Begin learning Hungarian as you live with a host family and study at a local high school. As you make friends with your Hungarian classmates and begin to explore your new environment, you'll develop an appreciation for Hungarian culture, food, and music. Music is an important part of Hungarian life and students have the opportunity to attend a special music school, or take music lessons after morning classes. During your stay you'll learn what daily life is like in Hungary and have an experience that will stay with you long after you leave.
You will attend a gimnàzium (academic secondary school). English is taught as the primary second language. German, French, Russian, and Italian are taught as well. Hungarian schools emphasize physical education, morality, and familiarity with the arts.
