Hungarian Culture

Szia! My name is Franck and I am originally from France.

I  was a Project Assistant at the Hungarian Language School for the summer 2019. As an intern I could also participate at the super-intensive courses organised by the school.

As part of the summer programme I could visit several monuments and discover the Hungarian culture.

With the help of my colleagues and classmates, specially to Gabriela Linan and Héloïse Lachenal, I organized a conference about studying at a Hungarian University with Scholarship: Stipendium Hungaricum or Erasmus+ (you may see the pictures of this event below).

Our partners for this event was: Tempus Public Foundation, The Young Mongolia Initiativeand Education Europe Group.

It was successful and very interesting.

From cultural to educational aspects, I could understand more the country and I improved my adaptability to live abroad.

This page is dedicated to my experience in Budapest and to everything that I have done during these 2 months at the Hungarian Language School.​

What a beautiful experience !!!

Do not hesitate to contact me.
