Teenagers to attend language courses abroad


Under a government scheme to improve the language skills of students, 140,000 9th and 11th graders will have the opportunity to attend language courses abroad for two two-week periods each year, the human resources minister told a press conference on Tuesday.

Miklós Kásler said the scheme starting in the 2020-2021 school year will cost the central budget 90 billion forints (EUR 282m) per year, and would help young people “acquire practical language skills”.


State Secretary József Bódis said both schools and individual students may compete for the scholarships.
