5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Available Resource 14. November 2011
Von ChrisRugeley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Perhaps the best thing about Colloquial Hungarian, what sets it apart from other available resources, is that it makes learning Hungarian--a task that, at first, feels like climbing mount improbable--approachable and fun. I am a second-year Hungarian student who this summer had the opportunity to study in Budapest with Erika Solyom. Before finding the book (and Professor Solyom), I bounced through a variety of materials: an old US State Department coursebook, a few grammars, a Teach Yourself course, and an audio course from Pimmsler. Everything I tried seemed to be missing something fundamental. The grammars excluded, all the more pedagogically-oriented materials I tried were either too analytic, grounded in a rote militaristic logic of drills and tiring repetition, or too soft, focused only on building the capacity to speak at a basic, I-just-landed-and-can-greet-the-customs-officer level. I'm not saying these materials weren't helpful. They were, each in their own way. But none succeeded in bringing together so seamlessly all the requisite components of language learning as Colloquial Hungarian. For me, finding the book changed everything.

Suddenly, learning Hungarian not only seemed attainable, it was fun. The book's bedrock is a story, unfolded through dialogues (available on CD and excellent) and centered in the lives of a handful of colorful characters that, I admit, I grew quite attached to. I think this is something unique in a language-learning book. Is it corny, funny, cute? Maybe so. But it works wonderfully to get you more invested in the material; at least it did for me. The grammar unfolds in a manageable, brick-by-brick way, and it encourages you to focus on one thing at a time, to seek out patterns, and to build and build at a slow pace that assures you won't get burned out, feel hopeless, or give up altogether.

Learning Hungarian is already hard. Why make it harder? If you want a book that empowers you as a language learner, that leaves you feeling like you can do this, like you ARE doing this, buy Colloquial Hungarian. Believe me, I've tried many others, and this is hands down the best.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Starter 12. Januar 2012
Von Jessica - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The first two things everybody asked me when I told them I was going to be studying in Budapest for a semester were "Wait, are you going to actually LEARN Hungarian?" and "Isn't that one of the hardest languages ever?"
After taking the class for just one semester and having the opportunity to learn from this book in particular, I can say that it was a lot easier than I imagined. As Markus said, each new section builds on the last, which really helps to solifidy your base knowledge with each new unit. While I would change the order just slightly (putting things like numbers closer to the beginning), I can definitely say that without this book (and the great instruction that went along with it), I would have been lost for the entire semester. Unlike other books I've seen for the language, this one actually shows you the logic behind a lot of the grammar - something that comes in handy when you encounter a new word. At only half-way through the book, you begin to be able to distinguish what parts of speech foreign words belong to and even be able to somewhat discern what the basic idea of the text is.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone trying to learn Hungarian.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not Perfect 24. September 2012
Von owlgirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I agree with everyone else that is the best product out there for learning Hungarian. That being said, it's not perfect--especially the exercises. I'm a detailed-oriented perfectionist, so maybe this bothers me more than others, but I've run across exercises where the answer requires words not covered in the vocabulary--and indeed, not even in the dictionary in the back of the book--and ones where the answer's grammar directly contradicts rules given in the preceding pages. I don't know if this is because the exercises are sloppily put together, or if there's some rule/exception/situation that hasn't been explained yet...but either way it's frustrating. Just be prepared for it when you start studying.

5.0 von 5 Sternen in comparison... 8. November 2011
Von Big Wayne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
-------- my wife is hungarian, so i'm learning hungarian in self-defense. i've used three books in class (at uc berkeley ), one from Pontifex, Solyom's first version, and this one .

This has exercises that are really aimed at the material - you don't have to have had a miracle occur in order to be able to do them ! The dictionary is MUCH fuller - in both directions. And, typos and other minor glitches are gone.

If i have to point out a flaw, the CD, with the dialogues, becomes too fast, too soon .

3.0 von 5 Sternen Best for learners already based in Hungary or who at least have some prior experience with the language 3. Juni 2014
Von Christopher Culver - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I learned Hungarian in the 1990s with the previous edition of Routledge's Colloquial Hungarian written by Jerry Payne, but having forgot a lot and wanting to brush up, I picked up this later incarnation by Carol H. Rounds and Erika Sólyom. If you order this, be sure to choose an edition that includes both the paperback book and the audio CD.

The book introduces you to all the typical aspects of a first-year intensive Hungarian course: all the verb conjugations, noun cases and basic vocabulary. Each unit with some aspect of everyday life, such as going to a restaurant, visiting the doctor, renting a flat, or visiting one of Budapest's famous baths. The authors introduce a cast of characters that we follow from unit to unit, a couple of touching love stories too, which helps the reader stay engaged.

Hungarian is not an easy language for those who know only English, and I don't think I would have learned it had I not spent a great deal of time in Hungary. I think that COLLOQUIAL HUNGARIAN would frustrate any readers trying to learn the language without being able to travel frequently to the place it is spoken. That is namely because the book has too few drills here for Hungarian's dizzingly complex grammar, and the learner would need to have daily contact with Hungarian speakers in order to get enough practice to internalize this grammar.

However, for people who will be based in Hungary for some time, or like me have prior experience with the language, will find this an enjoyable course. The book lives up to its name (*colloquial*, that is, spoken Hungarian) much more than its predecessors, and the reader will learn many expressions and idioms typical of everyday life that are not typically found in courses based on the literary language.
