Learn Hungarian in Hungary

Hungary is a unique place so it’s only fitting that it should have a unique language (its only distant relatives being Finnish and Estonian). Learn Hungarian in Hungary with ESL; visit the home of Magyar culture and discover a country of charming rural scenery and one of the great European capital cities.

Budapest is as exciting as it is beautiful. Relatively cheap compared to other European capital cities, you will never run out of cultured galleries, charming cafes and fascinating museums to explore. The Hungarian National Museum is a good place to start and a great place to practise your language skills. In the evenings, cheap beer and a dedication to partying make Budapest’s bars and clubs great value. Budapest is also home to one of the world’s largest annual music festival – Sziget – which takes place in August each year. Hundreds of thousands of people descend from all over the world to enjoy a musical event with a distinctly Hungarian atmosphere.

Some say that the best way to explore Hungary is on horseback. Centuries of horse breeding and perfect rural scenery certainly make it tempting. Hungary consists of a large expanse of countryside, including forested hills in the north and broad plains in the south, dotted with rural towns. The country’s rivers and lakes are perfect for water sports and fishing. After all the activity, you will probably want to tuck into the famous Hungarian goulash (called pörkölt in Hungarian), but you should definitely try some alternatives too, like paprikás csirke (chicken in paprika sauce) and halászlé (paprika fish soup). Wash it down with a glass of Egri Bikavér, the full-blooded Hungarian red wine of choice or a shot of Pálinka – strong, fruity liquor that is drunk in huge quantities. And then you’re ready to start the evening!
