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.
With our one-to-one Hungarian business courses, you can develop your current Hungarian skills to incorporate them effortlessly into your job - perfect for those employed by multinational organisations, moving abroad to work, or in search of employment overseas. Lessons are designed around your sector of industry and field of work, and tutors can aid learners in improving individual skills required by your role, such as giving presentations, writing reports or composing formal written correspondence.
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.
Designed for those already with a good grasp of Hungarian, who may have designs to use their acquired language for specific purposes, these courses can incorporate various skills and practices that help make the difference between sticking out like a sore thumb and blending in like a local, including:
• 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
As long as all members of a group Hungarian course are at a similar level of expertise, specific purpose Hungarian courses can be customised to suit the needs of the group of 2-12 students with similar learning aims. These often include:
Vocabulary related to the industry (legal, HR, engineering, accounting, medical etc.)
• Accent softening and elocution
• Expanding upon existing aspects (writing, speaking, listening, reading etc.)
• Language for travelling
• Communication skills in business (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Writing skills in business (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
• Historical and cultural 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."
