Learning Hungarian Takes a Long Time

These days, everybody is all about efficient learning. You can learn in your car, while driving; at home via the Internet; during jogging; or while you are at an important meeting. You learn not only what you need to learn because there is no time for more.

However, there is a great disadvantage to this philosophy: when it comes to learning a language, some is not enough.

Your intelligence will be judged by your language skills. Do you really want to be judged by based on some of your knowledge? I think not.

So please aim to learn everything because some will not get you very far, especially with a language like Hungarian. We constantly use every attachment and each possible order of the words in any given sentence. Learning only a portion of the whole will leave huge gaps and after a while, you won’t remember what you know and what you don’t.


I have seen people question their whole existence based on one single mistake with a pronoun, which they couldn’t figure out.

You don’t have to believe me, you can choose the hard way. However, if you want to test this theory, just take a subject you learnt and imagine that someone asks you questions about it: would you experience fear of failure?

Now take this imagined fear and think: do you like it?

Because if you don’t learn the whole, you will experience this fear every single day. You never know when it’ll hit you.

Learning takes a long time and there is nothing we can do about it. Either we accept it or have an unnecessary fight.

Much like most people, I like to be all sorts of things.

P.S.: some of articles are edited and co-written by a mysterious person called Tatjana. But I take all the credit.
