Missing topics in Hungarian from English ...

What I painfully miss in Hungarian from English are grammar informations and lessons about - indefinite person (like the German "man") - future tense - imperative - conditional / subjunctive - adverbs - comparative / superlative (adjectives)

To learn the new words and more grammar (future tense - imperative - conditional) you should try the reverse course, it's really good!

I looked up what would be the equivalent of the German "man". Usually, use the plural/3 conjugation and drop the subject, or use "az ember".

Future tense: Use the verb "fog" with the right conjugation + an infinitive verb.

Én enni fogok = I will eat

Te enni fogsz = you will eat

Ő enni fog = he/she will eat

mi enni fogunk = we will eat

ti enni fogtok = you will eat

ők enni fognak =they will eat

inni fogok = I will drink

látni fogok = I will see

menni fogok = I will go

It is a similar construction as in English, fog plays the role of will.

It can be tricky with preverbs:

Bemegyek a szobába = I enter the room.

Be fogok menni a szobába = I will enter the room.

comparative / superlative (adjectives)

Usually, comparative: adj+bb, superlative leg+ adj + bb

meleg, melegebb, legmelegebb =war, warmer, warmest

hideg, hidegebb, leghidegebb = cold, colder, coldest

új, újabb, legújabb = new, newer, newest

there are some irregular ones:

szép, szebb, legszebb = beautiful, more beautiful, most beautiful

kicsi, kisebb, legkisebb = small, smaller, smallest

Examples: Ő szebb mint én = She is more beautiful than me

A szék kisebb mint az asztal = the chair is smaller than the table.
