Hey everyone,

I would like to introduce myself today. I am Finn, I have lived in Budapest, Hungary for 4 months now and I am going to learn the language in this year with the help of this website. I am a 22-year old student of International Relations (Master-level), originally from Germany, and I am already able to say things like basic vocabulary and some basic phrases.
My goal here is to be able to speak Hungarian with locals until the end of the year and I am confident that I chose the right platform to learn it.
I try to do it by:
1) consistent action
2) following the recommended path
3) speaking with locals in Hungarian everytime I can
4) never giving up
5) learning from mistakes

If anybody wants to meet up here in Budapest, I am very happy to join/organize a meeting!

Cheers and best regards,

Hello. I live in Orlando, Florida and moved here from Sao Paulo, Brazil. My entire family is Hungarian and I grew up speaking the language with my grandparents but after several years apart I lost it :( . We are travelling to Hungary for the first time this year and I want to learn/remember as much as I can before getting there. Koszonom!


Kedves (Dear) Kathleen (Kati),

Thank you for posting and sharing your story!
We’re glad to hear that you’re making friends in Hungary and that you’re interested in learning the language.
Magyar nyelv is not the easiest one, so I’m pretty sure your friends really appreciate your efforts.
Please feel free to ask us if you have any question.
We’re happy to help!
Please update us on your language learning journey! We’re looking forward to hearing from you again!

A few months ago I met a woman from Hungary on Facebook. I am an American living in New York and she lives in Hungary. We developed an instant friendship and soon members of her family “friended” me on Facebook as well.. :) We all really struggle to communicate and the “Translator” system on the internet does not work well with Magyar nyelv. I am assuming the Translator is challenged by the affixes and the overall “Agglutination” process of the Hungarian language. I have continued to gain friends from Hungary both on Facebook and using a Penpal system. I am currently corresponding with over 20 people from Hungary and the Ukraine. Many of my online friends are making me “sound bytes” and developing language lessons for me. I am fully committed to mastering Magyar nyelv and from what I can see, your language system has all of the tools I need to be successful.
Kösönöm szépen (Thank you very much) for offering this creative and innovative learning system.
Üdvözlettel (Regards)
Kathleen (Kati)


Hello Maria,

Thank you for sharing your story! If you learned Hungarian when you were young, I believe you will be able to speak the language again soon as you mentioned, by unlocking your Hungarian. I believe your next trip to Hungary will be so much fun if you speak Hungarian. Feel free to let us know if you have any questions when learning Hungarian with us. We will be very happy to help you!

I used to speak fluent Hungarian (up to the age of 5 years old) then the English language strongly took over. This was a very long time ago but now in my late 50s I am determined to “unlock” this so that I can have a conversation with my aunt who lives in Hungary. (This is my only living family member of that generation as I lost both my parents in 2015 who were both bilingual). I have been to Hungary, many, many times but then always had my parents to translate. So now moving forward, I’m now enrolled to Hungarianpod101 to unlock the Hungarian language within me!
