The first session is a consultation, where I assess your skills and level and we discuss your aims and requirements.
During your course we focus on all four skills:
Grammar, vocabulary, spelling and pronunciation exercises are also integrated in order to enable you to communicate more effectively in Hungarian.
I will design your course to suit your needs and give you individual attention throughout the course. I use a wide range of engaging materials including videos, audios, interactive learning materials etc.
I also provide sufficient homework, regular feedback and supplementary materials.
I'm a native Hungarian speaker teaching this unique language to adult learners in SW London or via skype.
Most of my students learn Hungarian because they are fortunate enough to have a Hungarian partner:) (or for professional reasons) I teach using the communicative method, usually we follow a coursebook-workbook which is the core of the course. In addition I also use authentic supplementary materials including videos, articles, images to make you really talk in Hungarian. I have a TEFL degree, that's how I acquired the teaching skills, that can be transferred to teaching my mother tongue.
I am a reliable, flexible, open-minded, patient person and have more than 15 years’ experience in teaching English as a foreign language using the communicative method. Recently I also started teaching Hungarian as a foreign language.
I can plan and deliver well-structured, engaging and motivating lessons in accordance with the students’ needs and the course syllabus. I keep an eye on details and my teaching and administration are of the highest quality standards.
