An estimated 13 million people speak Hungarian as a first language. The majority of these speakers live in Hungary, but others are spread around Eastern Europe and diaspora communities around the world. Thanks to its large number of speakers, Hungarian's the largest member of the Uralic language family. In spite of its intimidating grammar, Hungarian is written using a modified Latin alphabet, which makes it more approachable to westerners.
The United States Foreign Service Institute rates Hungarian as a Category III language, which means they consider it to be hard for native English speakers to learn. This "hard" rating is due to significant cultural and linguistic differences. The Foreign Service Institute estimates that an average student will need about 44 weeks, or 1,100 c
lass hours, of focused study to become proficient in Hungarian.
Why Learn to Speak Hungarian?
You shouldn't, however, be dismayed by the Hungarian language's category III ranking. Yes, there are plenty of easier languages you could learn, but there are also languages considered much more difficult. So, if you're interested in studying Hungarian for any reason — travel, business, heritage, in-laws, a love of the culture, or a passion for their cuisine — then we say go for it!
Hungary is full of cultural wonders that can be much better experienced by speaking and understanding the country's language. If you plan to travel or do business in Hungary, the people will appreciate your effort to learn their native tongue, and you'll be welcomed with open arms. When you start studying Hungarian with the assistance of a private Hungarian teacher, you'll have a leg up and learn much more quickly than if you tried to study on your own.
The Best Way to Learn Hungarian and What You'll Study in Classes
Sure, you can find loads of free Hungarian lessons and tutorials online, but the best way to learn the language is by studying with a private Hungarian tutor. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention and the sort of personalized instruction that you simply can't get from online videos or in a larger class. With immediate feedback, you'll overcome personal challenges and improve quickly.
Plus, every private lesson is different. Teachers completely customize each course, keeping in mind the student's goals, interests, existing knowledge, and preferred learning styles. For example, Hungarian lessons for adults differ greatly in terms of content and teaching methods from Hungarian classes for children. Your teacher will keep you motivated and interested, while you learn Hungarian at a pace that's comfortable for you.
Sample Curriculum for Beginner Hungarian
If you have little or no previous experience speaking Hungarian, then beginner lessons will be right for you. In these classes, your tutor will introduce you to the fundamentals of the Hungarian language. You'll build a strong foundation, as you become more familiar with Hungarian. In beginner courses, your tutor might cover the following topics:
- Introduction to the Hungarian alphabet and its pronunciation
- Formal and informal address
- Greetings, introductions, goodbyes, thank you, and more survival phrases
- Forming simple sentences
- Making sense of Hungarian word order
Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Hungarian
Intermediate lessons build upon the fundamentals learned in beginner classes. Intermediate-level students should possess a basic understanding of the Hungarian language. In intermediate lessons, you'll begin forming more complex ideas and handling more in-depth conversations in Hungarian, while you expand your grammatical skills and vocabulary. Your tutor might choose to cover the following topics:
- Numbers, counting, and telling time
- Forming questions
- Plural and singular forms
- Conjugating verbs and tenses
- Nouns and adjectives
Sample Curriculum for Advanced Hungarian
Advanced lessons are most appropriate for students who can almost speak fluent Hungarian. In these classes, you'll reduce your accent, improve your fluency, and learn to speak more like a native Hungarian speaker. Subjects covered in advanced lessons depend greatly on the student's individual goals and interests, but your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:
- Accent reduction
- Understanding nuance and inference
- Colloquialisms, culture, and customs
- Advanced composition and comprehension
