When do you use gyalogolni?


It is used only when you specifically want to indicate the mode of transportation.

"Sétálni" actually means "to take a walk", "to stroll".

For what English generally uses "walk", a better translation could be "menni", "to go".

"He walks in the store". - "Bemegy a boltba"
"He walks up to him" - "Odamegy hozzá"

But when you say "the restaurant is close by, let's walk", as opposed to driving, you would say "menjünk gyalog".

Yes, there are two versions: "gyalogolni" or "gyalog menni" (to go on foot).

"Én gyalog járok dolgozni" - "I walk to work".

Also, the sport "walking" is "gyaloglás" (a noun).


Thanks, but these examples really made my head go crazy


Please tell me what is diference between"walks and she is walking"?
