A teacher can say when students don't behave: Maradjatok csendben vagy szétültetlek! Be quiet or I make you sit somewhere away from each other.
There are quite a few instances in the revision exercise of this module where perfectly sensible translations are not "the correct solution" or there is a problem with using British as opposed to American English. I am reporting them, in the hope that there will be some improvement.
All hail jzsuzsi! This sentence and its English translation offer some necessary insight into the differences between English and Hungarian. In this case, we get to see how Hungarian can use a single word (átül) to express what English does in two words (move over and sit). If we are going to learn Hungarian, we need this kind of translation. Literal, word-for-word translations will only yield confusion, and the comments here are ample proof of that. jzsuzsi dispels the confusion and gives us the real thing here. Let's hope there's more to come.
I rather thought that this would be an interesting place to visit. I can't make much sense of the English translation either. Átül = sits across or, as jzsuzsi says, moves over to sit somewhere else. But the actress is getting into the car, she isn't in it already and thus we have ba rather than ban. How, from a position outside of a car, can you sit across into a new sitting position? Was she sitting on a chair outside the car and was it from that sitting position that she moved? I picture an extremely famous actress on a sedan chair being decanted into a limousine.
