    I have visited Hungary a lot to visit my wife’s family, and I always got by with the rudimentary Hungarian she taught me. This time I added a Fungarian lesson early in my trip and it has transformed my experience of the city. I have learned the basics of the vowel sounds which makes me just that little bit more confident with the words I already know. Plus, armed with that knowledge, I can now start to sound out new words on my own and expand my vocabulary. I would definitely recommend Fungarian to help learn the basics of this most difficult language.
