So i would recommend at least that branch for english speaking people.
1) Do not come to a country that you do not speak the language, and waste time and effort seeking out others that speak your language, for your convenience.
2) Put a crow bar in your pocket, lever out the wallet, and hire a local professional interpreter to assist with such things. Which is, in my humble opinion, the much, much more polite, elegant, faster, and easier option.
1) That's a bit impolite. Hungarian is awkward and it's difficult to learn on the fly. It's not unusual to turn up in places and try to muddle through. I do it all the time. Learning a few words helps break the ice of course.
On 2), I'm lucky (as are you), I've got my own personal assistant called Mrs Fluffy and I'm working on the two Fluffyettes to help me out with my pathetic HU language skills. I suppose, in the latter case, rather than hire an interpreter, I'm growing my own!
Strangely enough, the Brexit thing has really given me a kick up the rear end. Maybe the one I needed. I've started learning Hungarian more earnestly so that after all this time, I could maybe become a citizen as a Plan B. I satisfy all the rest of it, I just cannot pass the language skills test.
