Let's face it....Hungarian isn't easy! We can't really relate it to other languages (unless you speak Finnish...yeah right!!) But if you are ready to learn, Assimil does a great job of unravelling this puzzle which is Hungarian. The tapes do an impeccable job of helping you grasp the phonetics and intonations (VERY important). The translations are done in correct english so you understand and many times as word for word translations as well so you develop a sense of word order (also VERY important). Every unclear detail is explained in notes at the bottom of the page so you're never lost. Grammar is introduced gradually so as to not overwhelm the student. Text is practical, realistic and USEFUL! Being objective, the lessons can be a bit much towards the middle. There's a lot to learn! English and Hungarian have almost NOTHING in common. You can't get around that! Take it slowly! It will come. it's the next best thing to having a private tutor!

The approach to language learning used in this book is so perfectly geared to self-study (and for many people, language acquisition in general) that it's really difficult to understand why there aren't more books like this out there. Instead of offering yet another textbook piled up with randomly thrown-together dialogues followed by a vocabulary list and some grammar practice here and there, Hungarian with Ease presents a surprisingly effective system where the basics of the language essentially fall into place for the student through the use of extremely well-designed conversations and examples.

That might sound gimmicky but in practice it's pretty cool, almost like an FSI course minus the whole brutal mind-numbing jackhammer thing. Here's how it works: there are- count them- 85 lessons, most of which begin with a short dialogue of usually not much more than 10 lines. English translations are conveniently placed on the right-hand page directly opposite the conversations where they can be easily referenced or covered up as necessary (One of the few downsides is that the book is pretty adamant about keeping this format up, so sometimes the organization of the following material suffers and parts of the rest of the lesson might be hard to find or show up where you're not expecting them). New or confusing points from the dialogues are highlighted and explained in a short notes section, where the sometimes technical terminology is balanced by some pretty wacky "humor."

Coming up next are the `Exercises,' made up of 6 or so sentences (with translations) that let you watch the new grammar and vocabulary in action, and the `Corrections,' which are another 6 English sentences that you have to translate into Hungarian in a fill-in-the-blank kind of drill.
