Defense Language Institute Hungarian  - Image This volume introduces basic material for the Hungarian language and has the following objectives:

1. to refine your skills in transcribing and translating,
2. to enable you to recognize basic radio communications procedures terms, and
3. to provide practice for recognition of basic communications procedures terms in Hungarian.

It is not intended to train you here to become an opera-tor or expert on procedures for proper use of communications equipment. It is considered essential, however, to explain certain technical terms in English to facilitate your learning of those terms in Hungarian. When you use a radio for two-way communications, such as a Citizens Band (CB) radio, and experience static, interference or other problems, you will first correct, adjust, or otherwise solve the problem, if possible; then carry on a con-versation proper. The terminology used for such corrective action is the "procedures terms" of this volume. By fully understanding and thoroughly mastering these terms in Hungarian, you will be able to concentrate on the subject matter of com-munications, the essence of your job. The procedures terms are presented in separate phrases in six lessons. The exercises in the appendix of this volume contain simulated military situations in which various stations use procedural terms during radio transmissions.

This volume has been developed specifically as a supplement to meet the specialized needs of NCTS students and to allow introduction of individual lessons at any level of the Hungarian Basic Course. It is recommended, however, that the lessons be used aftec the 27th week of instruction, preferably interspersed with the units of the Aural Comorehension Course. This vflume includes six lessons and an appendix. Each lesson has the following components:
Text Vocabulary List Transcription Exercise Translation Exercise

The appendix contains transcription and translation exercises in four sections:
-Procedural Exercises Military Conversations (Air Force)
-Military Conversations (Army)
-Consolidated Vocabulary List

All vocabulary lists and transcription exercises are recorded on audio and will be issued to you together with this volume.
