What do students say?

"Learning Hungarian has impacted by life because I have been able to learn the language that my grandmother grew up speaking. It has also helped me understand another part of the world that is not talked about a lot and I would recommend to study Hungarian because it is unlike any of the popular languages that are taught regularly."  -Catherine, '20
