Hungarian language is being taught by the visiting lecturer of Hungarian  in the Department of Slavonic and Finno-Ugrian Studies at the University of Delhi.

This reputed university creates the proper academic framework for research for postgraduate students and language teaching for part time students in the Department of Slavonic and Finno-Ugrian Studies.  The part time courses (beginners-, intermediate and advanced) with six classes a week provide  the structure to learn good conversational Hungarian, elements of translation and the acquaintance with important cultural and historical texts. The interest in academic research in the university is supported by the Bálint Balassi Institute that founded  the "Alexander Csoma de Körös Prize of Hungarian Studies, Delhi " in 2006 for students of Hungarian. Teaching Hungarian language, among other fields, has been one of the major activities of our Centre too. We find that students from the Centre often enroll for advanced courses in the university and students from the university like taking active part in our literary and other programs. But the greatest experience  for all students is to meet visitors from Hungary and try out and practice their Hungarian. The communication is successful even if there are some hiccups and the meetings are memorable for both sides.

Both the Cultural Exchange Program and the grants from the HRD Ministry create the possibility for students to study Hungarian at a higher level or do postgraduate research in Hungary.


Awardees  of the Alexander Csoma de Kőrös Prize of Hungarian Studies 2014 are:


DIVYA SHARMA - First Degree

AMIT KUMAR - Second Degree
