Why learn Hungarian?

Learning to speak Hungarian online is an exciting and rewarding journey.

Learning Hungarian is a fascinating and rewarding journey that offers unique insights into a distinct and rich cultural heritage.

How long does it take to learn Hungarian?

Hungarian is a complex language and according to the Foreign Service Institute (FSI), Hungarian is classified as a Category IV language, indicating it is among the more challenging languages requiring approximately 1,100 hours of study for English speakers to achieve proficiency. This difficulty stems from its unique grammar structure, which includes 18 cases, agglutinative word formation, and complex vowel harmony. The European CEFR guidelines provide a structured path from A1 (beginner) to C2 (proficient), highlighting the need for systematic study and practice to achieve fluency in Hungarian.

Successfully passing these exams can open doors to higher education opportunities in Hungary, enhance job prospects, and provide official recognition of language skills.

Preparing for these exams can be challenging due to the comprehensive nature of the tests and the complexity of Hungarian grammar and vocabulary.

About the Hungarian language

Choosing to become fluent in Hungarian and learning a new language online is an exciting journey.

Hungarian, known as Magyar, is spoken by approximately 13 million people worldwide, primarily in Hungary, where it is the official language. It is also spoken by Hungarian communities in neighboring countries such as Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, and Ukraine, as well as by diaspora communities in the United States, Canada, and Australia. Hungarian is part of the Finno-Ugric language family, making it distinct from most European languages, which are Indo-European. Its development has been influenced by various languages over the centuries, including Turkish, German, and Slavic languages.

For learners, Hungarian presents unique challenges and rewards. Its complex grammar includes 18 cases, agglutinative structures, and vowel harmony, which can be difficult for speakers of Indo-European languages to master. However, Hungarian is phonetic, meaning words are pronounced as they are written, which aids in learning pronunciation. Mastery of Hungarian opens up access to Hungary's rich cultural heritage, including its literature, music, and history. Additionally, proficiency in Hungarian can enhance travel experiences and provide career opportunities in Central Europe, particularly in fields such as business, tourism, and international relations.
