Experience Hodmezovasarhely, (HOD-mezer-vah-shar-hey) Hungary: Rural vineyards, quaint neighborhoods, verdant parks, sidewalk cafes and art galleries -- All compelling indicators of the recent European Union partner's vibrant culture.
After less than two decades of independence, Hungary has adopted English as the language of commerce, technology and opportunity. English is now widely spoken on the street and in business, and is mandatory in classrooms.
You're needed to teach conversational English to Hungary's future leaders! Public schools administrators are requesting help with lessons and language exercises for elementary, high school, and adult students. Be sure to pack your creativity and enthusiasm!

Hungary Work Projects
Teaching in Hungary Global Volunteers' unique philosophy of service ensures your work projects help advance the host community's current development vision and goals. Always serving at the invitation and under the direction of host community partners, each Global Volunteers team member works alongside local people, and personally contributes to needed project financing through their service program fee. Our long-term commitment to work in partnership on sustained community development projects enables you, in just a short time, to serve as a critical link in a chain of lasting community enhancements.
Our Hungarian hosts have asked us to teach conversational English under the direction of Hungarian teachers. You'll assist in the day's classroom work using student texts and established lesson plans provided by the teacher. You will also have opportunities to depart from the formal lessons. For example, you can serve as a resource on topics of North American culture, including discussions on history, daily lifestyle, sports, and school systems. American songs, games, dialogues, letter writing, plays, flash cards, and discussions are the primary techniques used depending on the ages and proficiency of the students.
The mayor, teachers and school administrators in the city of Hódmezõvásárhely are anxious for their students to "catch up" with their Western European counterparts in English proficiency. Because Hungarian English teachers speak English as a second, third or perhaps fourth language, they need help from volunteers to teach pronunciation, idioms, and syntax. Over time, working with several native English speakers for many weeks each year - year after year - the students gain confidence and agility. You can truly make an enormous difference in the lives of Hungarian students by teaching conversational English, even for just a week or two!
