Hungarian: One of the most hardest languages for English speakers
I've tried Hungarian on Duolingo and I was sooo confused. The sentence structure and word order can be really hard to figure out sometimes. I read online that Hungarian is one of the hardest languages for a native English speaker to learn. I wasn't really surprised :P. It's not entirely hard but I find many sentences tricky to translate.
Whenever I do a lesson, I go over it 3 or 4 times again afterwards because the vocab is so tricky and it helps me retain it better (that's why I only just completed Basics 2 but am Level 6). If you really work hard to get the first words in your head learning new ones won't be quite so difficult (although still pretty hard).
It will be hard in the beginning (I should know, I have been doing the reverse course - English for Hungarian speakers - until now!), but I promise you, once you have enough practice, everything about the alien grammar will start to "click" into place!
Also, make sure to check out HungarianReference.com, those are the best "lesson notes" for Hungarian that one can ask for!
