Our general Hungarian language courses are suitable for learners of any level. They aim to enable communication in everyday situations and are an ideal way to improve your knowledge of Hungarian, whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned speaker. A general course focuses predominantly on grammar and vocabulary, supported by development of speaking, reading, and listening skills. General courses are ideal if you want to attain or improve on an all-round level of Hungarian, or build a strong foundation before moving on to business Hungarian training.
Our Hungarian group courses are targeted for sets of 2-12 people, all of whom have the same requirements from learning Hungarian. Everybody should be at about the same level at the start of the course, and the entire group should be able to meet at the same time and place each week. Grammar and vocabulary form the backbone of the general course, helping the student gain fluency in conversational topics whilst increasing their overall working Hungarian knowledge. For groups who wish to engage in further Hungarian study, the general course is an excellent starting point.
One-to-one business Hungarian courses are aimed at learners who already have at least a working knowledge of Hungarian, but would like to further develop their skills in business communication. Our courses can be adapted to focus on your particular industry, and your trainer can help you with specific areas of skill development, such as report-writing, dictation, or business correspondence. Business Hungarian courses are great for any professionals who would benefit from further knowledge of Hungarian, including those working in multinational companies, preparing for international transfer, or seeking a new position. Many of our business students work in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, academia, and government.
Group business Hungarian courses are intended for small groups (of 2 to 12 students) who already have a working knowledge of Hungarian, and want to extend their skills in the arena of business language. Your group should have approximately the same level of Hungarian, whether that be intermediate, upper intermediate, or advanced. You should all be available at the same time every week, and have complementary learning aims. Your trainer will develop your course around your group's language goals and particular field of business, and can incorporate any specific areas of focus, such as improving negotiation or presentation skills. Group business language courses are suitable for a wide range of organisations, including multinational companies, and those whose employees require a higher level of Hungarian to develop international business relationships.
Specific purpose courses in Hungarian are aimed at those who already have semi-proficient skills in Hungarian but wish to improve in particular areas of expertise. Your teacher can guide you through many features of Hungarian to help you gain fluency, linguistic or not. These may include:
• Accent softening / pronunciation
Developing existing aptitude for writing, reading, listening, speaking, etc.
• Language for international travel Business communication skills (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. proposals, reports, formal correspondence)
• Vocabulary for particular industry (e.g. medical, legal, HR, engineering, accounting)
• Understanding historical and cultural context
If your group of 2-12 Hungarian learners require the same set of particular skills as well as a standard language course, our specific purpose group Hungarian courses can really help make a difference. So long as the whole group is at about the same stage of learning Hungarian, we can help improve their overall understanding by arranging classes focusing on improving the following:
• Elocution and softening of native accent
• Improving specific skills (writing, comprehension, listening, etc.)
• Language for international travel
• Business communication skills (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
• Vocabulary for relevant industry (e.g. medical, legal, HR, engineering, accounting)
• Cultural and historical sensitivity
"Our native speaker qualified Hungarian language teachers can train you and your colleagues at your office or home at a time to suit you. Classes can be any day of the week (even weekends) in the morning."
