The main subjects of pre-high school year, among others, include the following.

Students will study English a minimum of 16 hours per week. Listening, speaking, reading and writing are all taught by our qualified English teachers. English education is based on the standards of CEFR (Common European Framework for Languages). At the time of registration, students sit for APT (Avicenna Placement Test) which exactly measures the knowledge of the student in English and sciences. Based on the result of this test, teachers can plan a reliable course of study for each individual student and monitor the progress of each student throughout the year. We start our courses from A1 and students move up to C2 in English. At specific points, students will take external English exams such as IELTS, FEDE or TOEFL.
Hungarian is taught as a second language to international students. Hungarian students will study “Hungarian Language and Literature”. Hungarian education is also based on the standards of CEFR. Our international students will learn the Hungarian language to the level which enables them to continue their university studies even in Hungarian if they decide so. Hungarian is a rich language which is very structured and in many ways unique. Our education focuses on all four language skills.
