One of the strongest assets at DLSB is the exceptional quality of our second language (English) teaching. The bilingual focus of the school prepares students particularly well for higher education in Hungary as well as abroad.

To succeed, our students are provided 18 lessons of English during their first preparatory year and civilisation courses which together include all aspects of language learning and learning about English-speaking countries and the world.

In our ESL curriculum, we put a special focus on storytelling and reading, because according to latest research findings in applied linguistics and reading research consistently show a strong correlation between reading proficiency and academic success at all ages, from the primary school right through to university level: students who read a lot and who understand what they read usually attain good grades. We are using storytelling apps, graded readers, audiobooks as an essential part of the ESL classes.
