Posting in Hungarian? Leave a translation. It's good practice and helps others.


Hi Listeners! Köszönöm szépen for joining us at! Why are you studying Hungarian? Tell us about it in the comments!



Szia Mary,

Thank you for your kind feedback.
We’re happy to hear that you had a nice time in Hungary.
We hope, that these lessons will help you to use Hungarian language during your next trip! :)

Let us know if you have any question.

This is, hands down, the best way to learn a language! I certainly wish my Hungarian born grandparents had taught Mom the language to pass along to HER children. Alas! However, they did tell her from whence they immigrated, and knowing these locations I’ve been able to trace back many generations!
When we were stationed in Germany (MUCH easier language to learn!), my husband and I spent a lovely week in Szentendre in 1995. Naturally we went to Budapest, but also drove out to Visegrad, Holloko, Komarom, Eger as well as various small villages. Everyone was so wonderfully welcoming.
Before hubby and I return to Hungary in a few years, I’m hoping to learn how to communicate in Hungarian enough to extract even MORE enjoyment from the trip. I am so grateful that this HungarianPod language course exists, and look forward to learning! So, thank you very much, instructors!!

I am first generation American born to Hungarian refugees from Romania. My mother passed recently and I have discovered many letters written in Hungarian from my grandparents to my Mother. As a small child, we spoke Hungarian fluently. However, I lost it as I grew up. I would love to relearn Hungarian and maybe even read a letter or two some day.


Szia Stevi!

Thank you very much for sharing your story!

I know that for native English speakers (not exclusively), the gy and ty sounds are pretty hard to learn. Nevertheless, it only takes practice, take it as a challenge! :wink:

Try an exercice:
First, eat some candy (sugar keeps your mouth wet and helps your tongue :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: )
Try to pronounce a sound between dj (like in due date) and phonetic dz (like in jam or jack). You can try to pronounce the words jam or jack with the dj sound instead of dz. This will help you train your tongue for new sounds!

Another exercice can be to pronounce the dj sound and while pronouncing, trying to move your tongue towards your throat.
With this gy sound, try to do a pronunciation exercice with these pairs:
gyia – dia
gyúr – dúr
hagy – had
vagy – vad
vágy – vád
szegy – szed
végy! - véd
agyag – adag
összegyűl – összedűl
egy – edd!
kegy – kedd

Also, in the lesson materials, you have a voice recorder next to the audio button. You can record your voice and compare it to the native speaker’s voice. It really helps!

Don’t forget the candy! :wink:

If you need any help, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
Good luck,
