Have you ever taken the 4-6 tram in Budapest? It’s actually two different tram lines that both start at Széll Kálmán tér in the Buda part of the city, and circle around Pest before returning to Buda, where the no. 6 line ends at Móricz Zsigmond körtér, and the no. 4 line ends at Újbuda-központ.
But they share the track for most of the long trip around (roughly) central Budapest.
If you’ve taken the 4-6 tram, did you understand the announcements on the loudspeaker? If not, we’ll help you decode it!
We’ve recorded three announcements and will teach them to you in this lesson, as well as a new nationality and a Hungarian idiom.
Audio for Lesson 12 (formal speech):
Recordings heard on the tram:
“A Király utca következik.”
“A Rákóczi tér következik. Átszállhatnak az M4-es Metróra.”
“Az Oktogon következik. Az ajtók a bal oldalon nyílnak. Átszállhatnak az M1-es Metróra.”
You might hear in the podcast that I’ve got a bit of a cold as my voice sounds a little different. Sorry about that, and I think we’ll probably take next week off so I can recover properly!
The PDF file below contains the written audio and vocabulary, and the MP3 file has the audio for Lesson 12. Download both of them below, or subscribe on iTunes. Thanks for listening and leave a comment below!
