    My first language is Spanish. I teach and translate to/from English, French and Portuguese.

    I am the only one on this forum who speaks Hungarian? Well I am quite old - born in 1942. But all my relatives could speak Hungarian, though they are all long dead. It used to be a major European language in the Austrian Empire, so sad that it has disappeared. My mother and Aunt did a lot of baking during my childhood, selling cakes to the large minority of Austro-Hungarians who lived in London.

    Hi DW,

    I´m glad to see you back. It has become difficult for me to enter Litnet, because of recurrent technical issues.
    I don´t speak Hungarian myself, but I remember a Hungarian bakery near by.
