Just started learning Hungarian, looking for general language learning tips.

So, I just started using duolingo a week ago. I thought I might ask what I should probably be doing on top of my duolingo courses to help progress in this language.

Keep a notebook for vocab and grammar. Increase vocab with Memrise. Once you get a bit further - Peppa Malac. If you have access to a grammar bok it may help explain things - and do the exercises - don't just read the theory.

I have found in other languages (I'm taking a break from Hungarian and the others to focus on German and try to actually learn the language versus the words I've always been hearing) that flash cards can help with vocabulary, and speaking to a person who speaks the language your learning and English helps (if you are a native English speaker). I hope that these (and the many other ways to practice) prove helpful to you! Enjoy your journey of learning!

Look about Hungarian phrases on Youtube, it will help a lot. As a native speaker of hungarian, I think the vowel harmony is one of the hardest thing to learn for a foreign.

Do what's caleld shadowing - play an audio (the ones in duolingo lessons are a perfect start - when the enxt one come look away) and starte repeating a word you jsut heard while the others are coming and repeat those too, you will be one word behind - it is super hard at first but then it will improve your automaticity - this concept isn't mine it has been suggested by a famous youtuber from the channel called Langfocus, I have been trying it and it is helping
