Foreign Language Teaching and Learning at the Different Educational Levels. Aims and Effectiveness

  • Zsuzsanna Szilvási Kaposvár University, Guba Sándor út 40. 7400 Kaposvár, Hungary


In the Hungarian school education language teaching takes an important place, nevertheless the results are unsatisfactory. I tried to find out the main reasons for it, therefore I talked with students of the Kaposvár University and let them fill in a questionnaire about their language studies and experiences, their opinion about language teaching at the different educational level before the university. Prior to a short presentation and evaluation of the answers I give insight into the Hungarian educational system, the features and main aims of the language teaching from the kindergarten to the university. By the outlining of the deficiencies the problems at the transition from one educational level to the other get a stressed importance.
