This course has been designed for English speaking university students, who have come to Hungary to attend a semester at a Hungarian university.
The Babilon Languageschool holds an intensive course in conversational Hungarian during the two-week period immediately preceding the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics semester.
We are confident that, like many previous course participants, you will find it a highly rewarding professional and cross-cultural experience.
This language course is not part of the BSM program; it should not be confused with the slower-paced Hungarian language course offered for credit by BSM during the term.
However, our course has been designed specifically for BSM participants and has been tested and improved for over a decade.

WHAT WE OFFER
It is an 80-hour intensive "Survival Hungarian" course
In addition to the classroom sessions, lectures and workshops (syllabus), the program includes walking tours of the town, providing ample opportunity for practising basic Hungarian conversation.
During the two weeks you will have a chance to meet some Hungarian students who will help you to get around in this marvelous city.
There will also be cultural events, like a special tour of the Hungarian Parliament. While you may well get by in Budapest just speaking English, many students have found that this language course helps to enhance their experience.
If you decide to participate in the language course, we recommend that you arrive in Budapest a few days earlier to reduce your jet-lag before classes start. Please let us know in advance if you do not expect to arrive in time for the first day of classes.
The fee for the language course is 80,000 Hungarian forints, to be paid on registration in Hungarian currency.
The fee includes the textbooks. It does not include the dictionaries.
