Flascards for Hungharian and any other languge.

Have you ever heard about flash card ? 

According to the Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia :

"A flashcard or flash card is a set of cards bearing information, as words or numbers, on either or both sides, used in classroom drills or in private study. One writes a question on a card and an answer overleaf. Flashcards can bear vocabulary, historical dates, formulas or any subject matter that can be learned via a question and answer format. Flashcards are widely used as a learning drill to aid memorization by way of spaced repetition." 

I am an addicted to the flashcards, I cannot imagine my language studies without a set of flash cards, no matter what language or method I am studying with, flashcard is a compulsory element, so as an extra help for my Pimsleur Hungarian lessons, I prepared a set of flashcards for the first 3 lessons, the most difficult for a beginner with no previous knowledge. 

Set of free pdf flashcard for the Hungarian lessons:
Lesson 01 - pdf
Lesson 02 - pdf  Lesson 03 - pdf

Cut your flashcards and fold them.

Pile and organise them.

Mantain them organised in bags
and study them.
Rules to Use Pimsler (by the producers):In order to gain the full benefits from the Pimsleur Language Programs, stick to the guidelines below.
  • Choose a quiet place where you can practice without interruption and a time of day when your mind is most alert and your body least fatigued. You might study in your car, listening to the program while you commute or travel.
  • Once you've started the program, simply follow the tutor's instructions.
  • Speak out loud when directed by the tutor and answer questions. There will be pauses after every instruction, giving you time to reply. It is essential to your progress that you speak out in a normal conversational voice when asked to respond. Your active participation in thinking and speaking is required for your success in mastering this course. After your response, a confirmation will be provided as reinforcement.
  • Do not have a paper and pen nearby during the lessons, and do not refer to dictionaries or other books. The Pimsleur Method works with the language-learning portion of your mind, requiring language to be processed in its spoken form. You will only interrupt the learning process if you try to write the words you hear.
  • Complete the lesson units in strict consecutive order-don't skip around!
  • Try your best to work through only one particular lesson (30 minutes long) each and every day. Dr. Pimsleur's research shows 30 minutes to be the optimum period for learning language, after which the mind loses its ability to retain new information. Although you should do no more than one particular lesson per day, you can repeat the same lesson unit any time during the day.
  • If you are responding correctly about eighty percent of the time, then you're ready to proceed to the next lesson on the following day. It is important to keep moving forward, but also not to set unreasonable standards of perfection that will keep you from progressing, which is why we recommend the eighty percent figure as a guide.
  • If you do not feel comfortable moving on to the next lesson, simply repeat the lesson. Daily contact with the language is critical to successful learning. As long as one lesson is completed each day, even if it is repeated, you will be making progress!
