useszerintem“  very well as a conversional connector at the beginning of a sentence, such as „Well,  I think…“. It‘s not as strong and formal as the English „in my opinion“.

You can also use it when you need a few seconds to debate your answer to a question in your head: „So when do you think you have time tonight?“ – „Szerintem… I can meet you at 8PM“.

szer: tool, mean (noun), remedy  (Imagine „szerintem“ as „my means of knowledge“. It‘s literal meaning would be something like According to my tools of knowledge.“
