I finally started taking Hungarian lessons here!! We actually just started them on Tuesday. So we are going to have lessons twice a week for the next ten weeks (now nine). It’s an extremely nice learning environment because it’s just 4 of my foreign teammates and I in our lessons. We have a two teachers, one comes on Tuesdays, one comes on Thursdays, and they are both super nice ladies who (so far) seem like they are very good teachers!

Our lessons are located downtown Pest. From my new apartment it takes only 15 minutes to walk there, so I usually leave a little earlier and take a longer stroll and get a coffee or juice before class. The weather lately has been wonderful, too warm to even wear a jacket, so have to enjoy it while we still have it!

They were pretty good, but they need some work! I haven’t made anything in an oven for a long, long time. I drank some tea, studied my Hungarian and did some homework we had for the class. I also watched the Amazing Race which if you don’t know is a reality TV game show, where they race around the world for a million dollars. I love watching it because they get to travel so many places and learn about the culture of the country they’re in. I need to be on this TV show!

Here’s to hoping I’m fluent in Hungarian after the next 9 weeks 😉

    1. The pronunciation in my opinion is the toughest part! They have 16 “extra” letters that we don’t have in English.

      Supposedly, Hungarian is one of the hardest languages to learn. However, so far it has been no problem learning the basics. It’s only as hard as you make it!
