The Hungarian alphabet

Do you need help with the Hungarian alphabet? We’ve created a video in which we show you the letters of the Hungarian alphabet, demonstrated with a word to help you remember and practice the sounds. Note: In this video we are not pronouncing letters the way we would spell a word. We are pronouncing them the way they actually sound; this helps you practice making these sounds.
