The teachers behind Hungarize

We are Barbi and Laci, the teachers behind Hungarize.
We are both certified teachers of Hungarian as a foreign language.
We met ages ago at university, during our teaching practice.
Laci visited one of Barbi’s classes during our teaching practice where Barbi was using technology in the classroom;
and from that moment on we knew we have very similar opinions about teaching. 🙂

Pál Barbara (Barbi)

Sziasztok! Barbi vagyok.
I have been teaching Hungarian as a foreign language since 2014. I love my job: I like meeting people from different cultures and I love spreading the beauties of Hungarian. 🙂 I used to give private lessons (mostly online), but I also worked in a language school and at a university. Currently I focus on creating resources for all who would like to practice Hungarian.” 👩🏻‍💻

Hajba László (Laci)

Sziasztok! Laci vagyok.
I’m a language teacher, trainer, and materials writer. In the past few years I was teaching in a state school, organised conferences for language teachers and worked with schools to help them teach in a more engaging and fun way. Nowadays I focus almost exclusively on teaching Hungarian in Budapest and online. Also, I’m a gamer and a huge nerd!” 👾
