    HUNGAROBOX - Survey of Hungarian online glossaries and vocabulary exercises

    The Hungarobox Learning Partnership is a two-year long Grundtvig project that brings together five institutions from Finland, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, and Italy, each of them dealing with adult education and language teaching (Hungarian). The aim of the project is to share and change experience and good practices among the partner organizations, especially in the field of teaching vocabulary, and, additionally, in getting acquainted with other educational institutions’ practices. The project also aimed at defining the possibilities to prepare a multilingual online glossary and an exercise package for Hungarian. The partners have previous experience of preparing materials for teaching and learning Hungarian during the projects Survival.hu and Te-Le-Hu. The project has produced a pilot online glossary, containing commonly used vocabulary and expressions with ICT as a topic (levels B1–B2) in the languages of the partners. Later, the glossary may serve as a basis for future cooperation of the partners. An exercise package has also been compiled for learning ICT vocabulary. In addition to partner meetings, workshops and seminars for teachers of Hungarian have been organized. Partners have participated in several seminars, and thus created networks between colleagues. Hungarian belongs to the less spoken European languages and hence, developing possibilities for teaching and learning the Hungarian language, as well as dissemination and exchange of good practices and information among the participating teachers and organizations promotes the linguistic diversity in Europe. Learning vocabulary is an essential part of learning a language. However, less attention is often paid to it than to other parts of language skills. In teaching and learning the Hungarian language, up-to-date material for learning and exercising vocabulary is most welcome, since there are not many materials available for this purpose neither in Hungary, nor in the other participating countries.
