Language Courses for Erasmus Students
The Language Teaching Centre
(known as IOK, Idegennyelvi Oktatási Központ)
of the University of Miskolc
currently offers language courses scheduled especially for Erasmus students
and exchange students from other universities
in Beginning Hungarian and in Advanced English.
For all Language Teaching Centre classes, there is an attendance policy – you must attend at least 70% of the classes and pass all tests and other assessments with a score of at least 60% in order to get credit.
This class meets twice a week for two periods each time. It offers four credits. The timetable will be supplied to you by the Erasmus Coordinator at the beginning of the semester.
The class covers basic Hungarian grammar and useful vocabulary. It is designed to help you get around, do your shopping, etc.
The teacher is Ms. Szokoli (Szokoli Katalin) [Office 208, Building C/1].
If there is demand for a higher-level course and if the teacher’s teaching load permits, it may be possible to arrange a class at a higher level.
This class meets once a week for two periods. It offers two credits.
Class activities are usually focused around a newspaper article, discussion of it, and some connected writing assignment. Attention is paid to the language used in different situations, especially academic English versus ‘general’ English.
In addition, students will be introduced to the English Teaching Resource Center and asked to choose materials to work with independently. This allows students to address areas of special interest, particular weakness, etc.
The syllabus is somewhat flexible, and if students have special requests, it may be possible to work them into the syllabus.
Hungarian students from any faculty of the university are also very welcome to join, including participation as a part of another English class. See the teacher, please, to discuss Neptun registration.
The class is taught by Robin L. Nagano, a native English speaker [Office 206, Building C/1].
If there is enough demand for an intermediate-level course and if the teacher’s teaching load permits, it may be possible to arrange an intermediate class also. If not, there is the possibility of joining English classes with Hungarian students.
The Language Teaching Centre offers classes at various levels in German, Italian, Russian and Spanish. You are welcome to join these classes, with the permission of the teacher.
Please be aware that Hungarian is usually the language of instruction, and that translation tasks are common. These classes typically meet twice a week.
If you would like help in arranging to take classes in other languages, see either Robin L. Nagano or the IOK adminstration office [Office 203, Building C/1].
