WELCOME TO THE DAILY MAGYAR SITE!
I started the page in January 2013 when I was studying for my state exam and I needed a little ‘air’. I’ve always been interested in languages and managed to learn quite a lot about them throughout the years. In the beginning I only compared and analysed them on paper, then on the computer, and finally, on Facebook, when on January 17, 2013 I created the Daily magyar FB page. This is how my first posts were born. Some weeks later I created a page on vKontakte and Twitter too. Then after a year of writing posts I had about 1000 likers on FB and decided to collect all the posts for them, so I created this blog on January 23, 2014, like a first year anniversary present. 😀 In one long night I posted all the 450+ posts I had back then, put them into different categories and shared it with the people. 🙂
On May 2, 2015 I started the Daily magyar’s Pinterest page, on October 14, 2015 the Daily magyar’s Tumblr page and on February 8, 2016 the Daily magyar’s Instagram page.
I post the same posts to each site, but some of you do not use social sites, so I thought I would make this blog, that is opened for everyone with an internet connection. 🙂
The good thing I like about the blog is, that you can search between the posts. All the posts can be found in the ‘Hungarian words‘ category and also in one of the 20+ subcategories. You can also try the search section if you have a word you cannot find in your favourite dictionary. Maybe it will be on the blog… if not, send that word, phrase or sentence to me and I will translate it for you to English, Finnish, Russian, Slovak or Czech 🙂
My name is Gabriel, and I was born into a Hungarian family in the south of Central Slovakia in 1989. Finished my studies in June 2016 with a Master’s Degree in the field of Applied Informatics with the specialization of Graphic Design in the Studio of Graphic Design and Multimedia (AGD+M) at the Faculty Of Informatics at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic (EU).
Even though I work as a Graphic Designer, I still spend some time on my other hobby that I love, which is foreign languages. I speak fluently Hungarian, Slovak, Czech and English. I am advanced in Finnish, intermediate in Russian and basic in French and Spanish.
As a teenager I used to make remixes and mash-ups, later I started creating some art at school and in my free time. You can find some of my art works if you search for linkingabo, what is my nickname I came up with in 2006.
