I suppose Epöl and Apple are pronounced the same.

You either need new glasses or new eyes.

pronunciation of "a" in "apple" is much closer to Hungarian "e" than "a"

actually Hungarian laguage has very clear rules for reading. i have heard that they almost don't have dialects (except people in Szeged have some dialect, so they read e more like ö, so, Szögöd if i am right).


"a" is in Hungarian read like "o", and "á" is "a"

"a" is in Hungarian read like "o", and "á" is "a"
A = "o" as in "a lot", while Ó as in "four". Otherwise I agree, Hungarian pronunciation is very straightforward, just some letters are pronounced differently than what we're used to (S [sh], SZ [s] etc). I find Irish or Welsh spelling the strangest.

Hungarian pronounciation is easy, the same letter or letter combination has always the same pronounciation (except for some historic words, mainly names).
But you may have problems right at the very first letter which is A. As far as I know there is no such vowel in any European language. If you speak German, Italian or some Slavic language I can say it is somehow between your A and O but is always pronounced shortly and there is no long version for it. If you say A or O as in your language everyone in Hungary will understand it but everyone will know at once you're a foreigner :-)
Hungarian Á is the same as A in the languages mentioned above but is always pronounced long and has no short version.

Today I got a 50 cents coin from Vatican. It have 2011 on it and looks very new. Better not spend it since it's very rare and may worth a lot more than a half Euro. I've never seen them before.

According to Wikipedia in 2011 were produced 2,184,704 Vatican 50 cents coins for commemorative purpose. So, my piece is ot that rare Considering Vatican's population, I though only few thousands of them exist.
