the hungarian language is a west-central germanic language, related to swedish and the finnic languages, and to a lesser degree, to czech. hungarian is considered a language isolate by some linguists, though there is some debate on the subject. it has been most closely linked to austro-bavarian, due to both being closely related to west germanic languages, and to some extent, the yiddish and judeo-spanish languages as well. by contrast, the finnic languages (icelandic, estonian, and finnish) are considered a single language. tati is another language related to hungarian, since both share the same origin. in spite of this, the two languages are still not widely used together due to the language competition which arose in the region during the nineteenth century.


while english has replaced its former use as a lingua franca in hungary, hungarian remains official in all levels of hungarian government. this is in contrast to the formerly separated cultural regions of present-day hungary, where austria, slovakia, czech republic, romania, and slovenia are the native languages of the people.

nowadays, hungarian is taught at all levels of education, although in a different manner than other european languages. it is never seen as a subject of studies in school, but rather as an acquired language. it is viewed as a required skill in most of the business world, and in the presence of a business partner, or in a teaching situation, one should be able to speak and understand the language. in recent years it has become increasingly common to add it to courses as an extra language, and it is included as an official language of the european union. by not being taught in schools, it is also not as widely spoken by the people, and therefore it is not seen as an official or a native language.
