A newly emerging hot spot for TEFL teachers, Hungary’s culture and people make it a hugely attractive destination. English learning forms a key pillar of education for Hungarian children.

During this teaching practice scholarship you’ll be immersed in Hungarian tradition and culture; each week gaining up to 65 hours of English teaching practice to proudly boost your TEFL resume.
Before or after your teaching experience with adults or juniors, make the most of your time in Hungary and check off some famous must-see places the country has to offer.
By day or night the open air Széchenyi Baths should be on any TEFL teacher’s checklist when completing your live teaching practice.

Budapest is a bustling city and very popular for short city breaks for Europeans, the country attracts over 10 million visitors annually.
The banks of the Danube River have promenades regularly filled with people. Situated in the middle of the river however is Margaret Island, known as a green gem of Budapest. An oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city, it’s worth a trip.
Budapest, as the capital city is home to just under 2 million inhabitants and lies to the north of Hungary. Planning time to visit Lake Hévíz, the world’s second-largest thermal lake is one not to miss, not to mention one of 10 national parks dotted around the country.
Notable architectural styles in Hungary include forms of Art Nouveau and localised versions of European design trends, with historical buildings, apartments and shopfronts lining the streets. Dining out in Hungary is relatively cheap; traditional cuisine consists of goulash (gulyás stew or gulyás soup), and dishes are often flavoured with paprika, a Hungarian innovation.
Public transport is readily available in Hungary. Travel by train is one of the best ways to see the country, larger cities have trams making sight-seeing easy. Tickets are very reasonable and the rail system is well connected, the urban rail line around Budapest is known as the HÉV, we recommend you also take a ride on the underground Metro.
