Funside Balaton has always been international, with close to two dozens countries represented at the camp each year. Families with Hungarian roots, children with Hungarian ancestors, as well as expatriates living in Hungary regularly reach out to us precisely because of our Hungarian as a second language program for children. Our classes are not only fun and tailored specifically for the needs of this age group, but also include cultural elements beside the language. We also have beginners’ groups every week.
At the Funside Balaton Hungarian Camp, we work with our own project-based curriculum, so all learning material is provided by us. Classes take two 120-minute lessons each day, Monday through Friday, in small classes (4 to 8 students per class), based on language level and age. Our unique system of camp combinations is a popular choice for families: if you would like to combine your Hungarian program with another subject, for instance windsurfing, then you will have one 120-minute class of Hungarian and one 120-minute class of windsurfing every day. (See the full list of possible camp combinations below.)
