WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
During your visit to Hungary, the language here can seem a little intimidating at first glance, with many long words and unfamiliar letters – but let one of our friendly Fungarian teachers be your guide to learning some basic understanding of the playfully poetic Hungarian language.
Held amid informally iconic Budapest settings like locals’ cafés near major city monuments, 1-hour Fungarian classes cover basic Hungarian greetings and basic interactions, such as what to say (and what not to say) when ordering a drink or a meal.
During the 1-hour Fungarian class available in multiple languages, visitors learn fundamentals like how to count from one to five, and can also ask questions about daily life in Hungary and about the country’s culture and history – even learning why Hungarians call themselves Magyars.

”I always like to know at least a few words in the language of the country I am visiting, so a lesson with Fungarian seemed the best way to get to grips with impossibly difficult Hungarian! Our teacher Balazs was brilliant – he certainly went the extra mile making the lesson (which was much longer than the specified hour!) fun and informative. …. We used the Hungarian words and phrases a lot during our week in Hungary and would certainly recommend a Fungarian lesson to everyone visiting Hungary!”

”I am so glad I booked the 1 hour crash course in Hungarian. Even after a brief, 1 hour lesson with Miklós I was able to order food in Hungarian, greet people, and ask for directions: what more can a traveler want? It was the PERFECT start to my stay in Budapest. My visit was greatly enhanced by being able to communicate a little bit. Just learning how to pronounce the street I was staying on was incredibly helpful. Miklós is full of interesting information about Hungarian and Budapest. Absolutely worth while.”
