List of online glossaries (Hungarian – Estonian, Finnish, German, Italian)
The partners of the Hungarobox project have compiled a list of existing online glossaries of Hungarian. The list consists of glossaries and dictionaries in Hungarian as well as bilingual glossaries in Hungarian – Italian/German/Finnish/Estonian. The list contains a link and a short description of the glossaries.
The list has been updated and the links have been checked in June 2015.
Below you will find a collection of links that provides further materials related to learning, using and teaching Hungarian. To each of them there is a short description provided for easier navigation. In addition, where appropriate, a suggested level is also given, which signals the approximate level of learner proficiency where learners can make the most use of the given link.
