What is the difference between Hogy vagy and hogy van?

July 26, 2016


Hogy van is a very formal way of asking this question, we usually use it when we're talking to elder people, someone we don't know or important people, who are in a higher position than we are in any way (: Meanwhile, hogy vagy is used among mostly family members and friends.

there is no "hány éves van". .. i cant explain with EN exapmles soo in german: Hány éves vagy?/ Mennyi idős vagy? means -Wie alt bist du? ..The 2. sentence you mean(i think) is the :Wie alt sind sie? ..

Te = You Ön = You, in formal version. Hány éves vagy (Te)? Hány éves (Ön)? (Formal v) Te hány éves vagy? Ön hány éves? (Fv) :)

What does "Maga Hogy van?" mean?

July 6, 2016


It means the same thing, i.e. a formal how are you. On the other hand, I'd say it would only be used when there are more people around and you are trying to indicate (also non-verbally) a specific person you are addressing. It also feels a bit colder than asking "Ön hogy van?"

Yes, it means "How are YOU(formal) (implied: not someone else)"

There are some mistakes here. ''How are you?'' in English applies in every situation, as there is no difference. In Hungarian there is different every time. This should be corrected here, as the sentence ''How are you?'' in this case, may be applied in both Hungarian cases for it can be interpreted as such.

And what about 'te hogy vagy'? What does 'te' mean?

you ... hogy vagy ? = how are you? in our laguage we dont say the you..cuz it is useless because of the inflection.. example.. how am i? = hogy vagyok[én]? hogy are you ?=hogy vagy[te]? i hope it was clear xd
