Before moving ahead I recommend to read about Hungarian language. The following two articles are not part of my site, but I feel they provide good introduction to my Hungarian lessons.

1. Uralic Languages
Chart of related languages with links
2. About the Hungarian Language.

There are four more reference pages that can help you throughout this class. The first link is my page with an important, basic rule that is so unique specification of the Hungarian language. The second is a good on-line dictionary. The third link leads to a huge Hungarian <==> English dictionary, which is downloadable for free. It is however a DOS program, not for WINDOWS environment. It is worth it to try, even if you don't have experience in DOS environment, since it is really easy to use and it has a huge content. Finally, the last link is another downloadable dictionary, but this one is for windows environment. This is easier to use, but has smaller content. This program lets you challenge yourself on vocabulary, too.
