Summary/Abstract: The essence of teaching and learning a foreign language lies primarily in the contrast and transferability of the person learning the language. The teacher should be aware of the difficulties faced by students in learning Hungarian. That is why s/he needs to see from an objective vantage point what is obvious to the native speaker. The rules that we provide our students with are not just about describing the form but about giving them the key to forming sentences, using the language. There is a great need for the teacher to have a general picture of the pupils’ language so that they can compare the similarities and differences with the Hungarian. This will make it more accurate for him/her, what s/he should actually teach and how to do it. In this paper, I discuss the sentence and the learning problems that I experience when working with Romanian students in Bucharest.
