“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
I graduated from the MA programme in English and Hungarian Language and Literature at the University of Szeged. I also have a degree in EFL, and a Cambridge CELTA. I spent an academic year at the University of Hull in England, which was a formative experience in my university studies.
After graduation, I started working at the Department of Hungarian Linguistics, University of Szeged, where I pursued doctoral studies in Hungarian linguistics. My major field of study was textual linguistics, with a focus on the interpretation and analysis of intertextual and incomplete literary texts. Apart from being a doctoral student, I also taught classes in Hungarian language and culture to international groups in the interdepartmental programme of Hungarian Studies at the University of Szeged. I earned my PhD degree in Applied Linguistics in the field of language testing and assessment.
As teachers, our most important task is to discover and draw out each student’s hidden potential. Being a member of Kőrösi’s IB team, I belong to a community that supports me in adhering to the values I consider substantial in teaching.
In my professional work, I always endeavour to organize students of different backgrounds into functional study groups in which they can thrive as individuals and share common values. For me, curiosity in students is of vital importance, so it must be inspired at all times. In my opinion, the most important aspect of teaching and learning English language and literature is to develop reflection and critical thinking. As the pedagogical leader of the IB Diploma Programme, my aim is to establish an assessment system that best serves the students' skills development.
