Hungarian/Amerian Wedding

I am hosting some visitors from Hungary for a wedding this weekend. They do not speak English, or better stated, I do not speak Hungarian. Could someone tell me how to say "Welcome" in Hungarian so I can put a sign out for their arrival? Thanks!

If you have visitors that will be living with you (even for a short period) a English-Hungarian dictionary would appear to be a wise purchase. It may actually make them feel more "welcome."

I could actually go buy the book for you, deliver it to your house, sit in your living room and translate, and enjoy the company, but I have work. By the way, if you are not willing to shell out $12, check out the big building with the sign that says "LIBRARY." Gosh, visiting this sight while at work is great for stress relief! ;-)

Liz - please disregard Lou cattiness.

Here's a website that may help you:

http://dict.sztaki.hu/english-hungarian

Some basic phrases:
Jo napot (formal): hello
pronounced: yo naw pawt

Isten hozott: welcome
pronoucned: ish ten ho zot

Just Enough booklets - Hungarian, Italian, Spanish, etc. - are $4.95 and can be found at any B&N.

If I did this right, the above cite also contains other links, inclusing to distionaries.

By the way, I know most book stores don't have Hungarian dictionaries.

We had the same problems, but the son, spoke a little German.
The kids looked at TV.
The teenie used my computer.
And the parents talkied to us with hand and feet after a couple of whiskies and wine. We all got quite drunk and it was great fun. I still do not understand a word of their language......

Thanks for all the help. We are "sort of communicating" and it is great fun. Spending time with these people makes me feel sublimly lucky for what I have.Wish I still had young children at home so they could learn from this experience.
