To find




Memory hook:

I have to find a really TALL And sLim girl.


Example sentences:

Tegnap találtam ezer forintot az utcán.

I found 1,000HUF on the street yesterday.

[Yesterday found-I thousand forint(acc.) the street-on.]


Aki keres, talál.

He that seeks, finds.
[Who seeks, finds.]


Related terms:

keres – to seek, to search

megtalál – to find something after searching for it. (See everything you need to know about the prefix “meg” here.)

elveszít – to lose (i.e. to not find)



Not to be confused with:

talán – maybe


See all the words “talál” is very similar to right here (funny example sentence included!)
