LEARNING HUNGARIAN AND CZECH WITH NATIVE SPEAKERS

Lecturers from Hungary and Czech Republic arrived to Yugra State University


The South-Moravian Center for International Mobility officer Ian Prokesh who is not new to students of YSU will teach Czech language.


A guest from Hungary Jozsef Balázsi came to Khanty-Mansiysk for the first time. He is going to teach students Hungarian language as well as give lectures on the following subjects: «Finno-Ugric linguistics», «Ethnic linguistics» and «Language concepts and basic universals».


Jozsef Balázsi is fluent in Russian and knows English and German.


«I was born in 1954, the time when Russian language was a compulsory subject in Hungarian schools since 5-th grade. Besides I studied Hungarian language and philology, Russian language and literature and also general and applied linguistics departments of Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest). During my student years I held pre-entry courses on Hungarian, Russian and English languages for university entrants», - explains Jozsef.


According to Jozsef Balázsi, a person having mastered two languages learns the following ones much easier. He already began his lectures and is pleased with Yugra State University students.
