Everybody can benefit from our general Hungarian courses - they endeavour to give the learner fluency in general Hungarian conversation, whether through learning the basics or improving existing skills. General courses concentrate mainly on sharpening up grammar and vocabulary, and aim to expand the ability to speak, read and listen Hungarian with full comprehension. These courses will be most suitable for those who want to improve their Hungarian to a practicable level, or as a basis for a business 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.
These business Hungarian courses are aimed at groups of 2 to 12 people who already have a fair working Hungarian knowledge, who wish to convert this knowledge to practicable business use. So long as all members of the group are at the same level of Hungarian at the start of the course, and are able to meet for each class at a pre-arranged time and place, then the classes will be of great benefit to all involved. Business courses will generally focus on the field or industry in question, incorporating related vocabulary and improving appropriate skills, such as writing reports, formal business correspondence or giving a presentation.
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:
