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 Language School holds an intensive course in conversational Hungarian during the two-week period immediately preceding Fall and Spring semesters both at Budapest Semesters in Mathematics and at AIT-Budapest.
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 or AIT-Budapest program; it should not be confused with the slower-paced Hungarian language course offered for credit by those schools during the term.
However, our course has been designed specifically for BSM and AIT participants and has been tested and improved for over two decades.
