Tips and resources for learning Hungarian
Hungarian is often regarded as one of the world’s toughest languages to learn. As a Brit, it can be all too easy to rely on English wherever we are in the world, especially for the basics.
I’m also not a “natural” language learner; I studied French and German at school, but was never really inspired by it. Later, I attempted to teach myself Spanish after spending a lot of time in Spanish-speaking countries for work. I would say I got as far as “restaurant” level, in that I can talk to a waiter or a taxi driver, but not much else.
So, learning Hungarian seems like a doomed project before I’ve even begun! But, I think it’s extremely important to make a decent effort to adapt and integrate if you decide to call a new country home.
