Summary of the Hungarobox Project

The two-year long Hungarobox Learning Partnership project has been successfully concluded. The project brought together five institutions from Finland, Estonia, Germany, Hungary and Italy, each of them dealing with adult education and the teaching of Hungarian as a foreign language. Hungary was represented by Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary in the project.

The main goal of the project was to share and change experience and good practices among the partner organisations, especially in the field of teaching vocabulary, lexicography and terminology and to get acquainted with other educational institutions’ practices.

In the framework of the international cooperation a multilingual online glossary has been prepared as well, containing commonly used vocabulary and expressions of the topic of Information Communication and Technology in the languages of the partners, combined with an exercise package. In addition to partner meetings, workshops and seminars for teachers of Hungarian have been organised as well.

All achievements of the project will be available on the webpage of Hungarobox soon:  www.hungarobox.eu
