English,one of the languages that most people in Hungary do not understand

No doubt Hungary has one of the most beautiful views along the Danube river near the downtown,which are very famous among visitors from all around the world.One problem that most people would encounter in Hungary is that,Hungarians do know speak English very well.Whether you hire a taxi or going to a hotel outside the downtown(near Deak Ferenc ter),you will find it very hard to communicate with the people.
The reason being the fact that hungarians are not good speakers is that,it has been under Russian influence for a long time,so the secondary language people used to learn was either Russian, or German,being part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire,where western boundary touches Germany. Although it is considered that Taxi drivers in most countries can speak English very well,but in Budapest you will find out that taxi drivers in Hungary are unable to speak English.Restaurants on Raday Utca and Vaci Utca, do have waiters who can speak English and will even invite you when you are wandering around the downtown,but going to a Shopping plaza,or a grocery shop like Tesco will not help you much in terms of English.The shopkeepers are usually very poor in English and if you want to communicate with them,they will call some colleagues to talk to you.Another issue here is that,most of the products available in super market dont have English on them.
Seems like these products are  only made for Easter European countries,and therefore,have only Czech,Ukrainian,Polish,Hungarian and Solvekian Language.
Even if you have to go to Banks in Hungary,there will be only a single person reserved for handling customers with English language,and if that guy is on vacation,Bank staff in Budapest will ask you to come next day.On metro stations,Bus stations and other tourist places,there are very few boards which guide you in English. Despite all the language problems with Hungarian People,it is still a very beautiful country that deserves to be visited,no matter you are a kid,adult or a young man.
