English term or phrase: Hello
I want to say "hello" to my cousin
John mahon
Hungarian translation:Szia
Explanation:
You say 'Szia' if you meet someone, but this can also be used for Bye-bye.
Be aware: 'Szia' is informal! If there is a generation gap between you and your cousin then you may want to use 'Jónapot kívánok' instead (which is formal).

Pronounced like see ya. This is Hi or Hello (also Bye) in Hungarian. If you want to use the formal version, Jonapot (Good Day) is proper.

Explanation:
definitely "szia", if it is for your cousin.
