Hungarian Language Course Launched at Carleton University

Hungarian will be offered at Carleton University from September 2017 for the very first time in the history of the university. After many years of hard work, Carleton has reached an agreement with the Government of Hungary through the vital support of the Embassy of Hungary. As a result, the course will be co-sponsored by the Government of Hungary.

Hungarian is a credit language course for complete beginners, no previous knowledge is necessary. It will run 2 × 2 hours per week in the fall and winter terms (from September 2017 until April 2018) that will take students to a solid beginner level (level A1 according to the Common European Framework of Languages). The course will run in the “Less commonly taught languages” category, for which the official registration has already begun at the School of Linguistics and Language Studies at Carleton. More information is available under the code of the course, LANG 1010B – Hungarian.

The course will be promoted on social media platforms as well. Feel free to check out the “Learn Hungarian” site on Facebook (run by Dr. Emese Bukor, the instructor of the Hungarian course at Carleton) or the SLALS Language Resource Room‘s Facebook page to find more information (videos) over the summer about the Hungarian language and culture.

Feel free to share the information with those who might have an interest in studying Hungarian. Those who are currently not students at Carleton can still register for the course as a special student. Students at the University of Ottawa will also be able to register for the course.
