Your personalised course will be built around one of the following options:
General Hungarian language courses are ideal for students at any level, from complete beginners to advanced learners. These courses are based around developing communication skills in common situations. Your teacher will place an emphasis on vocabulary and grammar, with plenty of speaking, listening, and reading practice. Our general Hungarian courses are an ideal way to get started in the language, build on existing skills, or attain a working knowledge before progressing to a business or specialised Hungarian course.
Listen & Learn's general Hungarian courses for groups are a great option for groups of 2-12 colleagues or friends who are at the same level in studying Hungarian. Your group should have similar learning goals and be available to study at the same time and location every week. The courses are tailored to suit the group's level, no matter how elementary or advanced. General courses aim to give students knowledge of common Hungarian that would be used in real scenarios. Your teacher will cover a lot of grammar and vocabulary, as well as give you ample opportunities to practise your reading, listening, and speaking skills. General group Hungarian courses are great for groups who would like to begin learning Hungarian, or improve on existing skills and knowledge. These courses are also highly recommended as a first step for companies who would like their employees to move on to a business language course once they have a working knowledge of Hungarian.
Our business courses cater to learners with a decent general knowledge of Hungarian but would like to expand their skills for use in the business world. Courses are, as always, completely tailormade for the relevant industry and skill sets (e.g. business correspondence, writing reports etc.). One-to-one business courses are perfect for professionals hoping to develop their current Hungarian skills, especially those working for multinational corporations, preparing to work from abroad, or looking for overseas employment.
Intended for learners who already have a basic grasp of Hungarian and wish to extend it to apply to their working lives, group business Hungarian courses are a great way to enable employees within a multinational corporation to be productive in both their native tongue and their newly-acquired Hungarian. Group courses cater for up to 12 people (minimum of 2 students), and should be scheduled to take place at the same time and location each week. The tutor will develop the group's vocabulary to suit the related industry, as well as improve competence for day to day tasks performed in Hungarian.
Specific purposes Hungarian courses are a great boon to people who have already studied Hungarian and wish to develop certain facets of their Hungarian skills. This can include an array of helpful guidance, including the following:
• Vocabulary related to the industry (legal, HR, engineering, accounting, medical etc.)
• Accent softening and elocution
• Expanding upon existing aspects (writing, speaking, listening, reading etc.)
• Language for travelling
• Communication skills in business (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Writing skills in business (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)

Developing existing aptitude for writing, reading, listening, speaking, etc.
