Linguistic Situation Hungary was the first to accept the Council of Europe recommendation to contribute to the set-up of a nationwide language policy profile. It was produced jointly by the Ministry of Education and the Council of Europe’s experts’ team, including Ágnes Vámos, President of the Association for Bilingual Schools. Language policy in Hungary is based upon the following principles: • to promote linguistic diversity; • to support the individuals’ right to language learning; • to offer a balanced language choice in public education. Hungary’s recent strategy for language learning and development (‘World – Language’ Program), among others, aims at promoting vocational language teaching, the dissemination of good practice, and supporting teacher training and mobility. There are two methods of content-based language teaching in Hungary: a) teaching in order to gain competence in the language (enrichment form), and b) teaching ethnic minority students in their own language. Both forms are successful and integral parts of the Hungarian educational system.
