GET D!RTY!

Next time youre in Hungary or just chattin in Hungarian with your friends, drop the textbook formality and bust out with expressions they never teach you in school, including:

• cool slang

• funny insults

• explicit sex terms

• raw swear words

Dirty Hungarian teaches the casual expressions heard every day on the streets of Hungary:

Whats up?

Mi a helyzet?

Your boyfriend is hot shit.

Állat jó pasi a barátod.

Dude, Im so wasted.

Öcsém, ugy betintáztam.

I gotta take a dump.

Mennem kell szarni.

Go fuck yourself!

Menj a halál faszára!

Can I get a blowey?

Lecidázol?

Id love to hit that.

Szeretném megdöngölni.

Synopsis:

GET D!RTY

Nothing is censored in Dirty Hungarian. Invaluable to those traveling to Hungary, the book is chock-full of native banter that helps readers make friends at the local csárda (tavern) and convince the waitress they can handle the hot paprika in their halászlé (fisherman's stew). It even includes enough insults and swear words to offend every person in Hungary without even mentioning that the Austrians are better at water polo. Next time you're traveling or just chattin' in Hungarian with your friends, drop the textbook formality and bust out with expressions they never teach you in school, including:

• Cool slang

• Funny insults

• Explicit sex terms

• Raw swear words

About the Author

Andras, June 25, 2012 (view all comments by Andras)
My parents are Hungarian and I'm fairly fluent in the language but this book showed me swear words and dirty sayings I never knew existed. From a language and grammar standpoint it's accurate so you can learn Hungarian from it. From a comedic standpoint it's funny as hell. It includes everyday phrases for getting around Hungary and is a very good guidebook to Hungarian culture and even has some history. But even if you're not going to Budapest it's a good little book to have around if you want to rag on your buds in Hungarian, a weird and wonderful language.
