Learning Hungarian is a daunting task indeed... It is one of the hardest languages to master, but if are brave enough to try, we have the textbooks to help you along. From individual to group study, from colloquial to linguistic level, we have a wide range of teaching material to offer. Do contact us for advice or for a word of encouragement...

Halló, itt Magyarország is by far the most popular teaching material with evening class teachers in the UK. Currently four evening classes use this package and the students come back for the next level, year in, year out.

Constructed by experienced teachers of Hungarian as a foreign language, Halló, itt Magyarország provides a comprehensive course for the dedicated learner. As the entire text is in Hungarian, working through the material with the guidance of a native teacher is usually a good idea - may it be in an evening class environment or at home, learning from and with a Hungarian spouse or partner.
