“After studying the Hungarian language for years, I can confidently conclude that had Hungarian been my mother tongue, my work would have been more precious. Simply because through this extraordinary, ancient and powerful language it is possible to precisely describe the tiniest differences and the most secretive tremors of emotions.”
– G. B. Shaw
About the Hungarian School
Many families with toddlers and pre-schoolers come to find friends for their Hungarian-speaking children or to find support for their aspirations of raising their children bilingually. Our elementary and middle-school aged students often attend both school and
Scouts meetings and camps, forming close friendships over the years.Adults who study with us range from tourists preparing for a trip to Europe to 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation Hungarian-Americans wanting to pass the Hungarian citizenship exam to long-time students of HAAW language programs who are at quite an advanced level.
Winter/Spring Session 2021
This Fall, we have been meeting twice a month on Zoom to do various activities with Hungarian-speaking kids ages 4-14. These activities are led by volunteers. Join us on 11/21 at 2pm for our parents & volunteers meeting to plan what winter session will look like, and determine if we have the volunteer capacity to offer something for toddlers and those who are new to the Hungarian language as well.
