Hey there! This is Part 5 of the Icipici Series about Getting Started with Hungarian. Wowee guys, this is Episode 62. I can hardly believe it! Have you checked out our earlier episodes? We cover a lot of ground!
So, if you are new to the podcast, you have some catching up to do. Since this is Part 5 of Getting Started with Hungarian, be sure to listen to Episodes 58, 59, 60, and 61. They are short and sweet – that is where we get the name icipici from – and they will get you thinking and all caught up in this Icipici series.
For the next several episodes, I will be talking with one of my Hungarian instructors, Anna Hamp. If you have been listening to the podcast, you might recognize her voice from the YouTube video I recommended last episode titled Learning the Hungarian Alphabet which is posted on the Hungarian Living YouTube Channel. Or if you have been listening to the Hungarian Living podcast for a while now you might recognize her from way back in Episode 17 where we talk about our Hungarian Dialogue Sessions. By the way, if you want to practice speaking Hungarian, we are offering these dialogue sessions again — starting early in September, so contact me right away if you want to jump in on the fun! We don’t offer them all the time. If you want to become more familiar with Hungarian, you need to speak it. You have to keep practicing.
We are in the middle of a our icipici series about Getting Started in Hungarian. So far I have talked about how important it is to know your WHY because it will help keep one motivated as they are learning something new, like Hungarian. But I also covered how knowing a bit about one’s learning style helps the process. And we have covered the importance of knowing the correct pronunciation of the Hungarian alphabet.
And now we are here!
So, let’s talk about a couple of important pronunciation tips.
stress always on the first syllable
pronouncing every syllable and sound
lengthen double the length of the double letters
And if you have questions about how we do things in our language classes, send me a message at [email protected] we are starting new classes soon and would love to have you join us.
