Hungarian Book Reviews and Resources

Budapest

After finally finding a grammar book that I can actually recommend, I’ve finished a Hungarian book reviews section. Just because not many people study it, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t get some love.

For those of you who might be shopping around for a new language, Hungarian is not as hard as everyone says. I think it’s just a rumor Hungarians like to spread so that they can talk amongst themselves without being understood in trains. The language is extremely orderly – the spelling is as easy as Spanish, once you get a hang of it, the dreaded case system is much better behaved than Russian, there are no noun genders, and the grammar is just cool.

Check this out:

a feleség (the wife) – a feleségem (my wife) – a feleségnek (to the wife, as in “He gave flowers to the wife”) – a feleségemnek (to my wife, as in “He gave flowers to my wife”).

 

Awesome.
