SHOULD I BRING A TRANSLATION PHRASE/DICTIONARY TO HUNGARY

Jump to last reply

From the older posts I've read, I get the impression that most Hungarian citizens don't know how or won't make an effort to speak English. Alright, if this is the case, should I bring a phrase and word dictionary that translates English to Hungarian? I speak French fluently but highly doubt that they speak this language as well. We'll need to communicate with the locals and I don't wish to be ignored if asking for directions, ordering food in restaurants, buying something in their shops etc., you get the idea. Thank you.

On another note, how does tipping work over there, Budapest. What percentage should be added to a restaurant bill, tipping taxi drivers, tipping hotel staff eg. porter, concierge, and maid services? Thank you.
