Our Fall Language Program Has Gone Virtual

Our Kossuth Foundation Language Program is in full swing this fall with eight courses at all levels. We
have 50 students, who are mostly in the DC area. All lessons are taught using the Zoom virtual platform.
"A positive outcome of fully online learning: We can have students who are not local and are able to
participate from different states/countries." – Ibolya Latran (one of our teachers). Some students attend
classes from as far away as Philadelphia, Houston, Boston, New Mexico, and even Europe.

Much of our success is due to our wonderful teachers who are all native speakers with experience in
language education and to our Language Program Coordinator, Mr. Peter Berty, who is one of our
advanced class students and a former officer and director of the Foundation. "I have really enjoyed the
Hungarian classes …. I’ve been very impressed by the knowledge and patience of [my teachers], you
have a great team!" – Katherine (one of our students).

We will be moving to a tuition-based platform next year but will offer tuition forgiveness to those who
need financial help in exchange for a commitment to work as a volunteer to help with our programs. We
also will be searching for someone to work part time in helping to manage the program. Please contact
us if you can help or would like to participate.

In the Summer of 2020, the Kossuth Foundation was awarded a generous 1,250,000 HUF grant from the Bethlen Gabor Foundation (Bethlen Gábor Alapitvány or BGA) to support the Kossuth Foundation’s adult Hungarian language education program. The BGA is supported by the National Policy Research Institute (Nemzetpolitikai Kutatóintézet) of the Government of Hungary. Upon hearing of the grant award, Gabor Rozsa, Executive Director of the Foundation, said “We are enormously appreciative of the generous support we have received from the Bethlen Gabor Foundation and the Hungarian Government.”
