When I started to learn Hungarian several years ago, I used a book from our local (Gt.Yarmouth) library called (appropriately) "Learn Hungarian". One of the authors was a Mr.Banhidi but can't remember the other. The lessons were pretty interesting - a bit of vocab, a bit of grammar, a conversation/description, and several drawings, cartoons and songs.
