RTL Klub TV channel recently made a short film about bilingual education focusing on the work of the Bilingual.hu Program. It aired at 9:35am on Sunday, November 5, 2017.
Our Kindergarten videos:
Videos about our Primary School Program:
At the end of every school year, each child in the Bilingual.hu Program completes an interview with their main class teacher. Here are two good examples, both filmed at the end of Grade 8, one from Bianka (2014) and one from Katinka (2016). Both girls started in our kindergarten program at the age of three; neither family lived abroad, nor was either family bilingual. So while both Bianka and Katinka were very good students, they are also in many ways average representatives of our program.
These videos are also good examples of the type of methods we employ. We emphasize activities that are interactive, enjoyable and communicative. We also integrate content and language in order to provide an environment rich in English language, culture and subject content – so that for our students, English is not primarily a subject but a natural communication tool.
In the mathematics clip, we see a targeted review lesson with activities designed to practice both math content and language. We also see two different types of teacher demonstrations.
In the first example below, filmed in November of 2016, a typical lower school grouping of four students, in this case in Grade 1, collaborates to practice math with their teacher, focusing on key mathematical concepts and expressions, and even pronunciation.
