Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction on 16 CDs, plus a reading booklet

Hungarian is spoken in Hungary and by the Hungarian minorities in 7 neighboring countries. The Hungarian name for the language is Magyar. Pimsleur's Hungarian teaches the "standard" Hungarian, which is based on the North-Eastern dialect spoken throughout Hungary.

The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You’ll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! Hungarian, Comprehensive includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one hour of reading instruction in thirty, 30-minute lessons.

  • In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.
  • In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.
  • In the final 10 lessons, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Reading Lessons are included and begin in Lesson 11 to provide you with an introduction to reading Hungarian. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format

Comments about Hungarian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

I really like the Pimsleur Method. I feel like I'm able to string together sentences pretty quickly and my pronunciation is much better than it would be had I used a more traditional learning method such as textbooks.

Comments about Hungarian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

The lessons are easy to follow and helpful with spoken language. I am over half way through the level one for Hungarian. I wish level two can be developed and made available by the time I finish level one. I would like to further study Hungarian to medium and advanced level.

    Comments about Hungarian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    I LOVE this course! I highly recommend this! Do not read the other reviews, your search ends here. This tool is extremely easy and comprehensive. It explains grammar rules and pronunciation. It provides proven methods for memory retention such as repetition and sound isolation. It gives conversational practice so you can use new phrases and words you learn, but in a way that forces you to think.

    It's audio only, so you will not learn the alphabet (search YouTube) or spelling. I had google translate open (English to Hungarian) and found the spelling that way, and also noticed that translators provide generic translation that you will be able to spot once you learn.I've filled one pager per lesson, and I listen to each lesson twice a day before moving forward. Repetition is key! It's how babies learn :)

    Service and delivery comments:

    Prompt and easy to access. Available on my iPhone and an app was also made specifically for this.
