In depth: Our Hungarian Courses for Business in Somerset

Hungarian Teaching Approach & Experience

Many professionals in companies across the UK, as well as private individuals, have benefited from an Hungarian Language Course with SIMON & SIMON. We have a terrific team of qualified native-speaker Hungarian teachers, and with an average of 15 years’ experience they will ensure you benefit from a course designed specifically around your needs, whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced learner with more specialised requirements. We consistently receive excellent feedback on our Hungarian tutors from our clients, and we send our students a profile on their Hungarian tutor prior to their Hungarian lessons commencing, with information on the tutor’s background and experience.

If you have only studied languages before at school you will find that teaching approaches to modern language training have changed enormously in recent years – it’s now a lot more fun and a far more rewarding experience! Your teacher will conduct your Hungarian lesson in Somerset almost entirely in Hungarian – a method known as the Communicative Approach – and you will find yourself making progress from the very first lesson and soon growing in the confidence to communicate in Hungarian in a variety of social and business situations.

1:1 and Group Hungarian Courses in Somerset

Our Hungarian language courses are available on both a 1:1 and group basis, but the majority of our clients offer 1:1 Hungarian training to their employees. However, with careful planning, group training can offer great value for money, provided there is a real commitment from the participants to get together at the same time every week. We strongly recommend you keep group numbers to 6 or less for these types of courses to be successful. Those learning Hungarian in Somerset on a 1:1 basis will naturally make much faster progress, as the course will be designed around their individual needs and focus on their particular strengths and weaknesses.

Hungarian Course Management

Every SIMON & SIMON Hungarian language course is overseen by one of our highly experienced Account Managers, all of whom are multi-lingual. At the start of your Hungarian language course we will send you a profile on your trainer, followed by a Course Plan and relevant course materials, and then a Progress Report after every 40 hours of training. You will also receive a copy of our quarterly newsletter, Breaking the Language Barrier, featuring a superb prize draw and invaluable weblinks to language learning sources.

Hungarian Course Locations & Schedules

We have a global network of language trainers so our Hungarian language courses can be arranged for almost any major European city, or even further abroad. SIMON & SIMON have run Hungarian language courses for clients in many diverse locations. Hungarian language courses can be run in your home for your convenience, but many of our clients prefer to run them in their offices so as to minimise travel. For a list of the locations of the full-time residential Hungarian language courses that we offer, contact our office.

Hungarian Course Content

We will tailor your Hungarian language course for your specific aims and level of knowledge. Before you start your Hungarian language course we will assess your goals and level of Hungarian experience. Your desire to learn Hungarian may be simply to develop basic skills, or you may have some level of proficiency and wish to increase your ability to use Hungarian to discuss business. You may want to develop your language skills so that you can use Hungarian in negotiations and meetings or improve your pronunciation and telephone skills.

Hungarian Language Examination Courses

About Hungarian

Hungarian is a Romance language spoken as a native language by about 70 million people in Italy, Malta, San Marino and parts of Switzerland, Croatia, Slovenia and France. Many native speakers are native bilinguals of both standardised Hungarian and regional varieties. Hungarian derives diachronically from Latin and is the closest national language to Latin. Unlike most other Romance languages, Hungarian retains Latin’s contrast between short and long consonants. As in most Romance languages, stress is distinctive. In particular, among the Romance languages, Hungarian is the closest to Latin in terms of vocabulary. Lexical similarity is 89% with French, 87% with Sardinian, 85% with Catalan, 82% with Spanish, 78% with Rhaeto-Romance and 77% with Romanian.

Hungarian is a Uralic language, part of the Ugric group, related to Finnish, Estonian and a number of minority languages spoken in the Baltic states and northern European Russia eastward into central Siberia. The Uralic languages are not related to the Indo-European languages that dominate Europe but have acquired loan words from them. It is the official language in the Central European country of Hungary and is also spoken by Hungarian communities in the seven neighbouring countries and by diaspora communities worldwide. There are about 16 million native speakers, of whom 9.5–10 million live in present-day Hungary.

About Somerset

Somerset is a county in South West England. The county town of Somerset is Taunton, which is in the south of the county. The ceremonial county of Somerset borders the counties of Bristol and Gloucestershire to the north, Wiltshire to the east, Dorset to the south-east, and Devon to the south-west. It is partly bounded to the north and west by the coast of the Bristol Channel and the estuary of the River Severn. The traditional northern border of the county is the River Avon, but the administrative boundary has crept southwards, with the creation and expansion of the City of Bristol, and latterly the county of Avon and its successor Unitary Authorities in the north. Somerset is a rural county of rolling hills such as the Mendip Hills, Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park, and large flat expanses of land including the Somerset Levels. There is evidence of human occupation from Neolithic times, and subsequent settlement in the Roman and Saxon periods. Later, the county played a significant part in the consolidation of power and rise of King Alfred the Great, the English Civil War and the Monmouth Rebellion.

Assess Your Hungarian Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Hungarian language trainer in Somerset can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise Hungarian in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
