Dear Marina and Rene,


First of all, thank you for your comments!


One of the particularities of Hungarian languages is its complex system of suffix-prefix-conjugation.

These three are related to each other, and once you understand the logic of verb construction, it will be more or less the same for all!


You don't necessarily have to know all suffixes and conjugation rules to communicate, Hungarians really adore those who try to learn their language!


@ Marina, you will find more specific lessons on the different suffixes in the upcoming Upper Intermediate level. Lower levels are focusing on verb construction and basic prefixes and suffixes.


Don't hesitate to ask questions in comments, we are more than happy to give more explanations or examples!


I wish you good luck for your studies, and hope to hearing from you some phrases in Hungarian next time (the sooner the better)!


Best,

Dorottya

Szia Rene,


I'm in languages a few years now, too and I guess most of them you are able to learn fast and speak them already in an early learning-state if you know enough of the vocabulary.

But the hungarian language builds a lot of "new vocabulary" using more than 20 cases (I cannot remember at the Moment, maybe there are more than 30, but also the linguists are not sure about that).:sweat_smile:

If you are able to get that suffixes and prefixes in a sentence or a word maybe it get's easier.

I haven't found already an overview here where all of them are listed. That would be very helpful.

Like -ben/-ban = in( something), -bรณl/-bล‘l = from.....


Example: Van egy autรณm? (Do you have a car?) litteraly means "Is-there a car-that-is-yours?)


I hope my guessing could give you a small "help" or another view, although I am a absolute beginner, too.

And sorry for the weird capitalization in the sentences, but my german Keyboard has it's own will.:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: And sorry for the Long post :D


Szรฉp estรฉt!

Hi Rene!


Sentence building is very complex in Hungarian, even at the beginner level, I'll give you that. However, you shouldn't lose hope!


Here is what we should do: go through the survival lessons one last time and shoot me a comment as soon as there is something you don't get. Do that also, when the vocab gets too difficult around the end. We'll target the problems and get you back on top of your enthusiasm!


Kitartรกs!:smile:

Sziastok,

At the risk of sounding pessimistic. How does this work?

I've been reviewing the Survival lessons (1 - 14) for about two months.

I understand some basic stuff. I can't remember most of the expansion sentences.

By the time I got to lesson 14 and 15, the vocab became too difficult.


Then I jumped to the numbers which were relatively easy.

Now I am stuck. I can't learn the vocab on Survival 14 and 15.

I tried the Absolute beginner (1 - 4 or 5) but they are too difficult.

The other Beginner courses are way too difficult.


I did some of the 3-minute videos and Learn With Pictures: I increased my vocab a little, but I can't put sentences together.


I am NOT a newbie at language learning. I've spent my life learning languages such as French, German, Italian, Russian, Czech and Bulgarian.


It seems that I finally met my match. Hungarian wins, I lose.


Any hope for me? What would you suggest?

Thank you.

-Rene
