Agnes Pinterne Tasnadi
I am a qualified teacher. I was the manager of an English-Hungarian kindergarten in Buda for nearly 20 years. I believe that children should gain a good understanding of Maths and Hungarian language before they start school. In 2005 I published ‘Movement exercises in nurseries’ based on the Kovacs method (ball and balloon exercises). This has now been featured as a training material for kindergarten teachers. I have four children and a grand child.
I graduated with distinction from ELTE Teacher and Preschool Teacher Training Faculty. My degree specialization was in early years learning, whilst at university I gained great insight into childhood educational development. I have an intermediate language certificate in English, at present I work as a kindergarten teacher of Hungarian and in the future I would like to teach English as well. I think it is really important that children at young age start to learn foreign languages. I believe in the creative methodology of teaching and the stimulation of children’s interest through play. I am a cheerful, patient and enthusiastic member of the kindergarten team.

Ensuring they develop language skills at a critical age
Improving their ability to learn further languages in life
Extending their ability to see the world from multiple perspectives and so be better placed for future challenges.
The opportunities that my children have experienced as a result of growing up bilingual are many. At secondary school they were able to learn new languages easily, which in turn helped them to understand the complexities of the English language better.
They are able to build on this capacity which puts them in a good position for university application. The fact that they speak a second language fluently gives them the edge over single language applicants.
In terms of employment and work experience, they have had the choice and the opportunity of working in Spain and Latin America as well as in their home country.
However the best part of being bilingual is the ability to dip in into two very different cultures. This has enriched and moulded the children into well rounded global citizens.
Bilingualism attaches one to the wider world and provides the children with a range of knowledge and skills which may play a vital role in responding to the future challenges of globalisation.
A bilingual school is a wonderful initiative as it will give children the benefits of bilingualism: communication in two or more languages, two or more cultures, the undoubted cognitive benefits of bilingualism, enhanced self-esteem for speaking more than one language, biliteracy and the many employment advantages.
We place great emphasis on offering various possibilities of sports for the children. Sport activities are supervised by qualified trainers keeping children's age appropriacy in mind.
