Are there any Hungarians living anywhwere near The Borough? I've lived in Hungary for nearly 2 years, and have studied the language. I would like to continue to practise it if possible.

My dad is Hungarian but I can't speak it either...and he's gone back to Hungary to live now too. I learnt when I was little but that was a long time ago and have forgotten most of it. Even when I go back I find it incredibly difficult to pick up. I have been told it is a very complicated language to learn.

I do find it difficult, although I studied with a proper teacher. The structure of the language is totally different to English, and the vocabulary is like nothing on earth! Ah well, just thought I'd ask....

There is a Hungarian Cultural Centre in Covent Garden, which is not quite SE1, but they may be able to help.

I have a Hungarian friend who speaks excellent English. She lives in OKR - and I have sent her the link for here. Someone owes me a Goulash! :p

I am also Hungarian but, following the death of my mother, no longer have any cause to speak the language which is a real shame as it was my first language until the age of five!! I would love to try and re- learn the language so if anyone is thinking of setting up a Hungarian language group, I would love to go !!

Thanks to everyone for their replies, which I have only recently read, because I've been away. ( To Hungary, in fact!)
I know about the Cultural Centre, and have written to them, but they only told me about courses you can do at the University of Westminster. I don't want to do a course, because I'm not working at the moment, so don't want to pay out. I was hoping just to be able to meet someone for informal chats in Hungarian, just for practice. ( I'd be happy to buy the coffee/drinks !!)
My hungarian friends tell me that wherever you go in the world, there's always a Hungarian to be found, so I'll have to keep looking!
