If your native language were part of the European family, then you’d probably have an advanced level by now. Unfortunately, Hungarian is not a member of the Indo-European language family, so it’s perfectly normal for you to take more time. I would also suggest that you slow down and make sure you master basic grammar before attempting anything too advanced, because it would be counter-productive to practice bad grammar all the time. (Also, the advanced grammar builds on intermediate grammar -- you cannot skip steps) In the meantime, you should get a lot of input — listen to music, watch TV series, etc. If your pronunciation is under control, than you may want to read (if you like reading in your mother language). If your pronunciation is not under control, make that a priority — you don’t want to have to relearn 10000 vocabulary words later.

As Deborah told you no one learns a language overnight. So you have to keep up your perseverance and work onyour English to speak it one day in the best possible way. I see this topic obtained a lot of helpful advices from teachers here so follow their recommendations and I firmly believe that you won't regret

Cheer up! I've been learning Polish for about as many hours as you've been learning English - and my Polish is definitely worse than your English! :)

My experiences tell me that being a good listener is the most important thing. I started to learn English two year ago. I have spent much time on Grammar learning and pronunciation practice. But I was not a good listener until half year before.  There are two things I think are very important for you to improve your English in a short time. listening and writing. If you have done those two things good, then try to improve your spoken English. Because the first two things are very useful to make you think everything in English.
