I thought it was so funny when my friend took me to a bar so I could have a ''soft drink'' - which was cherry pálinka and the exact opposite of what I was expecting as something ''soft''!
But what I would like to have here in the US is Unicum. It's not available at all here!
Then you (or somebody) may find useful that it is "szilvapálinka" in Hungarian :D Pronounce it like "Silva" in Spanish or Portughese (and "pálinka" in Hungarian ;) )
(This name always make me remember two great men: José Silva (inventor of a technique called mind control) and Ayrton Senna [da Silva]. May them rest in peace...)
Nowadays yes, but we are more proud of our wines. We have many wine regions that are thought to be "world famous" (at least all over the country) and some wines like Tokaji or Kékfrankos are traded as traditional Hungarian wines. Unfortunately our old wine grapes were destroyed by the great phylloxera or "wine pest" plague and some more resistent but less unique types were planted. But even Buda (the mountaineous side of our capital) had extended wineyards and they were completely destroyed by the plague and never planted again.
Is it me, or does this level keep not indicating new words when you hover over it? I'm pretty sure it still should, so I don't know why this is the third word not indicated. It's pretty low priority, I know, but it gets me down everytime I have no clue of a word even though the grey colour of the word says I should.
Bad choice of county. No non-English speaking person will know how to pronounce 'Gloucestershire' (Gloster) or 'Worcestershire' (Wooster) or 'Leicestershire' (Lester) or 'Warwickshire' (Warrick), plus several others: they are all wayward pronunciations. Just 'shire' by itself will do.
The Hungarian course does not use text-to-speech (TTS, "robot voice").
Instead, they recorded a real human being -- but only a limited number of sentences and not individual words. (And no "turtle speed", because that would mean twice the number of recordings they would have had to pay for.)
