Learn Hungarian

The Uralic languages use lots of grammatical cases, and suffixes and agglutination may make these languages look intimidating to start with, but the good news is that there is no distinction made between the male and female pronoun- just one word to remember for each.§

Fun facts about Hungarian

Hungarian has two words for red: piros - used for inanimate things - and vörös - for animate things.

When introducing yourself in Hungary, your surname comes first, then your first name - similar to Chinese and Korean.

The Hungarian phrase 'miért itatod az egereket?' - why are you crying? - literally translates as 'why are you giving drinks to the mice?'
