MISI - Hungarian School

MISI Hungarian School winter/spring course starts February 6, 2016

The classes are designed to provide the children the opportunity to succeed to read and write in Hungarian, with particular emphasis on reading and conversation. Our position is that by acquiring an ability to read in Hungarian the student is provided an indirect means of continued proficiency in the language, and that through reading they might learn about and develop an interest in the Hungarian culture.

In light of these developments, we have begun to organize the language classes.

Groups/Teachers

The five children's groups will be taught by 5 teachers.

Bernadett Czettisch will be teaching the 3 to 5 year old Óvoda group.

Zsuzsanna Matika will be teaching the 5 to 7 year old Kis Mókus group of students. 

For older students - Haladó/Advanced Nagy Mókus group - who have already learned to read and write in English, and are fluent in HungarianJúlia Dukai will be their instructor.  

Eva Kish will be teaching the 5- up Beginner Nagy Mókus group of students. While those children will have an advantage if they have an active or passive understanding of spoken Hungarian, this skill is not a prerequisite for attending Beginner Nagy Mókus class.

We are hopeful that the children and the parents will find the Hungarian lessons useful. We will do our best to give the children a foundation in the Hungarian language that they will be able to use later. It is also our hope that the successful implementation of this two-course series will provide a foundation for the continuation of a Hungarian school. It is our hope that the children will acquire a structural and thematic approach to the Hungarian language, in reading and writing through these classes, but that they also  arouse an interest in a continued understanding and appreciation of Hungarian culture.
