Learning all of these topics in our mother tongue strengthens their language skills, and drama teaching assists their self-confidence and ability to express themselves.

They will also analyse folk tales during the academic year through which they can learn how the colorful the Hungarian language is, the life at different regions and develop their reading and comprehension skills.

Youth Group (13–18 évesek): Blue Group

It is extremely difficult to be an adolescent, especially in a foreign country, away from the motherland. This may cause some confusion in the formation of identity, lack of knowledge of their own culture. Communication in a foreign language can make it difficult to express feelings and acquire friends. There might be a breakdown in communication even if they are using their mother tongue.  We would like to help with fun, exciting programs.

We want to pay extra attention to our teenagers and young adults.
Some are at the brink of a career choice with their college and university years’ lying ahead. They are at a very sensitive stage of their personal and social development.

Although this age group can choose which session to attend, we recommend that the final choice is made by consulting parents.

Through a session, they learn:

  • Fluent language usage through psychology topics, literacy and history
  • Conflict-handling, self-awareness, assertive communication
  • Gain creativity and expert association on Hungarian language
  • Work on contemporary project as a team: YouTube channel, video editing, sound engineering, studio time, music writing, design, project management, interview and portfolio creation.
  • Also gain higher self-esteem, work experience, employability, networking and have fun together!
