Deak Ferenc in Hungary
Deák Ferenc is a bilingual public high school in Szeged, a city in the southeast of Hungary famous for its universities and rich cultural life. The Hungarian exchange differs in several respects from other programs. Brooks students find themselves in a country in which few, aside from some teachers and students at the school, speak English. Since Deák Ferenc is a day school, Brooks students live with host families. Because of language differences, Deák Ferenc created special courses for the exchange students in Hungarian language and literature and music. Students from Brooks study mathematics and Hungarian history, classes also taught in English, with their Hungarian peers.Joenny Vargas ’05 of Haverhill, Mass.
| "In Szeged, not only did I become close to my host, Nora, and her family, but I was integrated into Hungarian cultural for a period of time in a way that I never wish to forget. One big thing that I got out of the whole experience was the strengthening of my sense of independence and self-reliance. Not only did I learn about another culture, family and lifestyle, but I learned a lot about myself and the impact I have on the world around me." Projected Participants
