Weak reading competency and its pedagogical relevance


This study relates to the national, representative reading assessment project (n = 934) of the Meixner Foundation, which focuses on the update and standardisation of the reading comprehension test procedure measuring students in fourth grade, created by Ildikó Meixner (2000). The study aims to answer the research question whether students performing weakly in reading speed, accuracy, and text comprehension are supported so that they can overcome their difficulties. This article introduces the current system and it provides an overview on the various kinds of reading weaknesses and their prevalence. It analyses the relation between the socio-economic condition and the access to development. It also investigates the possible factors why students in need of development are not supported (28% of the total sample). The analysis points to the fact that neither the type of settlement, nor the parents’ educational attainment influences the participation in intervention programs. Consequently, the key to progress lies in the supporting system as a whole, in its structure and in the enhancement of experts’ knowledge of the treatment of reading comprehension problems.

Perceptions of atypical speech at elementary school


Research on children’s language attitude may provide important insights into first language education and language sensitisation. Children may encounter speakers whose speech differs in some ways from what they are used to. The present study focuses on pupils’ attitude towards three atypical speech types (foreign accent, r-l dyslalia, and deaf speech). The results of the survey with thirty pupils in first grade show that children are able to notice differences between various speech types and they perceive certain types more negatively. Attitudes concern not only the given speech type but also the speaker of that speech type. Proper language sensitization may contribute to the prevention of linguicism and to the development of attitudes.

First language education supported by ICT tools


Today digital culture creates a new environment at school. Institutions play an important role in shaping digital competence. This includes the provision of IT facilities to institutions, the advanced use of devices, the necessarily changing role of teachers, and the selection and application of methods suitable to the content of the curriculum, too. Surveys have shown that there is a relation between the development of IT infrastructure and the increase of efficiency of knowledge results. The use of digital devices is self-evident for students of the 21st century and thus it is certainly worth building on the motivational force of these devices. This study introduces a number of ICT tools and software that are easy to adapt also in first language classes, which may support the organisation and expansion of knowledge in sixth grade. It also presents teachers opinion about the use of devices.

21st century texts and methods in educating readers – or the potentials of Hungarian language classes


What can a teacher do in order to educate readers in Hungarian language classes? How can Hungarian language classes support the promotion of reading as an activity and the development of text comprehension and reading techniques? This study aims to find an answer to these questions. In addition, it deals with the possibilities of educating readers in Hungarian language classes. After a brief outline of various views on encouraging reading, it discusses the necessity of creating a reader-friendly environment that provides the foundation of educating readers. After that it lists exercises where the aim is to create a positive attitude towards first language knowledge and reading. The benefit of these exercises is that each of them contains a text or book review, mainly concentrating on recent youth literature. Moreover, according to the recommendations, most exercises can be placed into digital environment with ICT devices and applications.
