There was a lot of material covered in Lessons Five to Eight, so this review is meant to help clarify things and for you to get some more practice using the grammar and vocabulary. Also some minor details will be given that were left out of the previous grammar lessons. In each section, grammar and vocabulary may be from all eight lessons, plus maybe a few new words.

Lesson Five Review

In Lesson Five, you learned how to say there is/there are, the irregular verb menni, prepositions of motion, and the difference between hol and hová. For each of these topics there is nothing new to add. If any of these topics seems complicated, hopefully this review will help you because you will see more examples of these principles in use.

You can ask me any questions.

Lesson Six Review

Lesson Six covered the irregular verb jönni, the numbers one to ten, and the various suffixes meaning 'in/on/at' and 'from'. When to use which suffixes can be rather confusing. Look carefully at the following dialogue, which includes several new words: With the numbers, the important thing to remember is that the following noun will always be singular. Here are some sentences:

Lesson Seven Review

Compared to Lessons Five and Six, Lesson Seven was rather easy. You learned the numbers up to 100 and how to form the plural. The following is a list of some words you know, and a couple you don't yet know, along with their plurals. Try covering the right-hand column at first and see if you can come up with the correct plural.

The best way to learn the numbers is to practice using them. Do the following addition problems based on the example given. You will need the word meg, which means 'plus' in this context (it also has other meanings).

Lesson Eight Review

Lesson Eight was rather difficult with a lot of material. Make sure you have read and understand all of the fine points mentioned in the various notes in the grammar section. After Lesson Eight, you should now be able to recognize the patterns of Hungarian. I mean a couple things by this. First, The suffixes for the possessive should be very easy since they follow a pattern very similar to the verb suffixes. So by recognizing this similarity, you will become more proficient at using both verbal and possessive suffixes. Second, now you know that certain nouns seem to be irregular (take different link vowel like házat, drop a vowel like éttermet, etc.) consistently. In theory, grammar at the beginning can be very tough, but once you have an idea of the big picture things should begin to make more sense.

Here are some more sentences using the different possessive structures. In some sentences there are optional words in parentheses:
