Pronunciation and Reading Practice 2.

This list of minimal pairs, read by Rita Seregélyi and Attila Veress, is taken from the course book Concise Introduction to Hungarian by Peter Sherwood. These minimal pairs provide excellent practice in all vowels and consonants of Hungarian, and especially vowel and consonant length. It contrasts discrete examples for both. The teacher can use it as a starting point for a gap-fill spelling exercise (e.g. students have to fill in the vowels in words, or long v. short consonants) but they can just simply play the recording while students repeat the words. Students can also be asked to write down the words before they are given the list.
