A Few Words About Learning Hungarian

Our Story

about hungarian lesson with szuzsi
Sziasztok! This is Zsuzsi the creator of Hungarian Lesson with Zsuzsi and I would like to tell you how I built this very popular school.
 
In 2015, I launched a free online video series called Hungarian Lesson with Zsuzsi, in which I try to help Hungarian learners with free short Hungarian language lessons.
 
But we have to go back to 2010 as I have been teaching Hungarian as a foreign language since I received my degree at the University of Pannonia at the Department of Hungarian Language and Literature and Theater Studies, where I also obtained a pedagogical qualification.
After graduating I started working in various language schools, but after a while, I realized that I would like to provide a different strategy and higher quality of education. So I decided to work as a freelancer in 2015 and since I was also very lucky to be able to set up Hungarian Lesson with Zsuzsi, a language school that provides online services and offline lessons in the center of Budapest.
 
Our approach is a speech-focused way of learning Hungarian lessons, We try to provide students with useful knowledge and prepare them to take their place in a Hungarian-speaking environment. In these lessons, we mainly speak Hungarian. My theater studies at the university and acting in a theater for a while allowing me to make my classes interesting with creative assignments, situational games, drama plays, and dialogues.
