Hungarian Pronunciation

This section divides in two parts.

In the first part, you will find exercises to practise Hungarian pronunciation. Repeat the words you hear with or without looking at the written document. The exercises focus on aspects of the Hungarian language that foreigners usually have difficulties with.

The second part contains short, mostly illustrated poems. Listening to them, reading and repeating them will improve your pronunciation and listening skills.

The poems are not included in our Worksheets and Vocabulary Lists by Themes section in their form presented here.

All recordings have been saved in mp3 format.
