Senior Teaching Fellow in Hungarian
University College London School of Slavonic and East European Studies
I have been working at UCL/SSEES since 2007, while also writing my doctoral thesis on linguistic purism and attitudes towards language. I teach Hungarian language and language description, reading courses, and English-Hungarian translation. Prior to my teaching appointment at the School, I had taught Hungarian and English to speakers of other languages since 2002. I currently work as a language specialist and examiner for several academic and non-academic institutions in the UK, including the FCO, the European Consortium for the Certificate of Attainment in Modern Languages, and the Hungarian Cultural Centre in London. I regularly participate in conferences organised by subject centres such as LLAS and CEELBAS. I have been an enthusiastic contributor to various outreach events, whose aim is to introduce members of the public and young learners to lesser-known languages and language learning. Among these projects FAVOR is my current favour-ite.
