The Kossuth Foundation Announces Advanced Hungarian Language Classes Starting September 15

September 9, 2016

The Kossuth Foundation offers dynamic, group lessons for adults who can speak Hungarian with ease.  Classes meet once a week at a downtown DC location.  This semester we will have co-teachers; one will lead the class during the first part of the semester, and then the other one takes over.  Both are native speakers with experience teaching Hungarian. The Hungarian Language Program integrates speaking, listening, reading, and writing while learning about Hungarian culture.  If interested, please contact Peter at the Kossuth Foundation: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The other courses that usually are offered (Beginner, Advanced Beginner, and Intermediate) are still being organized.  Information about those courses will be published as soon as possible.  Please excuse the delay—we are a very small non-profit with very limited resources.
