Speaking Hungarian.  Or not.

We had our first culture class last night.  One of the things we did was to go around in a circle and say something that had been particularly hard for us, and them something that was especially rewarding.  For many of us, including me, the language barrier was the most difficult thing so far.  It has been very frustrating for me at times to be unable to say simple phrases like “excuse me” and “you’re welcome.”  I have learned these things now, but for a long time after arriving here I felt like a total clod a lot of the time.
