During your time in Hungary you’ll have the opportunity to gain an intimate knowledge of this ancient and proud Eastern European nation. By living with a host family and attending a local school, you’ll be completely immersed in the Hungarian language and culture. You’ll get to explore Hungary not as a tourist but as a true member of the community – an experience not many American teenagers can claim!
Old World is the way of life here: families take pride in their roots and honor tradition. Hungary is like no other country: the language, the culture, the history – it is truly unique unto itself. The Hungarian language is not related to any other European language so you might find it challenging to learn, but don’t worry, you’ll have help from local volunteers and your host school.
