Various Roles as a Teaching Assistant

You'll provide high-quality early childhood education in English through play and everyday situations as well as set activities, resulting in successful language acquisition from a very young age.

What is the Bilingual Program?

This is a private, non-profit, tuition-based educational enterprise operating in Hungarian state and private educational institutions. As such, they are a public-private partnership that has been providing unique educational opportunities to hundreds of families in Hungary since 2001.


Teaching Information:

They operate their nationally accredited program in four primary schools, one high school and two kindergartens in Budapest and its environs. The primary school program encompasses 1st through 8th grade and involves nearly every subject in the curriculum, making it possible for teachers of diverse backgrounds to draw on their training and experience and deliver quality teaching to students aged 6 to 14. The high school program, which begins in Grade 5 and currently runs up through Grade 10, mirrors their primary school program in method and content.

In the kindergarten program, children aged 3 to 6 are immersed in a bilingual environment using the ‘one person, one language model’. Within this context, you’ll provide high-quality early childhood education in English through play and everyday situations as well as set activities, resulting in successful language acquisition from a very young age.

An innovative approach to teaching is provided, including the interactive and communicative approach favoured in EFL environments as well as Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) in subject lessons at all grade levels and in the kindergarten. As such, the company co-teach: teachers hold lessons jointly and alternate in the leading role, switching languages throughout the course of the lesson. Students thus study simultaneously in both English and Hungarian. They are also innovating in terms of technology in teaching, integrating various online learning platforms into our program and making extensive use of tablets in our primary and high school classrooms.
