In the Dogs group are children between the ages of 7 and 8 who are fluent in Hungarian. The group works on portions of the first grade study material. At the start of the school year, we focus on listening to and reading the Hungarian alphabet as well as learning to write the letters and learning the basics of cursive writing. Students develop their talking readiness by completing playful assignments. In the second half of the school year the focus shifts to reading and discussing short texts along with expansion of vocabulary and oral language skills. At this level one of the main tasks is to kindle in children a desire to read and to promote the nerve to speak.
