What is the course about?
To develop intermediate communication skills for daily conversation topics and extend your knowledge by working on more complex grammatical structures and functions.
All four skills (reading, listening, speaking and writing) are practised with particular emphasis on spoken/conversational language.
During the course there will be lots of opportunities to do project work according to the students’ interest and students' extra time.
This is a live online course. You will need:
- Internet connection. The classes work best with Chrome.
- A computer with microphone and camera is best (e.g. a PC/laptop/iMac/MacBook), or a tablet/iPad/smart phone/iPhone if you don't have a computer.
We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.
What will we cover?
Based on units 5 & 6 of MagyarOK 2
The topics covered are varied: What did we learn at school / School systems in Hungary and France / From the final exam to the university / Study abroad / Articles about mental capacities / Job interviews and CVs / My best colleagues / An article about a survey at work
The units of MagyarOK continuously revise various grammar points and gradually extend them. The main focus will be on the relative clause, the past tense, time expressions and related suffixes.
What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...
· express preferences about what you liked at school
· distinguish positive and negative consequences
· talk about your experience at school and university
· describe your school and university systems
· use frequent everyday expressions in telephone calls
· write applications, CVs and formal letters
· talk about a colleague.
What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
The course is intended for learners who have completed Hungarian 4: module 2, or who have an equivalent level (roughly three years of study).
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
Our courses are characterised by spoken interaction and communication. Typical activities include pair work, group work, role plays and games. A range of resources will be used to support your learning including presentations, hand-outs, and audio-visual material.
Homework is highly recommended to consolidate learning.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
Students only need to have the textbook titled MagyarOK2. The textbooks can be ordered here: www.magyar-ok.hu
Apart from the material in the textbook (MagyarOK 2), the teacher will provide the class with supplementary material (authentic texts, videos, audio materials, etc.). The textbook includes online material with lots of useful additional materials such as the answer keys to exercises, vocabulary and a collection of useful expressions for each unit, all the audio recordings, and grammatical explanations.
When I've finished, what course can I do next?
to be discussed with your tutor.
Eva started teaching younger pupils English when she was still at grammar school and then went on to university to major in English and Hungarian. She also studied ethnography since she was deeply interested in her own country’s cultural and intellectual background. Eva has taught Hungarian at all levels and has experience teaching at colleges, universities and government organisations. She loves to see the enthusiasm of adult students when they start learning Hungarian and to watch how they become inspired to learn more about the language. Eva has translated books for children from English into Hungarian. She has also translated essays by George Orwell. When she is not teaching, she likes taking long walks, gardening and practicing yoga.
