Hey, Luis, Hungarian is awesome :D You should definitely study it. I'm studying on Magyar OK and I'm on 3rd set of exercise books!
I also study with conversation partners, twice a week. Hungarians are adorable with foreigners!

Anyway, did you enjoy Budapest?
I'm also going to Hungary on the 7th of July with my husband and the 3 kids, I can't wait! 8-)

Is there a difference between "learn" and "study"? Cause I feel like you're making a distinction here, but I'm not sure, Vijay.

Yes, I know they can be used either synonymously, or to indicate a difference. I'm just not sure of Vijay's intended meaning.

Yes, it's a beautiful city. I enjoy most cities I visit anyway, I'm not too picky ;)

This is purely anedoctal, but I didn't really get that impression. Some even tried to scam us a couple of times (increasing prices after figuring out we were foreigners, not giving the correct change, etc.). But I believe I would probably have a different experience outside of the more "touristy" areas.

You can study a language and not learn anything... :P

Yes. I wasn't sure whether he was saying he'd never even consider studying Hungarian or simply that he'd never get to a point where he speaks it.

Wanderlusting for Hindi/Urdu for no reason.

There aren't that many languages I have wanderlusted for during the last few years. Hindi/Urdu, Persian, German, perhaps Indonesian -- that's about it I guess? I have a chance to learn all of them in my lifetime. :P

Wanderlust is a degenerative ailment. Expect the symptoms to accrue.
