Better retention than you'd think! 5 Oct. 2010
By Jenny Chalek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love the Pimsleur method of language learning. You do have to have patience with yourself - I repeated each lesson an average of four times before moving on to the next. But I found that when I got to the end of the series, then went back to earlier ones for review, I had no problem at all remembering every single thing that had been taught. It's kind of like, you don't think you're learning a lot, but what you do learn you learn *so* well that it absolutely sticks. The lessons get progressively harder, but if you don't "get" a lesson the first time, just play it over again until you do get most of it. Before moving on. It really does stick if you do this.

I found the fact that they only want you to do the "reading lessons" after unit 11 or later very odd at first - but then when I finally got to that point, I realized why. You had to get used to the way things were pronounced enough so your brain isn't "prejudiced" by subconsciously "Americanizing" the written words.

I only wish they would continue the series - apparently there is not enough demand to go past Comprehensive I at this time, and it's so hard to find Hungarian instruction. I would absolutely buy a Comprehensive II if they came out with one.

Difficult to know what is being said. 3 Oct. 2010
By Eugene E. Brull - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I find this teaching Hungarian lessons quite good - a hundred times better than just a book. Because they don't have a printed set of new words for each of the lessons, I find that it takes me listening & practicing each lesson once a day for about a week before I can catch on to what a word is. [It could take less time to do a lesson more than once a day, but each lesson is ½ hour & it is difficult to find the extra time.] I have to use a Hungarian-English dictionary. Though, spelled words don't help the pronunciation, I have found that what is being said & what I'm trying to repeat becomes more & more difficult as sentences with the new words gets me lost. Life would be a lot easier if the lessons had a vocabulary for the new words. The lessons do an excellent job of building pronounciation of words and do a very good way of building vocabularly when new lessons bring into play elements of previous lessons. I would really recommend this product!!! Part of the problem with catching onto new words is my lifelong difficulty with languages & their longer sentences are a little too fast for the words to register. No matter what I have said that is somewhat negative, by all means - BUY THIS PRODUCT!! A good dictionary is a learning aid which I personally need whereas others can get by w/o one.

Pimsleur method for beginning Hungarian 27 Oct. 2009
By Garrett - Published on Amazon.com

This is a terrific product. My wife is Hungarian, she lived in Hungary until the age of 16, and she thinks it is excellent. The Pimsleur method is definitely an excellent method.

Amazing 25 Feb. 2012
By Barbara Maro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I lived in Hungary for a year as a child, and for me this was a great way to review. I think it would also be a good way to learn Hungarian if you didn't know any because I've studied some Spanish with Pimsleur, and found I had good retention from that.

I thought the pronunciation of the speakers was good, and the phrases they taught you were ones you would need to use every day if you lived in Hungary. My only complaint is that they don't have Levels II and III. I would certainly buy them if they did. It's a very enjoyable way for me to learn because I learn quickly this way, and I can knit as I'm listening and responding out loud.

So, if you're hesitating to get it, I'd say go for it if you really want to get a good introduction to Hungarian. It's well worth it.

Absolute best 8 Nov. 2011
By Conrads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the best ever learning program you could buy. If you are serious about Hungarian then this is for you. Loved it. I just hope Comprehensive II and III come out soon. I have tried many and this is the best. 5 Star.
