Learn Hungarian through conversations

'You can be the envy of your friends when you brag about knowing one of the world's most unique languages—Hungarian! Hungarian is almost completely unrelated to any other language in Europe and as such, it commands a great deal of respect from natives when a foreigner speaks it well. And natives abound: Hungarian is spoken by over 13 million people in Hungary, Transylvania, Slovakia, and Serbia. If you want to see Buda Castle, the beautiful blue Danube, or the amazing Chain Bridge, speaking Hungarian is a sure-fire way to maximize your Hungarian travel adventures.'

Grammar Notes

No interpretation is created equal. Grammar Notes, color-coding, and features that focus on specific grammatical nuances between target and source language strengthens your understanding of Hungarian language structure.

Culture Notes

Etiquette, body language, gestures — set the mood. Culture Notes provide a backdrop to learning material and let the Hungarian culture come alive, setting you up to forge deeper connections with Hungarian culture and make a positive impression.

Vocabulary

Critical thinking and memory-building exercises blend new vocabulary into lesson progress, allowing you to pick up on the structure of your target language so you can apply new content that will be presented in various contexts throughout the course.
