I found this very entertaining, but a little difficult at my level.

I also think this is a great way to learn how people really speak. Learning sentences like "A postás siet" while helpful for grammar, does not exactly translate well into real world use.

I would love to find a good source of videos, perhaps older American sitcoms like Friends or "How I met your mother" that are dubbed in Hungarian, but have English subtitles. I think watching old favorites like these would be great for learning real speaking behaviors.

Here is "How I Met Your Mother" Season 1 Episode 1 in Hungarian, unfortunately, with no subs. I hope you can figure out how to find further episodes.

I checked out various pages, but I could find none, where it was uploaded in Hungarian with English subs.

I know this is not what you asked, but maybe it is better to watch something that's not dubbed. Hungarian dub is not what it used to be. Golden life is a remake of a Finnish drama, and is available with english subtitles.

This looks very interesting, and I will check it out.

The reason I defaulted to looking for classic sitcoms that are dubbed is because the context and understanding of the situation/dialog is already somewhat there. Even if the dubbing is bad, as long as its close to the original context, it helps.

Regardless, köszönöm!
