Months / Hónapok

You will learn the names of days, months and seasons in this lesson. Also, there are basic examples here to show you how to put them into sentences. You can listen the pronounciation with sound files if you click on the name of a link. Unfortunately it will take some minutes until you hear it, since the .wav file needs to be downloaded to your computer first. But then you can save it for future reference. Please note, that I don't provide full vocabulary for my lessons - remember I gave you links to on-line dictionaries, or please use your own dictionary.
Please, give me feedback how it works for you.

Days / Hét napjai

hétfő Monday

In sentences the names of months receive the ending -ban -ben . Please, take a review on the vowel harmony as always if you have to use endings.
januárban, februárban, ..., júniusban,..szeptemberben,..decemberben

For future tense you might use present or future tense of the verbs. To make it easier in the beginning, we use present tense now. The content of the sentence will put the meaning to the future. For simplicity case I use a few examples only with past tense now.
Januárban autót veszek.
I will buy a car in January.
Májusban van a névnapom.
I will have my nameday in May.
Februárban nem volt hó.
