Hungarian Language and Culture Course at USP

Are you planning to spend your CSF scholarship in Hungary, but you are afraid of the „magyar” language? Imagine that you can be well-prepared and speak a bit of Hungarian before your arrival!

Have you already spent a year in Hungary and now you wonder how to get the best out of your new language skill? How about passing a certified language exam?

Or do you regret not spending time to study Hungarian while you used to live in Magyarország? It is never too late!

Are you interested in Hungarian culture? Now it is possible to learn more about it!

If you have any of these questions, then let me acquaint you with an excellent opportunity offered by the Hungarian Rectors’ Conference: from May 2015 you can study Hungarian language and culture at the University of São Paulo (Universidade de São Paulo – Faculdade de Filosofia, Letras e Ciências Humanas Departamento de Línguas Orientais). As the course is sponsored by the Foundation Pallas Athéné Domus Animae  (PADA) it is free of charge and, for your convenience, a wide range of dates are offered: during daytime, in the evening and even on Saturdays. Study the language, get familiar with the Hungarian history, art, culture and traditions. Meet interesting Hungarian people and participate at Hungarian cultural events.


The course is organized by the University of Pécs, which also provides the students with professional teaching method and material. The native speaker teacher holds Master Degree in Hungarian as a Foreign Language from Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), but speaks fluent Portuguese.


In the end of the course, optionally, you can take an ECL language exam (European Consortium for the Certificate of Attainment in Modern Langugaes) which is Europe-wide recognized. The moduls are equivalent of the CEFR, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.


Come and study Hungarian at Departamento de Letras Orientais, at USP (address: Av. Prof. Luciano Gualberto, 403 Cidade Universitária)
