Hungarian Grammar and Pronunciation

  • Hungarian Reference The internet’s most complete guide to the Hungarian language. The objective of this site is to serve as a reference to this beautiful language. If is not intended to be a ground-up course, it is not intended to teach you Hungarian. It is meant to be a companion to your own study.
    This is a reference guide. Think of it as a text book, rather than a novel, in that you will find all the facts but reading it from cover-to-cover might be a little dry. 
  • FSI Language Courses The Hungarian Basic Course is written to provide students with the basic structure of the spoken language and a vocabulary to make limited practical use of both the spoken and written language while in Hungary. The course is intended to be colloquial, and emphasis is placed on idiomatic use and proper pronunciation of the spoken language. However, it also provides grammatical notes and instructions in the use of the written language.
    Each unit includes a set of basic sentences, notes to the basic sentences, notes on pronunciation, notes on grammar, transformation drills, variation drills, vocabulary drills, translation drills, response drills, conversation practice, and additional situations that are brief descriptions that promote free conversation. 2 textbooks (pdf) and 48 lessons (mp3)

The 56 reading selections are arranged to follow students’ progression from the beginning through the intermediate stages of reading proficiency.
