The function and effectiveness of written composition in the texts of Hungarian university students

With the expansion of higher education in Hungary, the need for instruction in academic writing has also emerged. Few studies provide a basis for addressing this need, however, by examining Hungarian students’ knowledge of text production, their writing abilities, or the expectations their texts have to live up to. This study examines whether the writing ability of students is appropriate for their texts to serve as a basis of evaluation in higher education. The qualitative analysis of seminar papers collected from 4th year university students (N=27) is presented, and complemented with a case study. The findings highlight student needs related to conceptual processes and operations in writing.

The difficulties of taking notes in class

Students at primary and secondary school have been struggling with learning disabilities recently. This study points out that these problems are more and more typical at a later age. It holds true also for the college and university students, the representatives of the young adults. Their learning disabilities become evident when they face difficulties in taking lecture notes. The present study reports parts of the results of a wider survey which investigates the young adults’ difficulties in comprehension and taking notes. The study also gives the reasons for these difficulties.

The phonetic and stylistic analysis of the speech of teenagers

Speech has a particular place among the means of expression nowadays. Correct articulation is thus important for the teenagers as well. At the same time, it is this age group whose speech contains a large number of problematic elements. These problems concern their speed of speech, inaccuracies or  disorders,of articulation, stress mistakes and the lack of vocabulary both in a qualitative and in a quantitative way. All these factors have been justified in our first study, in which  we described the quality of the spontaneous speech of teenagers at the age of 15 and 18 with respect to the above-mentioned categories.

In this study, we aim to confirm or confute the results of our survey based on the phonetic and stylistic analysis of the spontaneous speech of the two age groups mentioned above. These investigations have been done with experimental methods.

Everyday phonetics – useful tips for teaching phonetics


It is general experience in the university teaching of phonetics that university students create a negative prejudice against phonetics at the beginning of the course. Students have generally been observed to forget what they learn about phonetics in secondary school, because they consider it too dry and boring. At the same time, they form many good observations and raise many questions. This paper shows examples, exercises and experiments in order to diversify the curriculum. Our aim is to show that our phonetic knowledge can be applied in everyday life. Furthermore, we also want to show its relevance for other fields of linguistics. These exercises do not require extra preparation time of the teacher. Nevertheless, our experience shows that they increase the adventure and efficiency of learning.

Exercises in functional grammar for students in grades 9–12


The present paper has been written as resource material for a workshop on teaching Hungarian, which primarily focuses on teaching grammar from a functional linguistic perspective. The paper consists of two sections: a theoretical part and a practical part with a series of exercises. The theoretical part briefly introduces the general principles of functional linguistics. Then it illustrates the main principles of functional-cognitive linguistics related to the perspective and iconic nature of the language. The practical part provides functional grammar exercises thematically organised in a ‘ready to teach’ form. The two sections are linked together with questions concerning the relation between functional linguistics and teaching practice.

First language teaching in Montessori pedagogy

Maria Montessori’s method provides today’s teachers with a large number of new approaches, ideas and materials for the teaching of writing, reading and grammar skills. The Montessori method has been used at the Batthyány Lajos Általános Iskola (Batthyány Lajos Primary School) in Budapest for ten years.

This paper starts with Maria Montessori’s short biography. Then it introduces the Montessori schools in Hungary. It illustrates Montessori pedagogy with practical examples and ideas rather than with theoretical explanations. It gives insight into how to improve time management, and how to use different work forms and other organizational possibilities. It lists the typical materials of Montessori pedagogy for personalized teaching. The article aims to show the currentness and the advantages of the method. It also aims to raise the readers’ interest to study and maybe even to try the Montessori method.
