Does it cost anything to become a member?
Yes. We have two types of annual membership that you pay once a year. The single membership cost $10. It is for only one person. The family membership cost $20 that for families for up to 8 family members.
Can I be a member if I don't speak Hungarian?
Yes, absolutely! A perfect knowledge of the Hungarian language is not a condition for membership. However, it is important to know that the dominant language of communication is Hungarian, as the members are mostly native Hungarian speakers. We also try to provide the most important information in English. In case of "mixed" families, please contact the Hungarian-speaking member of the family.
