This course was accessible and progress could be measured. The teacher was supportive and helpful, providing extra resources. it's my first time learning a language since school and I feel I have made great progress in a short period of time. The structure of the course allows me to know where I still need to work and how to go about it.

As difficult as hungarian language can be to learn, the course was rather fun. The class mates were very participative, and teacher had great knowledge and good sense of humor that made everything much easier and pleasureable, with memory games, songs and other enjoyable methods. I'd definetly recommend it.
